Yes Man had the potential to be a truly zany and unique comedy given its premise, however, the predictable script doesn't go above and beyond and follows a formulaic romantic comedy. However, Jim Carrey's performance does make this one worth a watch.
Yes Man is intermittently funny and Jim Carrey is as charming as ever but its predictability, similarities to Liar Liar which I haven't seen in a long time and cliched execution fail to make the film truly live to the potential of its "memoir-based-although-the-movie-story-is-fictional" premise. I was interested in the romantic aspect of the story but I feel like a lot more could've been done so that it could become one of the best comedies of 2008. I think I'll just stick with Get Smart instead starring Carrey's buddy Steve Carell and which also happened to have been released in 2008, distributed by Warner Bros. and has Terrence Stamp in it.
Carrey returns to comedy and shows that he's still got it. He and Deschanel are great and quirky together, providing the highlight of this film. The story is rather good, but predictable and a bit too similar to Carrey's old Liar Liar.
Haven't been much of a Jim Carey fan for a while, not for a long time, who's counting years? At first glance, this movie bored me, it had no traction. But wait, the yes moments started a titilation of reveals, turning Carrey's lifeless Carl Allen into one hot loving life go-getter! Carrey has got his mojo back and we want more!
Great funny movie journey of a man who says yes starring Jim Carey and the girl who stars in New girl. I normally hate love romance movies but this is really interesting and I want to see what happens. Jim Carey to me, is the greatest comedian of all time and anything he does is good, he doesn't have any bad movies. I enjoyed this movie and would definitely watch this movie again.
Not LOL-funny, but meh-funny. A 'Liar Liar' spin-off plot-wise, replete with signature ho-hum Jim Carey. I still enjoyed it; despite having spent the entire film lamenting the dangers of its basic premise.
