User Review

Amusing

Rating: 7/10


Being lucky, I already saw "Yes Man" and was pleasantly surprised. Jim
Carrey is not really my all time favorite (despite his comic talent and
acting skills), but in this movie he seems to have hit the spot.

The story itself is really simple: Carl (Jim Carrey), a very negative
man, goes to a meeting among the very positive Yes people, whose
charismatic leader (Terence Stamp) preaches that one should say Yes to
all questions and agree with all propositions. Carl is reluctantly
convinced to try it out, and after meeting a girl on a scooter (the
ever so lovely Zooey Deschanel) all sorts of things start happening
around him. But being 100% positive might be tricky sometimes…

It is all very silly, of course – but this feel-good comedy has a small
undertone of seriousness as well. And it has a great cast, many
delightful scenes, a reasonably relaxed Jim Carrey and a lighthearted
style. Y/N? I say Y.
