I found Yes Man a surprisingly good
quirky comedy with a romance that generates some pretty good
chemistry between Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel.
I think what makes things work so well
for me is I've been a fan of Carrey's from the very start.
There's some flat performances in the film,
and false situations and bad lines, but the laughs are there
and the message about a personal transformation is endless.
I found it's worth seeing.
Not unlike Liar, Liar, where he
must tell the truth, this Jim Carrey must say "yes"
Let the outrageous situations begin!
It's a lighthearted romantic comedy not
unsimilar to previous films.
But it is great to see Jim Carrey back
where he belongs.
Unfortunately, it is too similar to previous
efforts and leaves you with a feeling of deja vu all over
The star, Jim Carrey, tries getting back
in his zany wacko form as a lonely loan officer who attends a
motivational seminar and then must say yes to every opportunity
and proposal that comes his way from bungee jumping off a bridge
to buying a Persian wife online.
The problem I had with this romantic comedy
is the humor, which doesn't fill every part as we have come to
expect from his movies.
The funny concept has its highs and lows,
but they went a little too low with the vulgarity of one gag
involving an elderly woman, and I'm surprised it didn't earn
the film an R rating.
