This is one of the few films I can just endlessly watch and still be equally be amused each time. The gleeful direction and score also compliment each other against one of Carrey's better performances.
I know it's not a genuine five star movie but I've got a soft spot for this little gem.
One of my favourite Jim Carrey films, NO MAN NO MAN.
Jim Carrey's comic convulsions are the only bright spots in this otherwise dim and predictable comedy.
Yes man is alright, it contains Jim Carrey's usual weird voices and what not. My problem with it is the weird spawn of people it inspired to start living the "yes man" lifestyle. Like the ones that constantly try to be spontaneous and then post on Instagram how spontaneous they are. Those people are my least favorite.
Although just a continuation of some of the roles he had played earlier,it isn't as entertaining as them.
Not bad, not great.
Great concept but decidedly average in execution. Had the potential to be a darker comedy in the same vein as Eternal Sunshine but it often goes for the lowest common denominator.
Carrey is occasionally irritating but has his moments. Deschanel & Rhys Darby are fun.
I probably wouldn't say Yes to watching it again given the choice.
What I Learned:
Casting goes a long way
Mythical Quirky Zooey: ★★★★★
I probably have more amount of beef on rom-com genre than most people, but YES MAN is an exceptional, many-splintered thing for me. Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel are just as quirky as this movie is, and I admire every single scene in this. And whenever they both sing, throwing quotes, being nerdy, I just accept it as a joyous feeling infecting my mood.
1 star because my dad loves it
Underrated movie with an early supporting appearance by Bradley Cooper playing a character who isn't a total douche.
