Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Carl Allen has stumbled across a way to shake free of post-divorce blues and a dead-end job: embrace life and say yes to everything. Take a bungee plunge? Yes. Accept call-now TV offers? Yes. Learn Korean? Yes. Grab the first flight to anywhere? Yes. Win your dream girl? Yes. Crack up fans with a feel-good, laugh-loaded romp? Yes! Working every funny bone in his nimble body and every muscle in his hilariously mobile face, Jim Carrey plays Carl in a YEScapade about opening up to lifes possibilities especially when those possibilities include romance with an intriguing, free-spirited musician (Zooey Deschanel). From the director of The Break-Up comes an invitation to discover the comedy power of yes.

Quick Review:
Jim Carrey fans like it when he has to do stuff he doesn't want to do, like in "Liar, Liar." It's great fun to stick his goofy mug into some absurd series of situations and watch it wiggle and morph its way through jokes that are usually pretty funny despite their predictability. "Yes Man," therefore, should make them happy, with Carrey doing his Carrey thing with the slapstick-but cut through the Carrey-isms to his less over-the-top, calmer humor, and this is actually better than the casual observer might think.

When first we meet Carl Allen (Carrey), he's not much fun. He's anti-social, doesn't want to hang out with his friends, and is still bitter about his years-ago divorce. Then the gods of movie serendipity step in and bring Carl back into contact with a guy he used to know who claims to have found the key to happiness - saying yes to everything. From then on it's a whole new world for Carl, and his new world of yes leads him to adventure, new languages - and even a girl (Zooey Deschanel). But with all that positive affirmation, Carl learns that sometimes he has to say no, or all those yeses start to be pretty hollow and meaningless.

So I'm not even going to qualify this with the usual disclaimers of, "It's not great, but ..." or any of that wishy-washy stuff. "Yes Man" is an enjoyable film. Kind of like "Mannequin" was an enjoyable film back in the day. Nobody goes in looking for gold, but Carrey definitely knows what his fans want and he knows how to deliver it. Plus, it's kind of a cool idea, the whole, "Say yes to everything" thing. Sorta made me want to try it myself! There are some issues, not the least of which is the romance aspect. I mean, I like Deschanel and her character, but I'm not sure she works as a couple with Carrey, and some of the love stuff, especially near the end, seems like it was written for a bad TV movie. That's forgivable, though, because any movie that can work in a "Saw" joke is OK in my book.

The Special Features are OK, sort of fun, but nothing spectacular. It's all pretty basic stuff: Some featurettes about the movie ("Downtime on the Set of Yes Man with Jim Carrey"; "Jim Carrey: Extreme Yes Man"), some featurettes about the fake band in the movie ("Future Sounds: Munchausen by Proxy"; Munchausen by Proxy music videos), and an appropriately amusing Gag Reel.

In Conclusion:
A little bit better than it might sound, "Yes Man" isn't anything new, but it's entertaining, and there are some interesting ideas for things to do on a dull weekend.Yes Man
