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. 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.]]>

Not very often a comedy comes out with a message worth listening to. "Yes Man" provides just that and exposes the audience to the powers of positive thinking. The movie itself is a montage of Carl saying yes to everything; Carl says yes to learning to speak Korean, Carl says yes to costume party invites from his boss, Carl says yes to flying lessons, and yes to a bar fight, which was one of the funniest scenes of Carl's acceptance journey. Eventually, Carl's yes-ery leads to a new love interest named Allison (Zooey Deschanel) and a promotion at work. And despite all the positive outcomes, Carl learns that saying yes doesn't always necessarily take you in the right direction.
"Yes Man" is a lot of fun to watch. Carrey is on top of his game and is still as funny as always. To answer any questions: Yes the movie is funny. Yes it's worth going to see. And yes you'll enjoy it.
The product title that I am reviewing is: "Yes Man (Two-Disc Special Edition)" and the current image of the DVD cover states that this is a "Two-Disc Digital Copy Special Edition". This however, is incorrect. This product only contains one disc and no longer features the second disc, containing a digital copy. According to the back cover image, the second disc was only available through "April 06, 2010". Personally, I don't really care about having the digital copy, but I thought future Amazon customers should be aware.
Staying positive about opportunities that are presented to us will reward us eventually. I felt great watching this movie, and you might feel great as well.
(Everyone has their own opinion, I am a movie lover, so I love 95% of the movies out there. You may not like it, but I do.)
One might expect the movie to be something really zany given Jim Carrey's typical brand of humor (which I felt smothered the humor in a similar film he was in years back called "Liar, Liar), but for the most part I thought it was a little more serious than that...to the point where when it did veer into craziness, that seemed a bit out of place and contrived. I finished watching this thinking that it might have been interesting if the story had played it completely straight and shown both the good and the bad resulting from living one's life as a "yes man." That's because I discovered about five years ago when I watched Carrey give the best performance of his career in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" he can do "serious" leavened with a touch of humor as well as if not better than his manic shtick.
The best scenes in the movie are those with Carrey and his co-star, Zooey Deschanel. She plays a much more likable character here than the enigmatic Summer Finn in the more recent "500 Days of Summer." Despite the fact that Jim Carrey is about 15 years older than her, I could believe them as a couple and more to the point I liked them as a couple.
So my verdict on "Yes Man" is a guarded "maybe."
