Product Description

Yes Man star Jim Carrey as Carl Allen, a guy whose life is going nowhere - the operative word being "no". That is until he signs up for a self-help program based on one simple covenant: say yes to everything, and anything. Unleashing the power of "Yes" begins to transform Carl's life in amazing and unexpected ways. But will this end up being too much of a good thing?

From Amazon.co.uk

Jim Carrey does wonders with a slight premise that finds his reserved, emotionally-distant character, Carl Allen, a banker who routinely turns down loan applications, accepting a challenge to open up to life by saying "yes" to everything. A man who constantly disappoints friends by weaseling out of opportunities for bonding and happiness, Carl radically changes into a creature of complete spontaneity. By never saying no anymore, he gets into situations with unpredictable outcomes, such as driving a homeless stranger to a scary-looking park at night. But for the most part, whatever Carl says yes to becomes a road to worthwhile experiences, even receiving a promotion at work for approving hundreds of micro-loans against all policy. Zooey Deschanel, who often plays appealing kooks, is very good as Carl's girlfriend, a free spirit who takes to his positivity about everything, for a while anyway. Director Peyton Reed (Down with Love) makes the most out of the gimmicky comedy, as does Carrey, who does wonders with scenes that are often left open-ended just to see what the brilliant comic will do with them. --Tom Keogh

Format: DVD
Yes Man is loosely based on the book by a British chap called Danny Wallace. (Hollywood is hoovering up our comedians, it seems... and if that sentence isn't laden with huffiness, I wrote it wrong.) The film and the book differ in all ways but the name, almost, so if you read it and you're hoping to see its likeness on the screen, you'll be really disappointed, maybe... but perhaps that's not necessarily a bad thing, as the film really is most good.

Zooey Deschanel (of Elf fame - she sings in this, too... such a treat!) plays the love interest and Terence Stamp is the self-help guru who galvanizes our hero. Both are excellent but, as usual, it's all about the Carrey who stars as Carl Allen, a fella whose life is a terrible shade of grey. He displays all the symptoms of depression, and his performace actually resonated quite deeply. He doesn't go out except to go to work where his day consists of answering "No" to loan applicants and he actively avoids human contact - including his friends - often going to great lengths to do so... he's created a bubble that he exists in, and he is unhappy and very much alone having bricked himself in.

Carrey is under-rated as a serious actor - but this is the same chap who gave a beautiful performance in The Truman Show. In Yes Man, his portrayal of a depressed man is really very authentic, and if you recognise his behaviour in yourself (as I did) you may find early parts of the film a little difficult.

Format: DVD
When Carl's (Jim Carrey) marriage fell apart, so did his life. Even though it's been two years, he still can't move on. So he sits at home and avoids his friends. Not that Peter (Bradley Cooper) and Rooney (Danny Masterson) let him drop out of life completely. Carl works at a bank where he denies every loan that comes across his desk.

Things changes dramatically when he decides to attend a conference run by Terrence Bundley (Terrence Stamp). Singled out of the crowd, Carl is put on the spot and agrees to a new contract with himself, to say "Yes" to everything that comes his way.

And almost immediately it begins working for him as he meets Allison (Zooey Deschanel). The two begin a romance very quickly. But can Carl continue his winning streak by saying "Yes" to everything?

This is the part where I condemn the movie with faint praise.

Billed as a comedy, there were several laugh out loud moments. Emphasis on the several. I was ready to laugh hard at the entire movie, and that just didn't happen.

On the whole, the movie is pretty predictable. That was one reason I didn't find it as funny as I expected to. I saw most of the jokes coming long before the punch line. Likewise, all but a couple of the plot points were overly familiar.

On the other hand, I found the story enjoyable. I identified with Carl a little too much, so I was rooting for him to get out of his rut and enjoy life again. Heck, it even made me rethink how I am living my life. Pretty head stuff from a comedy. And the great acting from everyone in the cast made it easy to like the characters.

Since the movie is rated PG-13, I expected the language and sexual nature of some of the jokes.

'Carl' ( Jim Carey ) is in a rut, his life is going nowhere fast, he seems to say 'no' to allmost everything wether it's making excuses to not meet up with his friends to saying no to the vast majority of loan applicants at the bank at which he works.
Having lost his marriage some while back his life is nearly allways..work..a visit to the 'video' store..home...watch the films and yes it's nearly allways alone.............until...he actually says yes to attend a meeting where members are encouraged to say 'yes' more often than 'no'..........'Carl' is singled out by the speaker as a new member.
'Carl' takes the directive on board, but he takes it as an instruction to never say no..............it completely changes the dynamics of his life.
The film is sometimes outragous often very funny, but more importantly has a decent story-line flow.
I think this is probably one of the best movies 'Jim Carey' had done for a while back then which in my opinion, i'd say...it's worthy of at least a watch......

This is a return to form for Jim Carrey after the disappointing Number 23 (i liked it, but not a lot of people did). Carrey stars as Carl, the man who says "No" to everything including his mates. But after one of his old workmates offers him a chance to change his life and after a dream where no-one seemed to care he was dead, he decides to attend a "Yes" conference where you must say "Yes" to everything. This word changes Carls work and personal lives for the better with hilarious moments throughout.

An awesome movie, looks amazing on Blu-ray and also has some great extras included.
