More than I bargained for!,
This review is from: Yes Man [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a 5-star movie. Difficult to believe but it's true.
You may think it's JUST the next Jim Carrey film, well yes, it is that, but it's also so much more. `Yes Man' has some fantastically funny one-liners and comedic situations, made brilliant not just by the writing, or the delivery, but by the story, which has something genuine, affectionate and spontaneous about it. I ignored this film for a while only because it was billed as the `next-Jim-Carey-movie' (a tagline unfairly applied to all of his films, no matter the disparity among the characters he plays), but this is a fantastic romantic comedy, because the central theme of the self-help seminar and the man who must say yes to everything that it tackles and parodies turns out not to be not so ludicrous a premise after all.
Personally I'd never attend the self-help seminar that Carrey's character does and I probably wouldn't benefit as much from it as he seems to, so I guess that makes me a No Man, but at least I said yes when someone asked me to watch this film.
P.S. Make sure you watch till the end credits- the chin-to-the-ground rollerblading in the final scene looks so cool!
