'Yes Man' is based on the real life story of a Brit called Danny Wallace. In the real story, Danny's life is turned upside down when a random bloke on a bus tells him that he should say yes more. Yes to life. Yes to opportunities etc. He starts saying yes to EVERYTHING- with absolutely hilarious results.

The film has tried to take that on, and it could have been great, but for one problem. They Americanised it. The thing that made the real story so funny wasn't so much what Danny was doing, but the fact that it was a British guy doing it. For a reserved Brit, it would have been a big deal and very weird to do what he was doing, but for an American? The whole 'Yes Man' thing was turned into something that lots of people were doing. It was just another fad, being led by a man who wanted to create a 'show', rather than change people's lives for the better. By setting it in American culture, it diluted the story and made it into just another one of those 'look-at-Jim-Carrey-being silly' films.

Overall, if you haven't read the book (or any of Danny Wallace's books), go and watch the film. It's a funny 2 hours-worth of entertainment. If you have read the book, avoid it unless you want the story to be spoilt.

Fairly good movie. Could you say Yes to everything you do? Based on a Wallace book - that is a question answered by Jim Carrey!

Negative no man Carl Allen (Carrey) is challenged to say yes to every offer that comes his way.

Based on Danny Wallace's experiences and his best selling novel, the comedy takes a great concept from Wallace and puts an intriguing spin on a no man's life that will make viewers believe in themselves before they are left in doubt as the film dives into cinematic hero ending.

Jim Carrey is a comic genius. Being a huge fan myself, I have found it hard these last 5 years without his charismatic unique humour absent from the big screen. Not since Bruce Almighty has Carrey been his true funny self and not since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind has he delivered a memorable performance and with this intriguing concept of a hard life and turning it into fun would be right up the star's street.

As charming and easy to watch as the actor is, his humour is yet again absent and if you plan on seeing this film because you are a fan, I'm afraid you will be disappointed.

However the concept of saying yes to everything keeps the film alive as Carl battles all the obstacles to continue his route of honesty. As we see Carl accept invitations to fancy dress parties, helping out an old lady and giving a lift to a homeless guy we are invited into the film and are imagining ourselves in that position. Could you say yes to everything that comes your way?

Instead of being a battle of options Carl simply accepts everything in his stride which has a feel good motive and an ideology of doing the right thing or you will be punished. When we see the signs of reluctance Carl is punished in the daftest of lucky coincidences you will ever view. But as a viewer you are always routing for Carl to continue to say yes

It is very relaxing and assuring to see Carl having happy moments because of his positive behaviour and this further encourages audiences to believe in themselves. On leaving the cinema I thought strongly about that viewing and thought how different life would be with that simple word.

It's a wonder how this thought would still be present as closing in on the finish the film takes a dismal clichéd turn as Carl fights to redeem his vital mistake that is every romantic convention right there in front of you.

Yes Man has one of the finest soundtracks of the year with music from Eels and Munchausen by Proxy that further establishes a positive vibe.

Though the first half makes us believe the climax runs into an ordinary spiral that makes it feel like another film and nothing special.

7/10
