    I went to see this movie once with my best friend, and then my girlfriend asked me to go see it again with her.

    I can honestly say that I laughed just as much the second time around, if not more. To me, that says a lot... a comedy is supposed to make you laugh, and this movie delivered.

    It was definitely nice to see Jim return to his roots for this role, and he proved that he's still got it. For me, this was a throwback to the time of Ace Ventura, Liar Liar, etc.

    If you are not a fan of Jim Carrey, it probably won't be worth it for you... if you are, you will love this predictable, fun romantic comedy.

    As a side note, whoever did the costuming for Zooey is awesome... I loved the outfits and it made her character that much better.

    This movie I would say was pretty good. It was a little predictable though. I say that because it was just another romantic comedy. I'm sure some people would disagree with that. All of the romantic comedies I've seen, all ended the same. After the break up at the end of the movie they got back together. but overall it was a good movie, very entertaining. I would say it is a must see movie.

    Me and my cousin went to see this movie like a week ago. And we loved it! it made me and her laugh so much! I thought that it was a great movie. Although the grandma scene isn\'t for under aged viewers it is still ok for them to see it because it is a short scene and doesn\'t show any nudity or anything!

    I saw this movie a couple days ago with my Dad, and I have not laughed that hard in a long time. We loved the movie. It has some slower-moving times but it is entertaining and also has a good theme of saying yes to life. Very funny. My only criticism is that I could have done without the Grandma scene. Fortunately, it is short.

    Funny, Funny, Funny! I took my family to see this movie and I am glad I did. This is a great family movie and will leave you smiling after it is over. They are making me write a minimum of 45 words which is stupid because you don't need that many words to say that a movie is worth going to see. I think I have the minimum now.

    This movie is just okay, but it has some really uncomfortable moments. I gave it three stars instead of two because I adored Zooey Deschanel. She was also in Elf, but I haven't seen her too much since then.

    What's good about it: Zooey Deschanel. Carrey's goofy bossman who has a thing for preposterous costume parties. Carrey's moments of physical comedy.

    What's uncomfortable: There is one scene that almost caused me to leave the theater. I was in the movies with my 77 year-old mother and my pre-teen kids, and there is a makeout scene between Carrey and his elderly neighbor that almost made my mom get up and leave. They didn't show anything, but it was just so...icky...it made me cringe. I don't really understand what this one scene added to the movie, and I think we would have gotten the point with a lot less discomfort, but the teenagers will probably laugh out loud over it.

    What's bad:
    The whole idea that someone would be dumb enough to agree to say yes to anything after being in such an extreme state of withdrawal from life is pretty ludicrous. I didn't even believe that Carrey's character could have been persuaded to go to the YES Man seminar in the first place, let alone be convinced to change his whole life in the course of one 5-minute conversation.

    Who would like this movie:
    You will enjoy this movie if you do not require your movies to be overly believable, and if you have a high tolerance for tastelessness. Also, you might enjoy it if you have nothing else to do and you have seen all the other movies that are out right now.

    Kid warning: I would not recommend this movie for younger kids, and definitely not for cross-generational groups including very conservative 77 year-old mothers.

    Jim Carrey is going back to his old roots of slapstick comedy. Does he pull it off this time around? Well, I would say, 'Yes.'

    This story-line was nothing new, similar to 'Liar, Liar,' but not quite as funny. I was expecting Carrey's humor and actually hoped that there was more of it in this movie. Not that he would have to take it overboard, like in other movies, but enough to keep the laughs going throughout the movie. Maybe it was the PG-13 rating that held back the antics. I don't know, but I wanted more.

    I still recommend this movie because there are some great belly laughs and Carrey is hard not to laugh at. The actor playing his boss (sorry, don't know his name) was a fun character. Maybe the DVD release will be an Un-cut/Unedited version... I'm sure Carrey was censored, so to speak. Go and have a good laugh just don't expect this one to be the ultimate comedy. 3 Stars.

    This is the movie where Jim Carrey plays a guy who starts saying “yes” all of the time and gets into a bunch of wacky situations and finds that his life is miraculously changed. It should not be confused with the movie where Jim Carrey plays a guy who starts telling the truth all the time and gets into a bunch of wacky situations and finds that his life is miraculously changed. That is called “Liar Liar.”

    Okay, that’s not fair. Though this movie has a similar concept as Carrey’s earlier hit, “Yes Man” has a totally different tone. It’s not all slapstick and craziness—there’s actually a feel-good point to it about the way we choose to live our lives. Carrey does a half-and-half performance—half his early, out-of-control persona, and half his more recent “wide-eyed wonder” style.

    The plot has Carrey as Carl Allen, a boring guy who seems to live to say no, until the day the Yes People led by Terence Stamp convince him to say yes to everything. Of course he finds love (with Zooey Deschanel, enough reason to say yes to anything right there) and has a bunch of wild adventures and is a changed man. Actually, a couple of the adventures genuinely are pretty wild, and funny too. Good film for Carrey—maybe not quite at the level of “Liar, Liar” but much better than his recent flops.
