News & Interviews for Yes Man
Critic Reviews for Yes Man
The most even-keeled, pleasant and mainstream movie Jim Carrey has made in many a moon.
It's a bland, high-concept comedy where the producers seem to have entered the spirit of the thing by saying yes to every random idea the writers came up with.
Sort of ho-hum stuff, but nice to see a cameo from Rhys Darby, from TV's Flight of the Conchords.
Yes Man founders on a weak script and the rock of Carrey's alarmingly subdued shtick. What has happened to the man who used to combine the verbal surrealism of James Joyce with the body movements of St Vitus?
Yes Man is not the edgy hit it so longs to be. When you look into the eyes of Stamp and the rest, what you see is embarrassed amusement. They said yes - to a big fat paycheque - and laughed all the way to the bank.
Audience Reviews for Yes Man
Jim Carrey is hilarious with his customary physical humor, but he can't do much to compensate for gags that are mostly poorly conceived or just ridiculous, not to mention a plot that borders on complete implausibility and is all about artificial conflicts.
Not the best... interesting idea for a comedy, but Jim Carrey is just too hammy in it and it lacks substance and feels shorter than it is. A few mild laughs and a few gross scenes too (such as the old lady). Zooey is worth watching, but she's done better movies. I've read the book it's based on and it's seriously nothing like it.
