Jim Carrey is actually getting better.

Loved the movie. Jim Carrey does a good job as being both serious, and funny. All in all, its a pretty good movie.

Only Because Zooey's So Cute!

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Generally speaking, I run (screaming) from Jim Carrey movies. This dude wore out his welcome back when Nirvana was cranking out hits. Yet Jim's lone salvation in the comedy YES MAN is delectable and cuddly cute Zooey Deschanel; playing a free spirit romantic interest Zooey is a wonderful counter to Carrey's overplayed antics. Which makes YES MAN an enjoyable experience, as a shallow loan officer who constantly says "No" to lenders has his life transformed via a rowdy seminar (like that plot's never been done before) and commits to saying "Yes" to everything he's asked. Meanwhile he enters into a romance with very predictable results.
While Carrey often gets chalkboard-scraping annoying, he does exhibit (on occasion) a delightful rustic charm. For example, his guitar serenade to prevent a disturbed Luis Guzman from jumping off a ledge is the film's best feel-good moment. There are similar little gems interspersed throughout the movie (an encounter with an elderly lonely neighbor being one of them) to offset Carrey's perpetual mayhem. There's a sizable supporting cast (with only Terrence Stamp and Guzman standing out from the crowd) and the story is so predictable you can set your watch to it, yet YES MAN is fun because Zooey is so cute you forget Carrey's around.
