Yes Man

I was about to write a long post, but decided that a shorter one will best suit this movie.

Yes Man was a 2008 comedy movie starring Jim Carrey as Carl, a man who decides to say yes to everything after attending a seminar. It also starred Zoory Deschanel as his love interest, Bradley Cooper, Sasha Alexander, Danny Masterson, Terrence Stamp, John Michael Higgins, Rhys Darby, and a whole lot more. It was directed by Peyton Reed and was written by Nicholas Stoller, Jarrad Paul, and Andrew Mogel. It was based on the story of Danny Wallace wherein he decided to just say yes!

It wasn't as funny as I expected, but still a lot of fun. I grew up watching Jim Carrey movies, watching him contort his face in all possible directions. While others find it annoying, I find it hilarious. His antics still brought the Jim Carrey label of fun in this movie.Some of the jokes in the movie was not funny at all, but somehow I ended up smiling whenever it was Carrey delivering those lines. I know he's not as active now as he was before, but it's good to know that he still can make a movie like this, and a pretty successful one as well.

I think the whole Yes thing was not supposed to be taken literally. I am not too familiar with the story of Danny Wallace, but I assume his  point was not to actually say yes to everything. We also have to discern before we act. Personally, I interpreted the movie as finding happiness in the little tings, going out of your comfort zone to realize there are a lot more things to be appreciative about. In our world today, people are becoming more selfish, maybe, and this movie portrayed how a simple can act can do good to another. It even showed the consequences of the wrong decisions we'd probably made. It's not about saying yes to everything, but being more open to opportunities, and to life in general. It's about living.

Probably not the best movie, not even my favorite Jim Carrey movie, but it was still pretty good. Jim Carrey is still a star in my perspective and his movies always make me feel good. It was not awe-nspiring, but it was inspiring nonetheless. I had a great time watching it. Was able to squeeze in a few laughs, and just sat on my chair feeling good about it. It was so relaxing and entertaining.

  5. I seldom leave comments, but I looked at a few of the remarks here "Yes Man".
    I actually do have some questions for you if you don't mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few of the remarks come across like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post.

  13. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the
    screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though!

    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
