In the Spanish dubbed version of the movie, Carl refers to the first cake that the celebrity cake lady shows him as looking like Ricky Martin instead of Mickey Rourke. See more »
After Carl goes bungee jumping he is seen answering his cellphone while still suspended from the cord. Due to the risk of them falling out of your pocket mid jump, most, if not all, bungee services would advise you to empty your pockets of anything valuable, like a cell phone. See more »

I saw this movie as a early showing and having gotten the tickets for free I said "what the heck, I'll see anything for free". So right off the bat I went in with low expectations. The previews made it look like the same old Jim Carrey Schtick. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
There was no ridiculous plot line (Liar Liar) or over the top characters (Ace Ventura) but a simple yet humorous story-line that is played to perfection by Carrey. There were plenty of good chuckles to be had and some down right laughs (and yes for those into it, a gross out scene that will make even this amazingly desensitized movie going generation cringe).
Overall, Yes Man is definitely worth the 10 bucks or so that movies are now ridiculously priced out now a days. But most definitely worth the trip if its free :-p.
