The fictional band "Munchausen By Proxy" featured in the film is named after the Münchausen syndrome by proxy, which is a psychological disorder, and is composed of Zooey Deschanel and the real-life band "Von Iva", which got the part after Music Supervisor Jonathan Karp saw the cover of their CD in Amoeba, in Hollywood. On Lakeshore Records' soundtrack release, they are credited as "Munchausen by Proxy (f/ Zooey Deschanel & Von Iva)". See more »
When Carl is singing the song "Jumper" to the man on the ledge, he sings it incorrectly. He sings "And if you never want to see me again, I would understand." The actual lyric is "And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand." 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.
