Goofs

When Carl's car runs out of gas, he has already turned the car around, so that it was facing downhill. The obvious move had been to simply put the car into neutral (N) and let it ride down the hill to minimize the walking distance to the gas station. See more »

Yes Man
31 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I always get excited about a new Jim Carrey movie. In my opinion, he has rarely done anything unwatchable in whatever genre from The Mask to Liar Liar via Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind. Yes Man is an excellent feel-good comedy with an outstanding turn from Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel & Terence Stamp. The movie is unfortunately predictable (like most Jim Carey flicks) but very enjoyable with a hard-to-ignore message about how people should live their lives. Don't be surprised after seeing the film to start saying yes a bit more often and how much of a difference it may have on your daily life. Yes Man is a worthy addition to Jim Carrey's filmography.
