Yes Man is based on the 2005 biography Yes Man by British humorist Danny Wallace. Wallace describes the six month period during which he said "yes" to everything that was offered to him and how it affected his life.

Those who have both read the novel and seen the movie say that mostly everything was changed—plot, setting, and names—although the basic premise of a man saying "yes" to everything offered to him was kept the same.

Carl's ex-wife Stephanie wants to sleep with him again, but he says "No". As he leaves, bad things begin to happen to Carl (his elevator stalls, his car is towed). Carl hides out in the car of Terrence, the person who started the "Yes" program to remove the "Yes Covenant" from him. This leads to a car accident and Terrence telling Carl that he doesn't always have to say "Yes" if he doesn't want to. Carl then goes and meets Allison at her jogging class and he eventually convinces her that they should be together. The final scene shows Carl and Allison donating a truck full of clothes to a local shelter. When asked where he got the clothes, the scene switches to Terrence's latest "Yes!" seminar, where everyone is naked, implying that Carl asked them all to donate their clothes, to which they apparently responded, "Yes!"
