Jim Carrey's bungee jump stunt was the final scene filmed, but not before it caused many problems for the insurance company and the producers, due to his insistence of performing the stunt himself. The insurance company was not willing to underwrite a premium for a lead actor over a stunt double. Finally, an agreement was reached between both parties, with the producers assuring two things to the company: the stunt to be performed after filming technically ended; and the scene could only be filmed once. Eight cameras were used to film the stunt, and Carrey performed it uninjured. See more »

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.
