Yes Man(2008)


Stars :Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel, Bradley Cooper, John Michael Higgins and Rhys Darby.

Its been a while since I saw a Jim Carrey movie,yesterday I got to see this one "Yes Man",I got to say I was not disappointed at all.Jim Carrey always carries the ability to make you laugh no matter what mood you are in and this one was no different.

The movies begins with our Mr Carl Allen(Jim Carrey) a bank employee in L.A. lying in the very lows of his life and struggling to live and love.His wife has left him and he dodges every invitation or opportunity to socializes to avoid meeting her and prefers being in his void.So in all he had hit the rock bottom.One day he meets an old friend who persuades him to attend a seminar which will turn his life .Our man goes to this seminar and meets the "Yes Man" who publicly talks Carl him into making a covenant with himself. A covenant of saying yes to everything that comes his way.What happens next is a delight to watch.

The movie is a typical Jim Carrey movie but has lovely love story between our Mr.Carl and Allison (Zooey Deschanel).Their ride through thick and thin is an integral and beautiful part of the movie.Some of the moments between them are really beautiful ,in fact I fell in love with Allison for her shear energy and zeal for life.Jim Carrey carries the movie on his shoulders and is ably supported by the other members too , Bradley Cooper looks great and so does Sasha Alexander.
It was so good to see a Jim Carrey movie after a long long time.

The movies is funny and loved watching it .Its was very much like me and a lot of us ,we all want to say "Yes" to a lot of things but some how we always end up saying the wrong word "NO".

It is no "Bruce Almighty " but definitely fun movie.I enjoyed it and went to bed with a smile on my face.
