(5-Okay Film)

Inconsistent. Broad. Amusing.

Carl Allen (Carrey) is in a deep funk. Ever since his wife left him, he’s given up on all relationships. Surprised by an old colleague (Michael Higgins), Carl, uncharacteristically, accepts an invitation to a motivational seminar, led by guru Terrence Bundley (Stamp), who extols the power of saying yes. Perhaps going too far, Carl begins saying yes to everything, which leads him to meeting the free-spirited Allison (Deschanel). A good vehicle for Carrey with some clever moments, the premise is a bit too obvious, the crisis and immediate resolution too contrived. I enjoyed Yes Man. It has a few good, comedic scenes, appealing leads, but suffers from a couple of unfunny scenes and a basic plot.
