Yes Man Movie Overview
ONE WORD CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING
Peyton Reed (previously directed ‘The Break-Up’ and ‘Down with Love’) directs Jim Carrey (previously starred in ‘External Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’, ‘Bruce Almighty’ and others) as Carl Allen in Yes Man.
Carl, a “just say no” man, is persuaded to attend a Yes Man seminar by an acquaintance who has already embraced the positive philosophy. Unleashing the power of “YES” begins to transform Carl’s life in amazing and unexpected ways, getting him promoted at work and opening the door to a new romance. But his willingness to embrace every opportunity might just become too much of a good thing.
Terrence Stamp (previously starred in ‘Get Smart’ and ‘Valkyrie’) is the philosophy guru behind the Yes Man concept, the lovely Zooey Deschanel (previously starred in ‘The Happening’ and ‘Failure to Launch’) plays Allen’s love interest and Bradley Cooper (previously starred in ‘Wedding Crashers’ and ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’) is his best friend, Peter, but Yes Man is ultimately a film all about Jim Carrey. Grossing almost U.S. $229 million in worldwide box office takings since its December opening in theatres, Yes Man is in the top 30 films of 2008.
