Yes Man: No Thank You

Yes Man: Trailer 1 @ Apple Trailers

Yes Man: Trailer 2 @ Apple Trailers

Jim Carrey is an actor who elicits extreme opinions, either you adore his antics or he is an oilstain on the parking lot of life. I happen to be one of the former, I justify watching Ace Ventura with the fact that Carrey is a good actor when he wants to be (Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine, etc...). There's nothing wrong with that right? Good with the bad and all that.

Which brings me to the latest movie trailer: "Yes Man'. The epiphany/life changing moment plot doesn't look to be blazing any new ground with some standard romantic interest thrown into the mix. Like many of his earlier movies its up to Jim to carry this by-the-book plot to the finish with his facial and body gyrations which, as mentioned earlier, may not be an entirely bad thing depending on the viewer. Unfortunately I feel many critics are not Carrey-lite fans and will probably (rightly) find nothing interesting in this flick otherwise.

So sadly I must say 'No' to 'Yes Man'.
