I went to see this yesterday in the cinema with mixed feelings. I don't háte Jim Carrey, but most of his movies make me walk away half-way through. Sometimes he just gets too over the top annoying to a point where I can't take it anymore. But there's always a lot of laughing to be had. But Yes-man surprised me in a positive way. I really laughed a lot and Carrey seems to have found a middle way in doing some really crazy stuff without being over the top annoying.

There's the occasional pulling of strange faces and of making strange noises, but not too much, just right. Me and my brother walked out of the cinema with a feeling that we'll be yes-men, when we want to.
All in all a great movie!

*no trailer added because youtube decided to be down and out atm.

You are braver than I am. The only thing I could ever watch was Ace Ventura... and it stopped there.

Bleh, still not a big fan of Jim Carrey... At least not any of his non serious roles...

feel the same way about Carrey (remember Lisa Simpson saying "Jim Carrey can make you laugh with just a spastic flailing of his limbs).

he was perfectly cast as Count Olaf, though.

I will (have to) decide per movie again I think.

What's next, "No-man"?

Funny movie, if you can look past Jim's past roles.

I just haven't gotten around to watching this yet. I'm kind of like that with Carrey films, he hasn't done anything since Spotless Mind that has really moved me past a tv movie on a sunday afternoon

'no-man' is what people start out with, the whole thing was that Carrey wás a No-man and he 'had' to be turned into a yes-man.

@ Lee: I found it was worth my 6,5€ on a chilly friday evening :P

apparently yes, I'm living in the previous millenium ;)

Now and then I like to visit the cinema with friends. Next to that I only got a 17" pc screen or a somewhat bigger tv..hard to compete.
