«Yes Man» is a film with Jim Carrey inspired by a true story. Here is our review of the hilarious 2008 movie.
«Yes Man» is a 2008 film directed by Peyton Reed and written by Nicholas Stoller, Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel. The vast includes Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel, Bradley Cooper, John Michael Higgins, Rhys Darby, Danny Masterson and other performers. The film also sees Carrey as the producers of the film, who benefits from his name. The work draws inspiration from the real life of the journalist Danny Wallace, who after spending a good part of his life refusing any proposal began to understand what was wrong with his attitude. The reporter also makes a cameo in the film, appearing right in the final scene.
With A Jim Carrey tremendously inspired in interpreting a character with comic implications but also with a very particular personality, «Yes Man» is a film that starts from a very interesting synopsis, not disappointing expectations. The situations that occur before and after the fateful decision manage to involve and entertain as much as I can, really ranging between all the thousands of adventures that can happen to any person in every single day, and the acting manages to be perfectly fitting in every juncture of the film. As always, Carrey manages to be comical even in the role of a coach who cannot enjoy life, but it is clearly in the moments of where he finds himself entangled in any adventure that manages to make us laugh in two: memorable for example the meeting with the nice old woman lying down.
In the second part of the film, however, the comic story is accompanied by a more reflective aspect that allows us to grasp the underlying message of the entire work. Knowing a person capable of changing his life for the better will in fact allow the protagonist to find the right balance between always saying yes and always saying no, to defeating his underlying weaknesses and finally to live his life in the best way for him. In all this, the rhythm of the film proves perfectly functional from the entertainment point of view, and although the work follows a fairly classic grid and has a fairly obvious ending, the viewer will still be able to enjoy it to the fullest: this is not the type of films from which it is expected to receive particular surprises.
