Movie Review - Yes Man
Starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel.
Rated PG-13 for crude sexual humor, language and brief nudity.
I didn't exactly jump for joy, but it was entertaining and although it has a lot of the regular Jim Carrey antics - it also has a lot of heart and managed to win me over into liking it. It's a great flick to set down and just munch on some popcorn while enjoying a break from Christmas craziness.
Jim Carrey plays a man that has been divorced and turns away from any social interaction so he doesn't get hurt again. His buddies try to pull him out of it, by inviting him to lots of things, but unfortunately, he always says NO. Soon, he meets up with an old friend who convinces him to come to a YES meeting where a man challenges him to say YES. Carrey then carries then the rest of the movie on saying YES to everything. It's a wild ride and although all the little sketches don't exactly feel like a full thought, they are strung together loosely around a simple story that allows for the random sketches to feel part of the process.
Also - it features a quick ten minutes of pure Nebraska footage including the stars at a Husker game.
Yes Man is playing at Cinema 3 in McCook. Check www.fridleytheatres.com for showtimes.
