title: YES MAN
year: 2008
cast: Jim Carrey
rating: ***

While it isn't fulla huge belly-laughs, it's provides some light chuckles. Carrey's glib, surly, bitter character goes to a motivational speaker (Terrance Stamp) to get more out of life: he isn't hypnotized but rather, is told to simply say yes: and that if he says no, bad things will happen. So he says yes and ends up meeting the girl of his dreams. Getting the job of his dreams. And finding fulfillment in taking on life instead of avoiding it. But he also lands in a lot of trouble. And it's all a very entertaining rehash of "Liar Liar", but seems completely new somehow.
