Here is a movie about a man who decided to say yes to everything, at the beginning I was actually having fun watching him do it, after a while it became a drag then it was just stupid.

The movie is based on a memoir of the same name by British humourist Danny Wallace. The book tells of the 6-month period in which he committed himself to saying 'Yes' to everything based on a brief conversation with a stranger he met on the bus.

The movie acting and stunts were cool, especially when I found out that Jim Carrey did some of his stunts, even breaking 3 ribs during the process.

The movie tells the story of a bank loan officer Carl Allen (Jim Carrey) has become withdrawn since his divorce from ex-wife Stephanie (Molly Sims). Routinely ignoring his friends Pete (Bradley Cooper) and Rooney (Danny Masterson), he has an increasingly negative outlook on his life.

He got invited to a seminar where he is told to change and be a Yes Man, an advice Carl took literal and started to say yes to everything and everyone that comes his way.
It first all works out for him, till it just turned out bad.

The movie is directed by Peyton Reed, who did Break Up 2006 with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Anniston.
But as I said in the beginning it became a drag. The movie was a financial success though making over $220 million dollars in the box office compared to its $ 70 million budget.
