Here is Yes Man
’s premise, loosely based on a memoir with the same name: Carrey's character decides, with the nudging of a self-help guru played
by a slumming Terence Stamp (who provides the only 15 seconds of the
film actually worth watching), that he will say yes to everything. So he binge drinks, takes flying lessons, responds to spam about penile enhancement, and gets a blowjob from a toothless old lady. This dilemma completely lacks drama. Carrey could say no whenever he wants to and thereby resolve the situation, he just chooses not to. All the perfunctory plot elements get trotted out, and the ending happens when it should. Everything's so apathetic that the movie feels like a shrug, and even Flight of the Conchords
' Rhys Darby, phoning in a sad Ricky Gervais impersonation, can't get a laugh out of this dreck. Like drunken sex, Yes Man
just happens to you, and then you forget about it.
