Jim Carrey Says Yes Man!

Yes Man, Jim Carrey is back! It’s been three years since Carrey has released a comedy like Yes Man, but it will remind you why you fell in love with the comedian in the first place. In the film, Carrey challenges himself to say "yes" to everything for an entire year.

The film is based on the true story and 2005 biography 'Yes Man' by British humorist Danny Wallace. The film is inspiring and gives viewers a reality check that lies in the word “yes.”

Although the thought of saying Yes to everything can be liberating, it can also be a little dangerous. Imagine all those telemarketing phone calls you would have to say Yes to, instead of slamming the phone while they are in the middle of their sales pitch.

When Hollyscoop caught up with Jim Carrey, we asked him what he thought was the most dangerous thing he has said yes too. “Armed robbery,” Carrey said jokingly at the Los Angeles premiere. "I’ve sat in front of the train tracks figuratively and literally in my life.”

Carrey’s character says “yes” to outrageous things in the film as well, such as bungee jumping, learning Korean and even getting a mail order Bride all in hopes to change his monotonous, lonely life.

"Yes Man" is the perfect movie for the holiday season. For 104 minutes you will forget about your mortgage payment, terrorists and the plunging stock market.

“The world needs something good and fun and just light hearted and also kind of makes you think about engaging in life a little more,” said Carrey in regards to why we should watch this film. The film also stars the Hollywood hunk Bradley Cooper, Zooey Deschanel, Danny Masterson and John Michael Higgins, among others.

Make sure to say YES, this weekend to watch Yes Man, in the meantime check out our special video coverage from the film premiere below.
