Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
Starts out wobbly but ends up quite nicely, primarily because Carrey has a wonderful acting partner in Zooey Deschanel.

Carrey's most satisfying live-action effort since "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind."

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
This is basically a nerd-loosening-his-tie romantic comedy done in the manic-compulsive mode of "Liar Liar."

Like many previous Carrey vehicles, the point of this one directed by Peyton Reed is that one should not live at the extremes, but should...

The biggest problem with this movie - not that it's mediocre, dull, or barely written (though it's guilty on all counts). It's that Carrey...

An appealing Deschanel does her best, but the pair is mismatched in every way, from age to attitude. The entire movie is hung on Carrey's...

The comedy, to the extent there is any, consists mainly of Carrey's verbal asides and strained reactions to people. The script gives him...

This movie is a must go. It's very funny. I haven't laugh this much for a movie in a long time. I recommend this movie to everyone....

"YES MAN" -- 'Yes' is the New 'KNOW' =

By jimchudnow
(Based on an advance preview:) This is one of the best JIM CARREY efforts in years, mainly because he is comparatively "restrained" in his craziness and surrounded by strong supporting characters....

Please for the love of God Stop writing reviews before you see the Movie. Nobody cares!!!!!

This is by far the worst movie I have ever seen! I can not believe anyone would have rated this movie PG-13! It had so much profanity that I was embarressed. I had taken my child and a friend to...

awesome

By Natasha_v
it was awesome, probably the first movie where Jim Carrey doesn't act like a complete moron. Besides, being a good comedy, the movie was actually quite thoughtful. That is some new combination....

Smiles for Jim Carrey

By katherinekiyoko
Jim Carrey's movies always seem to be the same. He always seems to play the same character that has a boring life that magically turns perfect. But 'Yes Man' was a littte different. Carrey's newest...
