Yes Man

Yes Man (2008)

Director: Peyton Reed
Writer: Nicholas Stoller, Jarrad Paul
Starring: Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel, Rhys Darby

bank loan guy who is a miserable shut in, goes to a self-help lecture about "saying yes!" suddenly his life changes!
This film's most interesting, entertaining scene occurs between approximately 15:00 and 19:00.  Because it has Terence Stamp in it.

The Woman
watching this travesty called a comedy made me finalize in my brain old jim carrey shtick is not funny. fire marshal bill is 20 something years old. it's time to move on now. this seemed like a desperate attempt to relive the golden jim carrey years from jim carrey. not only was it not funny, it was kind of revolting to me. jim's looking a little "long in the tooth" as my mother said and he's dating zooey deschanel who is younger than i am. it kind of makes me shudder while i type it. this was typical hollywood machine plot A. you knew exactly what was going to happen details and all in the first, say, 5 minutes. (i might be a little generous with that allotment of time too). not funny, just sad. did he really need a paycheck that badly? he's capable of so much more.....i think.
