Yes Man | Ratings & Reviews

"Yes Man is about leaving one’s comfort zone, trying new experiences and enjoying the untapped possibilities of life. It’s puzzling, then, that the movie doesn’t practice what it preaches. How frustrating that it remains content to follow such a conventional route."

Flicks, Andrew HedleyFlicks

"Genial but slim, picture is certainly a light-hearted alternative to weighty year-end awards bait, but the conceit isn't realized fully enough."


"Yes Man rarely rises to genuine hilarity. It takes no risks, finds no inspiration and settles, like its hero, into a dull, noncommittal middle ground. Should you see this movie? Maybe. Whatever. I don't care."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

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

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"If you're thinking "yuck," you're right. I added the extra star for Zooey Deschanel, who is so delicious as his honey that you want not to say no to Yes Man."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Jim Carrey works the premise for all it's worth, but it doesn't allow him to bust loose and fly."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

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

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It's charming enough with some nice comedy touches, but the initially intriguing premise is soon railroaded out of sight by its desire to conform to a tried-and-tested cinematic formula."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"It exists as a hollow, plastic, and utterly disposable example of Hollywood doing what Hollywood does best: putting bums on seats, making money, and calculating the possibilities of a sequel."

Dominion PostDominion Post

"It won't set the world on fire and doesn't even intend to, but it will certainly keep you out of trouble for a couple of hours."
