Si Señor! Yes Man Trailer Debut


The first full-length trailer for the zany Jim Carrey vehicle Yes Man has arrived, promising exactly the kind of lunacy you would expect from a zany Jim Carrey vehicle.

Carrey stars as Carl Allen, an office drone who says ‘no’ to anyone and anything. His life is turned around after a self-help seminar inspires him to say ‘yes’ to every opportunity – leading to bungee jumps, guitar lessons and a mail-order bride.

The film is based on the true story of Scottish comedian Danny Wallace, although with some obvious cinematic embellishments.

Reactions to the trailer have been fairly negative, but I have to say, I’m kind of psyched to see the film.

I’m a big fan of Carrey’s work, even though all sensible reasoning tells me I shouldn’t. I even liked Bruce Almighty and Fun With Dick and Jane, which I understand reduces my credibility points significantly.

It’s also nice to see Zooey Deschanel in a comedy after being hilariously miscast in The Happening. There is an argument of course that The Happening is in fact a comedy, which I will discuss in the near future.

So, check out the trailer and let us know what you think:

Yes Man, directed by Peyton Reed and written by Nicholas Stoller, opens January 1st, 2009.
