Jim Carrey has made some interesting movies in recent years, and by "interesting" I mean, "I'm not jumping out of my seat to see them" (Horton Hears a Who is the exception, of course). But lately he's been signing up for projects that seem like better, smarter choices for an actor of his talent, including Yes Man.
In the teaser trailer we are introduced to Carrey's character as a man who is a bit of a nay-sayer, constantly dismissing and rejecting the opportunities that come his way. But then he learns how to say "yes," and he is suddenly free to live life to its fullest, pulling the hilarious Zooey Deschanel along with him. This is basically the point at which Carrey is given license to go a little nuts and it's good to see.
Other things making this movie highly desirable include cast members Bradley Cooper and Danny Masterson.
You'll be able to see Yes Man in theaters Dec. 19 and to check out the teaser (which is super long, for a teaser!), read more.
