Zooey Deschanel Says Yes, Man

This could be awesome or a total disaster.
Movies billed as "Jim Carrey movies" are pretty iffy, in my opinion. They could be totally hilarious, like Dumb and Dumber, or we could have another Ace Ventura series on our hands. His next comedic project, Yes Man, however, just got a little more promising with the addition of Zooey Deschanel to the cast.

What's it about?
According to Hollywood Reporter, the movie is based on British author Danny Wallace's memoir and "follows a man (Carrey) who decides to change his life by saying yes to everything that comes his way, leading him on a series of unexpected comedic adventures that turn his life upside down. Deschanel plays the romantic female lead, a woman Carrey meets on his journeys."

Director: Peyton Reed
Reed's resume is kind of all over the place: He's directed Bring it On and The Break-Up, as well as a couple episodes of Mr. Show and The Weird Al Show. Still, kudos to him for casting Zooey who, though she seems like an odd choice for the love interest of a Jim Carrey role, I can't wait to see do her quirky-funny thing on the big screen again.

Everyone should absolutely check out the book it's based on by Danny Wallace - it's *so* funny, I cannot recommend it highly enough. I saw him give a reading of it as well, and he was so lovely in person. They'd better not mess up the movie or they'll have me to deal with!!

I actually think this sounds like it could be good and not the typical Jim Carrey slapstick/silly comedy.

Zooey is my girl, so I'll have to see the movie. Regardless of how much I dislike Jim Carrey movies. Dumb and Dumber included.

Huh. I agree that this could go either way. Coincidentally, I just posted a review of "The Break-Up," which sucked balls, although I don't think it was Peyton Reed's fault. And I loved "Bring it On."
