Review of Yes Man Starring Zooey Deschanel

shannoninsf's Summer Netflix Challenge: Zooey D in Yes Man

BuzzSugar Community user shannoninsf submitted the following post to the Summer Netflix Challenge group.

So I've decided to join the Netflix challenge and use it as an excuse to watch the movies of Zooey Deschanel that I've never seen. I'm a pretty big fangirl, and totally obsessed with (500) Days of Summer, but I haven't seen a lot of her work. To kick off my viewing, I chose Yes Man, her comedy with Jim Carrey.

Zooey plays Allison, the live wire that Carrey's character starts dating when he takes a seminar to say "yes" to everything. Even though she's essentially playing the "manic pixie dream girl" (Google it if you've never heard the term), I always buy Zooey as the free spirit — and I love that she gets to sing too (even if it's her sweet voice over some hilariously bad lyrics). Ultimately, I kind of loved this movie — it's so funny without Jim Carrey going completely over the top, and I actually think they make a great onscreen couple, though it did strike me as weird at first.

Want to participate in the Summer Netflix Challenge? Just join my group, pick a theme, and get watching!
