If you decided to say 'Yes' to everything in life, would that make you a better person and enhance your life? Not exactly, but in the movie Yes Man, you could let others have a good laugh!

Following the lines of Liar Liar, Jim Carrey's latest comic flick is about a dreadfully morose guy who is inspired by a self-help guru to say 'Yes' to everything and see how it transforms his dull life into something wild and unpredictable.

But like we said before, though it doesn't exactly make him eternally blissful, at least it helps him be more positive in life. Obviously, the comedy arises or is expected to arise from those instances where Jim should have actually said 'No!' but instead, thanks to his new learning, goes ahead and says 'Yes'. The outcome is painful in some cases but always manages to tickle a certain percentage of the audience.

If you go expecting the usual from Jim Carrey funny faces, ridiculously silly sequences, and bizarre sounds then you won't be disappointed.

But if you expect something different, probably the subtle humour of The Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind or the innovative touch of The Truman Show or the insanity of The Mask, you are in for disappointment. Liar Liar has a philosophical side to it.
