Yes Man Teaser Trailer

Just say yes… A few days ago we brought you the first official poster for Jim Carrey's next comedy, Yes Man. As Alex rightly pointed out, it smacks of Liar Liar in an oh-so-obvious way - instead of having to tell the truth all the time, Carrey plays a guy that always says yes. Same difference. Today comes the first trailer for the film, and I can't say I'm too excited. While Liar Liar holds an enviable 79% on Rotten Tomatoes, I don't think we can expect the same from Yes Man. As you'll see in the clip, the prospect of saying yes to anything can create some interesting scenarios. But if the trailer is any indication, the film looks like a bunch of discrete, wishfully funny sequences that probably adds up short in the end.

What Yes Man does seem to have going for it is the supporting cast, most notably Terrence Stamp. This guy is everywhere nowadays, recently appearing in Get Smart and Wanted. Carrey "kneels before Zod", who appears to be the leader of a self-help group, wherein the say-yes malady comes into play. All told, Yes Man looks like an expected Carrey vehicle. He'll have his funny moments, facial ticks and quirky sequences, but it's doubtful the film will carry as much energy as the poster implies. Are you at all excited?

Watch the first teaser trailer for Yes Man:

Yes Man is directed by Peyton Reed, of Bring It On, Down with Love, and The Break-Up previously. The script was written by actor Jarrad Paul ("Living with Fran"), newcomer Andrew Mogel, and fellow director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall). The film is based on the book of the same name written by Danny Wallace. Yes Man arrives in theaters everywhere on December 19th. The poster is featured below.

Looks pretty formulaic and derivative, but I'm not going to deny chuckling at the leaflet that says "YES! is the new NO!"

Looks funny, I like the supporting cast. Jim Carrey can generally make anything funny. Can't wait to see it.

I don't like Jim Carrey, (except in ESotSM of course) but this actually looks kind of funny.

Classic Jim Carrey, something that will be genuinely funny, but really nothing special yet, just gonna have't to wait till release. Pretty sure that anti-drug promo was funny as hell, these weed commericals are stupid!

ok I love Jim Carrey and I am glad to see another comedy of his coming out...I think it looks like it will be a great story and yeah not exactly original from Liar Liar but I dont care Jim Carrey is one of the funniest comedians ever...

Maxx on Jul 22, 2008

15

Is this going to be a Liar Liar clone? Yes, but Jim Carey definitely needs this to be a success if he wants to be taken seriously as a comedian ever again.

David on Jul 22, 2008

Okay, it's obvious why everyone say this is another liar liar... But did anyone else actually watch the trailer? It looked nothing like it! I end up loving everything Jim Carrey does so.. Yes man..

Blake B on Jul 22, 2008

what the hell has happened to terence stamp? he's done hardly anything noteworthy of film till this year and he's got three (get smart, wanted, yes man)? don't get me wrong he's creepy as sin but he's done well in all his roles so far if you were from control, you'd already be dead

Haha, nice to see Murray from Flight of the Conchords in a movie šŸ˜€ Seems like a pretty basic Jim Carrey movie. Nothing really new or anything.. Oh well ill probably still go see it.. or not!

Max on Jul 23, 2008

That guy in the bar looks like he's gonna knock out Jim. Girl's boyfriend?

It looks nice ... the only problem I have is Zooey Deschanel !!! She is so much ... NOT for comedy movies šŸ™‚ ...

That looked more amusing than I expected. I can tell because I actually laughed.

This is where Jim Carrey thrives! I'm so glad he's doing comedy again. I hope this is a big hit for him! šŸ™‚

Ya know, I never saw Liar, Liar. And that's the truth. This looks pretty funny though, and possibly might introduce some philosophies of positivity into peoples lives. I know it's unlikely but it doesn't hurt to hope. šŸ™‚

kevjohn on Jul 23, 2008

27

Wait! Maybe the positivity is starting to sink in already. Look at all the smiley faces on this page. šŸ™‚

Bucket List meets Liar Liar... PASS!

Carrey is great. Given a nice script such as Truman Show, The Mask Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, he can really make wonders but I think the big problem is that many directors still do not regard him as an actor and more of SNL material which I think is wrong. So he has to stick to the B scripts. Not saying this wont be good though.

So I guess this saying YES to everything explains The Number 23....

You know I think Carey got really jaded after no one payed him real credit for his portrayal of Andy in man on the moon and ever since than he has been on this sorta mission to do his own thing. Occassionally he returns to his roots in comedy and thats were everyone fell in love with him. I think he is a super talented guy and a gifted actor,this film looks good and there really is no hints of his wacky humor its more of a straight comedic role. It looks loke a maturer Jim Carey comedy with thought out dialouge rather than improvisation till you get that outrageousness that he's really known for. Good on ya mate!

Dave V. on Jul 23, 2008

I can't remember the name of the movie where the lead decides he's going to do everything on his list; but that sounds a lot like this as well. Which really sounds a whole lot like My Name Is Earl, come to think of it. Anyways, I'm not a huge Carrey fan, but this looks like it'll be worth at least a rent.

dRailer on Jul 23, 2008

30 stole my comment! Anyway, Carrey is hilarious and a Christmas release, you KNOW this will be big.

Jim Carrey is one of those old actors like Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler. Having said that, Jim Carrey stands out from these people mainly because, oh that's right, he's still funny. I'll totally see it. I'll support him until he retires.

Clamson on Jul 24, 2008

This dude is getting so old, retire man. This trailer sucked big time!!!

Enola on Jul 24, 2008

I haven't cared for Carrey in a while because he hasn't made anything great since dumb and dumber (in my opinion) but that did make me laugh.

vu on Jul 24, 2008

39

I just think he should stick to comedy because I can't take him seriously as a serious actor. I think he takes himself too seriously.(but that's just me)

vu on Jul 24, 2008

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind...the most underated film! Jim Carrey has made nothing good since...reason being...it was tooooooooo good for him to ever make a movie as good or better ever again!

Nick on Jul 24, 2008

Dead VU, Could you please say the word serious one more time I don't believe you said it enough in your comment. You're awesome! -Nick

Nick on Jul 24, 2008

Dead vu? Can you spell correctly? Seriously. šŸ˜‰

Touche...Seriously

The vast majority of you are morons. Jim Carrey is without a doubt the best and most versitile actor of the current generation. He has time and time again proven to be a genius when it comes to portraying any type of character. Every movie that he has ever been in is a masterpiece and this one is going to be no exception. It is going to be nothing like Liar Liar and will as I have already stated be a phenominal movie. Also, most of you really have no business talking about Jim Carrey's film credits because I doubt the vast majority have even seen half of the movies that he has been in, so piss off and enjoy a freaking amazing movie.

I LOVE Zooey Deschanel! The Movie looks funny, but I don't think I'm going to go to it for the story. Maybe just some light hearted fun... as it looks from that trailer.
