IMDb Plot Synopsis: Carl Allen is at a standstill. No future... Until the day he enrolls into a personal development program based on a very simple idea: say yes to everything! Carl discovers with amazement the magical power of "Yes", and sees his professional and romantic life turned upside down overnight: an unexpected promotion and a new girlfriend. But he'll soon discover that better can be good's enemy, and that all opportunities shouldn't be taken.

A Quick Review: I may have only reviewed this film 18 months ago but my feelings for it haven’t changed much! If anything I like it even better over time as I am still picking up on new comedic nuances from the delightful Jim Carrey. He just doesn’t get old. So while this may not be his best work (an example of which has to be Bruce Almighty!) it is still a great deal of fun and actually not only gives that sense of feel-good that you get from a great comedy but this is also a great motivator as it is full of inspiration on how to live life. We should definitely all say ‘Yes’ more, it’s a lot more fun!

Score: 7.5/10
