Cart Allen still hasn’t gotten over his divorce eventhough it happened years ago. He doesn’t want to go out, doesn’t spend a lot of time with his friends, doesn’t spend much effort in his job and all in all his life is actually pretty pathetic.
Then one day he meets an old friend again who invites him to attend a conference of “Yes Men”. Although he’s not interested at first, he does decide to go and once there he gets overwhelmed by the atmosphere that he signs a covenant: as of now he has to say “yes” to everything and start living his life. The effects of change on his life are immediate…
Sound and Vision:
We get good image and sound quality without compression errors but there’s little more to say. Everything is as you would expect from a blu-ray release of such a recent picture.
– Downtime on the set of Yes Man with Jim Carrey
– Jim Carrey extreme Yes Man
– Munchausen by Proxy Future Sounds
– 5 Videoclips of Munchausen by Proxy
– On the set with Danny Wallace, the original Yes Man
– Say Yes to Red Bull
– Party Central with Normal Stokes
All in all a nice bunch of extras that go nicely with the atmosphere of the movie but I would have liked to see some more information (or a documentary) on Danny Wallace who was the original Yes Man. Some of the things he experienced would no doubt have given plenty of stuff for a nice docu.
Yes Man is a romantic comedy with Jim Carrey doing a decent job without too much overacting. The storyline is nice to follow and this is a typical feelgood movie. The plot is pretty straight forward and you can pretty much guess what’s going to happen, but thanks to the decent acting performances this isn’t too bad.
The blu-ray comes with good image&sound quality and also has a number of fun extras but some more info on the real “Yes man” wouldn’t have hurt. The set tour with Danny Wallace is pretty boring to be honest.
