Watch this if you liked: "Bruce Almighty", "Anger Management"

What will you do if your lonely old lady neighbour wants to relieve you sexually? Yes baby, yes!

Award-winning actor Jim Carrey plays the very negative Carl, who at first constantly says "No" to anything and everything, even to his best friend's engagement party. So in these times of pessimism, the film is a good watch for those deprived souls who reject requests or opportunities. Let it be an inspiration for the audience to embrace and experience something new and exciting with just one word - "Yes".

Jim Carrey gave a great performance being the eccentric guy we all know and love when he says "Yes" to everything that comes his way and takes it in stride. Anyway, Terence Stamp who plays Terrence Bundley is the man behind all those self-help seminars and almost comes across as Jesus, saviour for their lost souls. The character in which will get the most laughs out of you aside from Carl is his boss, Norman. Apart from him organising all sorts of costume parties (including a Harry Potter one), he is a playful man who seems to want to be really close with Carl.

The song 'Jumper' by Third Eye Blind is combined beautifully with a particular scene in the film. It's that creative touch that makes this film a joy to watch. By the way, Jim Carrey had to learn some Korean to make it through his Korean lines. Not a bad attempt, but maybe his lack of mastering the tone of the language is supposed to be funny. Either way, it was interesting seeing him converse in a foreign language.

For those people who plan to catch the movie in Malaysian cinemas, heads up - the ending of the film is censored, which might leave you very confused. So here's a hint - everyone is naked.

In the end, if you'd asked me whether I'd watch this movie again, I would say "No". Guess the "Yes Is The New No" seminar didn't so work well with me as this is the kind of film that is good enough to watch just once.
