‘Yes Man’ Poster

The first teaser poster has been released for the new Jim Carrey comedy entitled Yes Man. We get the poster and synopsis thanks to our friends over at slashfilm:

“Carrey stars as Carl Allen, a man who signs up for a self-help program based on one simple principle: say yes to everything and anything. At first, unleashing the power of “yes” transforms Carl’s life in amazing and unexpected ways, but he soon discovers that opening up his life to endless possibilities can have its drawbacks.”  

Now personally I am a huge fan of Jim Carrey as an actor. I find him to be one of the few comedy actors who’s films or style hasn’t gotten old. I still find myself laughing at stuff like Dumb & Dumber, Liar Liar and The Mask, amongst many others. However it seems that his venture into all things serious with films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Truman Show has killed his comedic film career. Now I am not saying that it’s a bad thing that he tried something new, as in my opinion he is fantastic in those mentioned films, but it’s a shame it pretty much ruined his comedy stuff.

Yes Man is co-written by the guy who wrote the screenplay for Carrey’s last comedy film Fun With Dick & Jane and in my opinion that lacked the elements which make a comedy actually funny. However this latest venture into the comedic world of film looks like it has potential to be what a comedy should be – funny. Yes Man is released in the US on 19th December 2008.
