Jim Carrey stars with Bradley Cooper, Zooey Deschanel and Molly Sims in the true story of a man who goes an entire year without uttering the word "no," a normal, everyday citizen who,with a single word, becomes amost extraordinary Yes Man. Freelance BBC radio producer Danny Wallace (Carrey--The Majestic) takes three simple words uttered by a stranger on a bus-"say yes more"-as a challenge and says "yes" to everything for a year. He says "yes" to pamphleteers on the street, the credit card offers stuffing his mailbox and solicitations on the Internet. He attends meetings with a group that believes aliens built the pyramids in Egypt, says "yes" to every invitation to go out on the town and furthers his career by saying "yes" in meetings with executives. And, yes, he does win $48,000, meet the world's only hypnotic do, earn a nursing degree and travel the globe.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this comedy will likely appeal to young Jim Carrey fans excited to see him back on familiar (i.e. non-dramatic) turf. Although it's not as crude as the "gross out" comedies that have been so popular recently, there is some iffy stuff -- including a scene in which an elderly woman offers to perform oral sex on the main character (his facial expressions are shown) and another in which his bare butt is visible. There's also plenty of swearing -- everything from "ass" to "f--k" -- and a lot of product placement.
