Yes Man – 87/100

I figured that I should write my own little review of a movie that I saw today. It was, overall, quite an entertaining movie. I was kept laughing through the majority of the film, and though that’s not the most difficult thing to make me do, it always makes a movie more entertaining.

Aside from a few awkward moments (which I don’t suggest young children see), the movie was pretty clean, which is always a bonus. It’s just that those two scenes really are awkward. It wouldn’t have hurt them to completely cut them out… But doesn’t that just seem to be the trend nowadays?

But the glorious part is that it has a surprisingly inspiring plot. I felt like becoming a “Yes Man” myself when it was over. It really is rather encouraging and does a good job motivating one to act – to do things that we normally wouldn’t, whether it be because they seem weird, awkward, stupid, or absolutely ridiculous.

Anyway, I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. Especially the part with the (I assume) Australian boss that sincerely believes that Costco Memberships are incredibly exclusive and difficult to obtain.

So, the point is, I gave the movie 87/100. Good stuff, though I would’ve preferred that it not have the little awkward parts. Without those, it would’ve acheived a higher ranking, and I would have absolutely no reservations in recommending the movie to anyone.

  1. Where did you feel there were two awkward parts? I just know him and his elderly neighbor scene was awkward. It was not awkward enough for me to want them to cut it out. I found it rather funny. I can’t think of another scene that was awkward. I’d like for you to point it out so I could focus on it the next time I see it.

    • To tell the truth, I can’t exactly remember. However, I think that it may have been simply the scene when he was riding the motorcycle with the hospital gown. While I don’t think that it was incredibly awkward, I was thinking of what some people (like my mother, for example), would have thought of the scene.
