04.28.10DVR Jim Carrey plays a pessimistic guy supposedly put under a trance to say yes to everything. Very much in the vein of Liar Liar, this movie is extremely mediocre, however ocymoronic that may be. Which is kind of a shame because most of the time I was actually liking it. Zooey Deschanel and Rhys Darby helped a lot but mostly this movie - ridiculous "covenant" aside - is kind of a good motivator. It's definitely always easier to not do something but in the long run you end up closing your life off. It's definitely something I struggle with since I feel naturally inclined to be alone and it was a consciouss decision I made when I moved to Austin. Subsequently, there's a very definite feeling of "living your life" that you don't get if you play it safe. This movie touches on all that, which connected with me. It's just a shame that it had to be framed in a stereotypical Jim Carrey "safe" comedy.
