Formulaic standard with one interesting concept — 3 years ago
Let me qualify my favourable review with a statement: this is not a great movie, and often it’s not very good. I liked it because I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, including social anxiety, which is what the main character has, and I wanted to see how the story went when he started saying “Yes” to everything. It was interesting, even though the characters were not good or nice people most of the time, and were often selfish beyond comprehension. I took from it the activites of someone trying everything, and tried to ascertain the possible benefits thereof.
So if you’re looking for ideas about addressing your lack of social assertiveness, or you’re the type of person who doesn’t demand more of a film than the standard formulaic hollywood fare or perhaps anything with Jim Carrey in it, then this movie is for you.
