Fitfully funny comedy in which a bored bank employee (Jim Carrey) attends a seminar run by a self-help guru (a comically intimidating Terence Stamp) and vows to say yes to every invitation or suggestion, leading to romance with a quirky singer (Zooey Deschanel), a renewed relationship with his best friend (Bradley Cooper) and greater respect from his nerdy boss (Rhys Darby, spot-on). Principally a vehicle for Carrey's facial and physical antics, director Peyton Reed's adaptation of Danny Wallace's best-selling memoir salutes openness to life and adventure and satirizes superstition, but also features considerable sexual humor, including a distasteful subplot involving Carrey's elderly but randy neighbor (Fionnula Flanagan). Nongrapic, nonmarital sexual activity, brief rear nudity, some sexual humor, one use of the F-word, much crude language and a few profanities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III—adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
