Ok lets play the yes/no game, you know, the one where you cant say yes or no...........ok GO!!..........so yesterday....Dammit!!
So as a dude who loves a bit of Jim Carrey (sounds like Im picking him as a side order for dinner) it was a natural choice for me to see this film. Plus for the first time in aaaaages I can say I read the book first. Now I know its like tradition for people who have read a book and seen a film adaption of that book to rip the film to shreds....just look at 'I am Legend'...but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. As it is not a direct book to script transition it opened itself up for a lot of criticizm and abuse but it actually allowed the vision of the book to shine through this average Hollywood formula. I love the concept of this story, it really has a addictive presence about it....so much so that I shouted YES!! rather rudely to the dude asking if I wanted jalapenos with my nachos (sorry about that)
Jim Carrey performs as the classic Jim we love from 'Ace Venturer' or 'Liar Liar'. We can now forgive him for 'The number 23' (I'll just consider that his mid-life crisis....bless him).
It has to be said though that Mr. Elastic is starting to look his age :( and we all know how upset I get when this happens (just look at my 'The Bucket List' review)
I highly recommend this film to all Jim Carrey fans, it really is a return to form film. Also read Danny Wallace's 'Yes Man' it'll be one of the funniest books you'll read for a while
