Yes Man - the Story begins to unwind
09 Jan 2008
By Nicola West (Editor/Writer (UK))
As a big Danny Wallace fan I was interested to see how the movie would differ from the book. He had assured me the essence of the book was still intact but how would an essentially British tale transfer to an American setting? Gone is Danny, BBC producer, writer, recently dumped and depressed, enter Carl Allen, bored insurance Clerk on the hamster wheel of life. Gone is the weird bloke on the bus who tells Danny to 'Say Yes More', enter a self help course teaching folk to say yes to every opportunity.
Gone are Danny's love interests. Hanne and Lizzie have been replaced by actress 'Renee Aniston' (Zooey Deschanel) who Carl can't say no to. Falling for her in a big way he see's glimpses of the old 'Carl' but an arguement finds Carl missing her and questioning the teachings of 'Yes'.
The twist finds the teachings are an elaborate hoax, one that Carl fell for but equally one that helped him rediscover himself and he gets back together with Renee a changed man. Danny's hoax was set up by his ex girlfriend Hanne and the book is less about a broad message concentrating more on Danny's experiences. Overall though i agree with Danny, the essence of "Yes Man" is there.
Roll on December 19th.

What is Blu-ray:
The name Blu-ray Disc is derived from the blue-violet laser used to read and write this type of disc. Blu-ray Disc can store 25 GB on each layer, as opposed to a DVD's 4.7 GB.
Blu-ray Disc is currently in a format war with rival format HD DVD. Blu-ray Disc is supported by six of the eight major movie studios (Disney, Fox, Lionsgate, MGM, Sony and Warner), which have announced that they will release movies in the Blu-ray Disc format. Universal Studios and Paramount are the only movie studios which have chosen to support the competing HD-DVD format exclusively for now.
