No one ever likes to hear that Netflix is losing movies when a new month arrives, but at least you can always count on the platform to drop a smorgasbord of fresh content to enjoy on the same day. November is filled to the brim with tons of great titles, and many of them are launching today. For instance, we’ve got hit comedies like Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Easy A, 70s classic A Clockwork Orange, and heist flick Ocean’s Eleven. Needless to say, you’re already all set for a while.
Luckily, that’s not all Netflix has planned for you on November 1st. Among many other great films that arrived today to kick off the month is an underrated Jim Carrey comedy to add to his ever-growing list of movies that are already on the service and have been keeping subscribers laughing for a while now.
That hilarious new release is Yes Man, a 2008 romantic comedy about a man who feels perpetually defeated by life and has all but given up on being social or doing anything that truly brings him joy. But when he’s convinced to attend a self-help seminar about the power of saying yes, he adopts a new life goal of saying yes to everything that comes his way. Of course, while this brings plenty of wonderful revelations for him, he quickly finds that it can have some downsides, too.
If you enjoyed Carrey’s earlier work in films like Liar Liar or Me, Myself, & Irene, you’ll find that Yes Man feels like a return to to that classic brand of comedy for which the actor has been so well respected. It may have only scored an underwhelming 46% on Rotten Tomatoes, but rest assured there are plenty of laughs to be had here and fans of the talented Hollywood legend will surely find a lot to like about it.
