    Yes-Man?

    I was just wondering if anyone was planning on checking this movie out at all during this holiday season? Looks funny and I have been a fan of his since In Living Color or whatever that show was.

    So who is going to see it?


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    I'm a mark for Carrey, so I'll definitely see it.

    Dude needs to stick to funny, that's for sure.



    What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching"?

    Have you seen The Majestic?

    Definitely one of his better films.

    Yeah, it is. And I won't rag on most of his other serious stuff, either.

    But I'm a strong believer that it's a lot harder to find a great comedic lead than a great dramatic lead...and that he should embrace the former.

    Ah, I'll agree with you there.

    However I think it's even harder to find a good comedic writer than a good dramatic writer.

    Anyone can put together shtick (which this seems to be, I hope it isn't)

    Agreed as well.

    I doubt it'll be anything too special, but I'm excited to see him get back into the comedy game.

    Yeah, I was going to say it seems eerily similar to Liar Liar.

    Once Bitten is by far the pinnacle of his career.

    The Number 23 was a decent flick. Not really a horror more of a mystery. I though Carey did a good job in it.
