Movies Can Change Your Life?

Philip and I watched Yes Man recently. While I don't think it will go on my list of all-time favorite movies, I found the premise incredibly powerful.

Jim Carrey stars a Carl, a lonely divorce who has alienated those around him. He falls in with a cheesy self-help program and begins to say yes to every opportunity before him. Before you know it, his life has changed.

While predictable, the movie does make you look at your life and wonder how your attitude shapes events around you. I think it may even make me say yes to more of the opportunities that come my way!

Great!! I put this on my blockbuster list. I am not much of a comedy watcher, you can see my favs at the bottom of my blog...but one of my favorite comedies is Liar Liar.

I love the premise and wish I would do it more often LOL. I haven't seen the movie, but my daughter read the book before the movie came out and then saw the movie. She says the book is better.

Have a beautiful day!

Thanks, Nina Estrella & Justine, for checking out my blog. Nina - It's not the greatest movie in the world, but I did like the premise. Hope you enjoy it if you see it!
