I saw and enjoyed the movie The Yes Man, though I think I would have liked it better if it had starred Jack Black, as origially planned, rather than Jim Carrey. I saw in the credits that it was based on a book. I find that if I like a book, I might or might not like a movie based on it, but if I like a movie that's based on a book, I pretty much always like the book, too (OTOH, novelizations of movies always suck), so I read the book The Yes Man. Turns out it claims to be a true story, though I'm sure the author embellished the truth quite a lot. The story is about what happens when the author decides he will say yes to any suggestion anyone makes, to see where it leads him. It's basically a silly romantic comedy, but it's also sort of inspiring. While I'm not about to decide to say yes to everything, it does leave me feeling I should try saying yes more often.
