‘Yes Man’ is a 2008 comedy film starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel that revolves around Carl Allen (Carrey), who has closed himself off to any new experiences by constantly saying “No.” He leads a dull life without any trace of excitement. When he realizes the extent of stagnation his life has reached, Carl goes to attend a seminar that challenges people to say “Yes” to anything and everything for a year. So that’s what Carl starts doing – he says “Yes” to things he previously said “No” to.

That practice leads to some unexpected results at work (he gets a promotion) and outside (new romance blossoms). Hilarity ensues, and Carl has some amazing experiences before he starts to realize that always saying “Yes” can lead to some very problematic situations as well. If you’re wondering where ‘Yes Man’ was filmed, we’ve got the answers that you’re looking for!
