I just saw the movie today, Rhys was wonderful, just as I expected. I do think Norman and Murray must be related. When he did the "I've got an exclusive membership in Cosco" bit, I just about lost it!
For those thinking about going, it wasn't too bad. I wouldn't think of this so much as a Jim Carrey movie but an ensemble picture that he just happens to be in. His best parts were when he wasn't trying so hard. This movie really was saved by having an amazing group of people around him. Rhys, of course, Terrance Stamp was magnificently mad and then there was John Michael Higgins. He was just so wonderfully out on the edge of sanity. As much as I like Zooey, I think she was a bit flat here. She did have some bright moments with her band, Munchausen by Proxy. They were brilliant!
Glad you enjoyed it, TV. I'm also glad the movie uses the talented cast, as well as Jim Carrey. Usually they waste the supporting actors by giving them nothing of substance to do. I saw the Costco bit of Rhys' on HBO First Look, and I thought it was very funny.
John Michael Higgins - aaahhh! Anyone who's in Christopher Guest's stable of improv actors is a genius as far as I'm concerned, and the role he's given in Yes Man seems right up his alley.
The movie also did very well at the box office, so that's all good.
I'm looking forward to The Boat That Rocked - what a great story! I had never heard anything about it before.
