why you *really* should watch yesman

zooey deschanel. oh, and the costumes. and the insane laughter that's bound to happen during the first 5 minutes of the movie.

yesterday, i watched yesman for the first time, and i have to say that i loved it. it's a totally hilarious movie (jim carrey is great), but my favorite character by far was allison, played by zooey deschanel. and then there were the costumes. *sigh......*

do not read ahead if you want to see the movie and haven't yet, as there are some minor plot spoilers.

so, the first time we see zooey, she's on her scooter, being very safe and all with her helmet and her helmet is just so... so... like something a five-year-old would wear, except she can totally pull it off.

this was the only picture i could find of the first jogging scene, but as i was watching, this was exactly what i was thinking:
hmmm... very touching scene, blah blah blah. maybe i should get some ice cream... wait!! omigod, look at her outfit!! it's absolutely perfect. why can't i look like that when i run?!...

but seriously. i would love that outfit.

allison is also in a band, and comes out on stage in ensembles that could only be described as... interesting. still, of course, very cute.

and then, when allison and carl get on a plane to nebraska (or something like that), zooey wears this amazing navy coat with red piping that seems so prim and proper to me, but fun/playful at the same time.

so, overall impression of the movie? funny, good moral, ect. but the costumes were to die for. i would recommend it. :)

I have to completely agree.... the wardrobe rocked in Yes Man. I spent weeks gathering up my new jogging clothes entirely inspired by Zooey's in the movie. Love it, so quirky. Nice call on the movie :)

Just watched the movie and really enjoyed it. Didn't think I would, usualy not a Jim Carey fan, but think Zooey Deschanel is a riot. I love that Coat!
