In honor of Jim Carrey completing the long awaited second installment of his forced behavior modification trilogy with Yes Man (the first being 1997’s Liar Liar), I’ve decided to put forth a few ideas for the final, closure-bringing film that should hit theaters towards the end of 2017. But, before we get to the possible plots, let’s do a little recap.

In Liar Liar, Carrey was a lawyer magically forced to tell the truth for 24 hours after his son made a birthday wish. The experience had him saying and doing things that put a major cramp in his scumball lawyer day, like admitting to farting in an elevator and pronouncing himself to be in contempt of court .  In Yes Man, Carrey is a perpetual naysayer challenged to say yes to every opportunity that comes his way for an entire year after attending a self-help seminar. As a result, Carrey drinks too much Red Bull, takes up guitar and Korean, and orders a Persian bride on the internet.

For the third film, I imagine Carrey will start out as some type of jerkhole and, through an outlandish set of circumstances, discover that his anti-social behavior has been holding him back from realizing true happiness.

On to the scenarios:

1) Carrey is a professional bull rider who obtains the majority of his food by hunting out of season with illegal firearms. While attending his regular Thursday night dog fight, Carrey accidentally starts an all-out brawl, during which a cursed dog collar slips around his neck. Transformed into a pitbull, Carrey must win a number of fights and find an owner who truly loves him before the end of seven dog years, or the transformation will be permanent. After enjoying the freedom of relieving himself in public and smelling strange women on the street, Carrey is taken in by a series of negligent owners before finally making a connection with a young  homeless boy. Following months of abuse, the boy’s unconditional love melts Carrey’s heart and lifts the spell. After changing back into a man, Carrey adopts the boy and they open a ranch for abandoned animals.

2) Carrey is a degenerate gambler who’s been barred from every casino, racetrack, and riverboat in the US. Unable to shake his habit, Carrey is forced to make bets with people he meets on the street. When an illegal immigrant wages that Carrey couldn’t handle working alongside a group of undocumented aliens for a month, Carrey sets out to prove him wrong and win the man’s life savings. After wreaking havoc on a construction site, a vegetable farm, a restaurant, and a hotel, Carrey discovers that the men and women he’s been working with have become the family he never had. But, when the month is up, he reverts to his old ways and runs off with his new friend’s life savings. After placing a winning bet on the Super Bowl with the only bookie who will still speak to him, Carrey is overcome with regret, returns all the money to the immigrant who helped him see the light, and uses his winnings to take the other workers on an extravagant shopping spree.

3) Carrey and archrival Adam Sandler enter an act-off to see who can make the most money at the box office over the course of three years. Alternating between comedies and dramas, the two former funnymen gross obscene amounts of cash without being involved in a single memorable scene during the filming of 18 awful movies. While attending the Sundance Film Festival, Carrey and Sandler find themselves stuck in the same ski lodge after a blizzard hits. When the other guests recognize them, Carrey and Sandler are forced to sit through a tedious, non-stop marathon of all the crap movies they’ve churned out over the last 36 months. Appalled by what they see, Carrey and Sandler agree to put aside their differences and collaborate on the most hilarious, heart-wrenching dramedy the world has ever endured.

I’m leaning towards number two, but I’m pretty sure that during rewrites the story would be changed so that Carrey merely has to accept every bet he’s offered over the course of six months. So, rather than getting stuck in wet concrete and falling asleep in an industrial clothes dryer while working with the immigrants, Carrey would just travel around the country/world accepting bets to enter a hot pepper eating contest, walk on all fours for a week, join a nudist colony, compete in a big wave surf competition, etc. In the end, Carrey would stop gambling, but he probably wouldn’t have as many new foreign friends.

While the final film in the forced behavior modification trilogy is still in the pre-development stages, Yes Man is here today. Highlights of the Yes Man trailer include: 1) Carrey’s boss welcoming him to a party with, “We are Sparta!” while dressed like Gerard Butler from 300 (with glasses). 2) Carrey wrapping scotch tape around his head. 3) John Michael Higgins rubbing Carrey’s failure in his face by telling him he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro.  4). Terence Stamp hitting Carrey in the head with a microphone to make him say yes for the first time.  And, 5) Carrey snorting hot sauce during a night out drinking with Danny Masterson and Bradley Cooper. My favorite part of the trailer is when Carrey accepts a ride on the back of Zooey Deschanel’s scooter and they are both nearly killed in traffic. Yes Man opens December 19, 2008.

    I, too, employ a pit-bull who is the most warm animal I have ever owned. Soon, a fresh dog breed will come together for that media to blast, as they have completed rotties and dobies in earlier many years. Unfortunate that media sensationalism breeds much inaccurate facts.
