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.
