Quantum Of Solace


Title : Quantum Of Solace
Genres: Action/Adventure, Thriller, Adaptation and Sequel
Release Date: November 14th, 2008 (wide)
Distributors: Sony Pictures Releasing
U.S. Box Office: $168,368,427
Starring: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Giancarlo Giannini, Jesper Christensen, Mathieu Amalric
Directed by: Marc Forster

Synopsis :
The film continues immediately after the events of Casino Royale with Bond driving from Lake Garda to Siena, Italy. With the captured Mr. White in the luggage compartment of his car, Bond is attacked by chasing henchmen. After evading his pursuers, Bond and M interrogate White regarding his organisation, Quantum. M's bodyguard, Mitchell, is revealed as a traitor, attacking M and allowing White to escape; Bond chases Mitchell across Siena and kills him. Following a forensic investigation into Mitchell's apartment, Bond heads to Haiti to track down and kill Mitchell's contact. Bond learns that henchman Slate was sent to kill Camille Montes at the behest of her lover, Dominic Greene, the chairman of an ecological organization called Greene Planet. While observing her meeting with Greene, Bond learns that Greene is helping the Bolivian general Medrano – who murdered Camille's family – overthrow his government in exchange for a seemingly barren piece of desert.

Greene has Camille escorted away on Medrano's boat to "sweeten" their deal, but Bond rescues her. Bond then follows Greene to a private jet, which flies him to a performance of Tosca at Lake Constance, Austria. Bond infiltrates Quantum's meeting at the opera, and a gunfight ensues in a restaurant. A bodyguard of Guy Haines, an advisor to the British Prime Minister, is accidentally killed, and M has Bond's passports and credit cards revoked. Bond travels to Italy to reunite with his old ally René Mathis, whom he convinces to accompany him to La Paz. They are greeted by Strawberry Fields, an MI6 field operative from the British Consulate, who demands that Bond return to the UK on the next available flight. Bond disobeys and seduces her in their hotel suite.

Bond meets Camille again at a fund-raiser being held by Greene, and they leave hastily together, but are pulled over by the Bolivian police. The police order Bond to open the luggage compartment of his vehicle, revealing a bloodied Mathis. As Bond lifts Mathis out of the vehicle, the policemen open fire and fatally wound Mathis. After Bond subdues the police and deposits Mathis' body in a waste container, Bond and Camille drive to Greene's intended land acquisition and survey the area in a Douglas DC-3 plane. They are intercepted and shot down by an Aermacchi SF.260 fighter and a Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter. They escape from the crippled plane by parachuting; landing in a sinkhole. While escaping the cave, Bond and Camille discover Quantum is blockading Bolivia's supply of fresh water, normally flowing in subterranean rivers, by damming it. The duo return to La Paz, where Bond meets M and learns Quantum murdered Fields by drowning her in crude oil. Believing that Bond has become a threat to both friend and foe, M orders him to disarm and end his activities in Bolivia, but he defies her and escapes.

Bond meets CIA agent Felix Leiter at a local bar, who discloses Greene and Medrano will meet at an eco-hotel in the Bolivian desert. After the meeting, Bond attacks and kills the departing Colonel of Police for betraying Mathis, and sets off a chain of explosions in the hotel when a hydrogen fuel tank is hit by an out of control vehicle. Camille kills Medrano, and Bond captures Greene. After interrogating him, he leaves Greene stranded in the middle of the desert with only a can of motor oil. Bond drives Camille to a train station, where they kiss before she departs.

Bond goes to Kazan, Russia, where he confronts Vesper Lynd's former lover, Yusef Kabira. Yusef is a member of Quantum who seduces high-ranking women with valuable connections, getting them to give up government assets as ransom for himself in fake kidnappings where he is supposedly held hostage. He is attempting to do the same with Canadian agent Corinne Veneau, even giving her the same kind of necklace he gave Vesper. Surprising them at Yusef's apartment, Bond tells Corinne about Vesper and advises her to alert the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. As Bond is leaving Yusef's apartment he is confronted by M, who is surprised that Bond did not kill Yusef, but rather left him alive for questioning. M reveals that Leiter has been promoted at the CIA to replace Beam, and that Greene was found in the desert, shot dead and with motor oil in his stomach. Bond doesn't volunteer any information on Greene, but tells M that she was right about Vesper. M then tells Bond that MI6 needs him and fully reinstates him as an agent. Bond walks off into the night telling M that he never left. As he leaves, he drops Vesper's necklace in the snow.

Doubt


Title : Doubt
Genres: Drama, Adaptation and Politics/Religion
Release Date: December 12th, 2008 (limited)
Distributors: Miramax Films
U.S. Box Office: $26,753,136
Starring: Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Viola Davis, Alice Drummond
Directed by: John Patrick Shanley

Synopsis :

Set in 1964 at a Catholic church in the Bronx, the film opens with Father Flynn (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) giving a sermon on the nature of doubt, noting that, like faith, it can be a unifying force. That evening, Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep), the strict headmistress of the attached school, discusses the sermon with her fellow Sisters of Charity of New York nuns. She asks if anyone has observed unusual behavior to give Father Flynn cause for preaching about doubt, and instructs them to keep their eyes open for any such behavior.

Sister James (Amy Adams), a young and naive teacher, observes the closeness between Father Flynn and Donald Miller, the school's only African American student and an altar boy. One day during class, Sister James receives a call in her class asking for Donald Miller to meet Father Flynn in the rectory. When he returns, Donald is distraught and Sister James notices the smell of alcohol on his breath. Later, while her students are learning a dance, she sees Father Flynn placing a white shirt in Donald's locker. On guard for unusual behavior, Sister James reveals her suspicions to Sister Aloysius.

Under the pretext of discussing problems with the school's Christmas play, Sisters Aloysius and James confront Father Flynn with their suspicions that his relationship with Donald may be inappropriate. Several times, Father Flynn asks them to leave the matter alone as a private issue between the boy and himself but Sister Aloysius persists. The priest relents, revealing that Donald had been caught drinking altar wine. He had agreed to protect the student and allow him to remain an altar boy provided that no one else discovered his transgression. Having now been forced to reveal the truth, Father Flynn advises the nuns that he is disappointed in the way they handled this and that he will need to dismiss Donald as an altar boy.

Initially, Sister James is relieved and convinced of Father Flynn's innocence, but Sister Aloysius' belief that he has behaved inappropriately with the boy is unshakeable. Sister James later confronts Father Flynn about the shirt she saw him leaving in Donald's locker, having not revealed this detail to Sister Aloysius. They discuss his relationship with the boy and Sister James' doubts are assuaged.

Sister Aloysius sends for Donald Miller's mother to reveal her suspicions. Mrs. Miller (Viola Davis) surprises Sister Aloysius by stating that she should not pursue the matter further and that he only has to last until the end of the school year before he goes on to attend high school. Mrs. Miller believes her son to be gay. To protect him from an abusive father, she asks that the matter be dropped.

Despite having no evidence and no support from Donald's mother, Sister Aloysius demands that Father Flynn tell the truth or she will go to his superiors. Father Flynn repeats that there is no illicit relationship, but Sister Aloysius says she knows that he has a history of problems, having moved to three different parishes in five years. She mentions contacting a nun at one of Father Flynn's prior churches who corroborated her suspicions. Father Flynn is furious that she has gone outside the chain of command by contacting a nun rather than the church's priest. Sister Aloysius demands that he resign. Unable to stand up to her willingness to destroy his character, he relents.

Following his final sermon, the nuns sit together in the church garden. Sister Aloysius tells Sister James that although Father Flynn has left, he has been given a more prestigious parish with its parochial school, in effect a promotion. She goes on to reveal that she lied about speaking to a nun at Father Flynn's former church. Repeating a line from earlier in the film that "In the pursuit of wrongdoing, one steps away from God," she adds that there is also a price. Aloysius breaks down in tears and says to Sister James, "I have such doubts."

IP Man


Title : IP Man
Genres: Action, Martial Art/Foreign, Drama and Biopic
Release Date: 18 December 2008
Distributors: Mandarin Films Distribution Co. Ltd.
Starring: Donnie Yen, Simon Yam
Directed by: Wilson Yip
Synopsis :

Ip Man is adapted from the life story of Ip Man, the grandmaster of the Wing Chun style of kung fu and sifu of legendary kung fu superstar Bruce Lee. This film is the first important record of the master's life.

In the 1930s, Foshan thrives as the hub of Chinese wushu, with various sects actively recruiting disciples. They often compete against each other to prove their strengths. While Ip Man is an accomplished martial artist, he is unassuming and keeps a low-profile, and doesn't run any martial arts school, nor accept students. He only stays at home, quietly sparring with his compatriots in friendly competitions, swapping pointers with each other.

One day, Ip Man (Donnie Yen) is challenged by Master Liao (Chen Zhi Hui), who just set up a wushu school, in a closed match. The brother of Ip's teahouse owner friend, Sha Da Yuan(Wong You-Nam), who witnessed the entire fight while trying to retrieve his kite from a tree on the side of Ip Man's house, tells everyone about Master Liao losing.

Seeing it as a public humiliation, Master Liao gets into disputes with Sha, and forces the local officer Inspector Li Zhao to arrive. He mocks them by stating that in their era, duels are meant to be fought with guns, but Ip Man proves him wrong by forcing the cylinder of his gun out with a single finger and manages to tame things down.

Henchmen of Jin Shan Zhao (Fan Siu-Wong) are going around challenging various wushu schools in Foshan. The teahouse owner and Martial Arts Zealot Lin (Xing Yu) informs Ip Man, who was however, unable to go out and aid the masters because he respected his wife, Wing Cheng (Lynn Hung), who dislikes her husband fighting. Eventually, Jin Shan Zhao finds Ip's residence and challenged him. Ip dispenses him with ease using four Wing Chun Forms: fist, footwork, blade and cudgel. Afterwards, the people of Foshan revered him greatly.

Following Japanese invasion in 1937, everyone's life is adversely affected. Ip's property is confiscated and his family is forced to live in a decrepit house. Being one with strong pride, Ip refuses charity from his wealthy friend Zhou Qing Quan (Simon Yam), owner of a cotton mill, opting instead to work as a coolie at a coal mine to sustain his family, which turns out to be the workplace for several former Wushu diciples and masters. At the mine, he reunites with Lin, who tells him that his brother Sha is missing.

Later, General Miura (Hiroyuki Ikeuchi), together with his troops, arrives. As a fanatical practitioner in martial arts himself, he sets up an arena for the former Wushu fighters to fight against Japanese judo practitioners, offering rice as a reward. However, to another high-ranking Japanese officer Sato's (Shibuya Tenma) mind, they cannot afford to lose, they must preserve Japanese superiority and dignity. Li Zhao has become an interpretor for the Japanese.

Eagerly taking up the challenge, Lin makes use of the opportunity to demean the Japanese (loosing a small metal box at the same time, which he told Ip Man to find). Miura decided to fight himself, and demanded three of the Chinese to fight him, including Lin. The two other men declared defeat, but Lin continued fighting and was brutally beaten to death.

The following day, Ip Man notices Lin's absence, and decides to fight in the arena for rice. He witnesses the death of former Master Liao when officer Sato shoots him, due to the fact that he took the rice even after losing to three of the fighters. Li also tells Ip Man that his friend Lin is dead. Enraged, Ip Man demanded to be faced by 10 fighters, which he dispatches swiftly, much to the interest of General Miura.

Later, it is revealed that Jin Shan Zhao and his men are hijacking trucks and stealing their goods, and Sha has joined their ranks. They bully Zhou Qing Quan into giving them money, but since his goods could not be sold, they give him a short time to gain funds. Zhou's son quickly calls for Ip Man, and Zhou asks for Ip Man to teach them Wushu to protect themselves. Thanks to his teachings, the workers in the factory become fluent at Wushu.

At the coal mine, Miura notices that Ip Man has not turned up again, and calls for the troops to search for Ip Man. Sato and several other soldiers are sent to Ip Man's home, but Ip Man takes the entire squad down after Sato harasses her wife, Wing Chen. Li helps Ip Man's family relocate to a smaller house.

Jin Shan Zhao's men return to the Cotton mill, but thanks to Ip Man's teachings, the cotton workers were able to defend themselves from Jin's men. Ip Man arrives to assist them, and later single handedly defeats Jin Shan Zhao's men and Sha, muting Jin's right ear in the process. Before Sha could flee, Ip Man stops him and tells him that his brother is dead. He also gives him the Lin's metal box, which Ip Man found in the coal mine. Sha opens the box, and discovers that it contains the kite he retrieved from the tree on the day he witnessed Ip Man fighting with Master Liao, causing him to break into tears.

The Japanese troops search for Ip Man, and in the process, they raided the cotton factory. Ip Man himself turns up to protect them and arrests him, telling Li and Zhou Qing Quan to take his family out of Foshan. General Miura tells him that he plans to duel with him, and asks for him to teach the Japanese Wushu. Ip Man refuses, saying that he cannot fight after all the atocrities that the Japanese Army commited. Officer Kato threatened to Ip Man that if he wins the duel, he will shoot him dead, but Ip Man explains further that Wushu is based on Confucian Ideas, and he cannot teach the Japanese because they have abused their military power.

Meanwhile, Zhou Qing Quan takes Ip Man's family out of Foshan, but Wing Cheng cries in despair, fearing that this will be Ip Man's last match, causing Zhou Qing Quan to bring Ip Man's family back to Foshan to witness the match.

During Ip Man's match against General Miura, Ip Man beats up General Miura severely, winning the match, but he is shot by Officer Kato. The crowd is provoked, and they break past the Japanese guards to come to the wounded Ip Man's aid. Kato is killed when Li wrestles Kato over the gun. At the end of the film, it is revealed that Ip Man and his family fled to Hong Kong after the incident, and he set up a new Martial Arts school that teaches the art of Wing Chun (A Master who teach Bruce Lee).

Distributors: Fox Walden
U.S. Box Office: $7,871,693

Directed by: Gil Kenan

Synopsis :

The movie introduction explains that the City of Ember is a fully-contained city built underground to house a human community for 200 years as a shelter from an unspecified disaster. Having long since passed the 200-year mark, Ember's food supplies are becoming depleted and blackouts are increasingly frequent and longer-lasting, as the hydroelectric generator that powers the city has deteriorated. Much of the knowledge and technology from the city's near-mythic Builders and earlier generations has been lost.

Two 12-year-olds, Lina Mayfleet (Saoirse Ronan) and Doon Harrow (Harry Treadaway), who live in the City of Ember are graduating from school. They begin their assigned jobs with Lina as one of the messengers who deliver communications around the city following the collapse of the telephone system. Doon is a technician in the Pipeworks of the hydroelectric generator. Lina witnesses the city's decay as she relays messages, and Doon learns that the Pipeworks are held together with increasing amounts of patchwork. Nobody knows in detail how any of the city's systems work. After a major malfunction of the generator during the city's annual celebration, Lina and Doon conclude that Ember is in danger of imminent collapse. With the city's adult population either largely ignorant of their plight or cowed by the corrupt Mayor Cole (Bill Murray), Lina and Doon search for the clues left by the Builders showing the citizens of Ember how to save themselves.

Mayor Cole, understanding the gravity of the city's situation, has been stockpiling food in a secret bunker to guarantee his own survival. He suspects that Lina, a descendant of an earlier mayor who died in office, and Doon may be in possession of lost secrets about Ember and orders them arrested. The pair escape and begin their egress from the city with instructions left by the Builders. They discover a means of evacuation from the city and receive unexpected assistance from Doon's elderly mentor Sul (Martin Landau). Meanwhille, Mayor Cole goes to his bunker and is eaten by a huge, mutated mole. Initially they despair at the enveloping darkness described in Ember's folklore when they emerge from their journey, but when the sun rises they discover that light has returned to the skies and the planet has recovered. They also see the lights of Ember deep below the surface and realize they had lived in an underground city. Lina and Doon drop a message tied to a rock through a crevasse down to Ember telling the other citizens how to leave the city, where it is found by Loris Harrow, Doon's father and one of the few adults cognizant of the city's plight.

Soon after their wedding, John and Jenny escape the brutal Michigan winters and relocate to a cottage in southern Florida, where they are hired as reporters for competing newspapers. At The Palm Beach Post, Jenny immediately receives prominent front-page assignments, while at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, John finds himself writing obituaries and two-paragraph articles about mundane news like a fire at the local garbage dump.

When John senses Jenny is contemplating motherhood, his friend and co-worker Sebastian Tunney suggests the couple adopt a dog to see if they're ready to raise a family. From a litter of newborn yellow labrador retrievers they select Marley (named after reggae singer Bob Marley), who immediately proves to be incorrigible. They bring him to Ms. Kornblut, who firmly believes any dog can be trained, but after he tries to have sex with her believing her to be a poodle she expels them from her class. Afterwards Jenny suggests they have Marley neutered due to the previous incident, but on the way Marley jumps out the window and ends up walking on the sidewalk with his front paws and his back legs being held in the car by John.

Editor Arnie Klein offers John a twice-weekly column in which he can discuss the fun and foibles of everyday living. At first stumped for material, John realizes the misadventures of Marley might be the perfect topic for his first piece. Arnie agrees, and John settles into his new position.

Marley continues to wreak havoc on the household, providing John with a wealth of material for his column, which becomes a hit with readers and helps increase the newspaper's circulation. Jenny becomes pregnant, but loses the baby early in her first trimester. She and John travel to Ireland for a belated honeymoon, leaving the rambunctious dog in the care of a young woman who finds him impossible to control, especially during the frequent thunderstorms that plague the area. Soon after returning from their vacation, Jenny discovers she is pregnant again, and this time she delivers a healthy boy, Patrick. When she has a second son, Connor, she opts to give up her job and become a stay-at-home mom, and the couple decides to move to a larger house in the safer neighborhood of Boca Raton, where Marley delights in swimming in the backyard pool.

John and Jenny welcome a daughter, Colleen, to their family. Although she denies she is experiencing postpartum depression, Jenny exhibits all the symptoms, including a growing impatience with Marley and John, who asks Sebastian to care for the dog when Jenny insists they give him away. She quickly comes to realize he has become an indispensable part of the family and agrees he can stay.

John celebrates his 40th birthday. Increasingly disenchanted with his job, he decides to accept a position as a reporter with The Philadelphia Inquirer with Jenny's blessing, and the family moves to a farm in rural Pennsylvania. Life is idyllic until the aging Marley begins to show signs of slowing down. When it becomes clear surgery will not help his debilitating condition, the family must prepare themselves for life without their beloved pet.

Distributors: Warner Bros. Pictures Distribution
U.S. Box Office: $89,411,000
Starring: Jim Carrey, Rhys Darby, Bradley Cooper, Zooey Deschanel, Sasha Alexander
Directed by: Peyton Reed

Synopsis :

Carl Allen (Jim Carrey) is a divorced middle-aged man in Los Angeles who spends his days working as a junior loan approval officer in a bank, supervised by his immature manager Norman (Rhys Darby). Routinely declining social engagements so as to avoid meeting his ex-wife Stephanie (Molly Sims) with her new boyfriend, he has grown used to spending his evenings watching DVDs alone in his apartment while ignoring his friends' phone calls. But after he disappoints his best friend Pete by forgetting about his engagement party, his friend Nick (John Michael Higgins) persuades him that he needs to start living again. Nick takes Carl to a motivational seminar called "Yes!" where Carl is publicly accosted by inspirational guru Terrence Bundley (Terence Stamp). Browbeaten into making a covenant with himself, Carl promises to stop being a "No Man" and to answer "Yes!" to every opportunity, request, or invitation that presents itself thereafter.

After the seminar, a homeless man asks Carl for a ride to Elysian Park. Although Carl's instinct is to say no, Nick intervenes, reminding Carl that the proper answer is yes. During the drive, the homeless man asks to borrow Carl's cell phone (Carl again agrees) and wears out the battery making calls. When they reach their destination, the man asks for the cash in Carl's wallet (which Carl reluctantly gives), but then Carl discovers that his car has run out of fuel. With his phone battery dead, he hikes to a gas station several miles away, where he meets Allison (Zooey Deschanel). She takes pity on him and gives him a hair-raising scooter ride back to his car. Emboldened by her spontaneity and by a newfound sense of possibility, Carl impulsively kisses Allison, and believes that his life has changed for the better.

After this positive start, Carl continues saying "yes." After he wins a promotion at the bank for agreeing to work on a Saturday, he goes out to celebrate with his friends, gets very drunk, impetuously kisses a girl, and becomes involved in a comic fistfight with her boyfriend (he luckily escapes injury). But when he agrees to erect some shelving for his elderly neighbor Tillie (Fionnula Flanagan), and she proposes to reward him sexually, Carl is horrified. He declines and attempts to leave her apartment—but he gets his shirt stuck in the door, falls down the stairs after freeing himself, and almost gets mauled by a guard dog. Terrified that he has broken the "Yes!" covenant, Carl returns to his neighbor's apartment, where he allows her to perform oral sex on him.

After this brush with his old "No Man" self, Carl now commits himself to taking absolutely every opportunity that comes his way—he begins flying lessons, attends Korean language classes, learns to play the guitar, and even says yes when he receives spam from a Persian dating website. As before, saying yes works to Carl's advantage. When he accepts concert tickets from a promoter whom he has previously ignored, he sees a band whose lead singer turns out to be Allison. Although the band is dreadful and the audience tiny, Carl is again charmed by Allison's spontaneity and idiosyncrasy. She invites him to the unconventional class that she teaches in the park in the mornings, which combines photography with jogging, and the two begin dating.

At work, Carl has been approving every loan application that crosses his desk, but this seemingly reckless approach to lending wins him a promotion to executive after it opens new territory for the bank in the area of microcredit. He even agrees to attend one of Norman's costume parties, where everyone comes dressed as Harry Potter characters (Carl and Allison dress as Harry Potter and Hermione Granger). Carl's newfound talents also prove fruitful when it comes to saving a man (Luis Guzman) from committing suicide: as the man stands on a ledge outside a tall building, Carl picks up a guitar and plays Third Eye Blind's song "Jumper" to persuade the man to return inside.

As their relationship blossoms, Carl and Allison meet at the airport for a spontaneous weekend away. Having decided to take the first plane out of town, they end up in Lincoln, Nebraska, where they explore the Frank H. Woods Telephone Museum, attend a college football game, and go skeet shooting. As they shelter from the rain in a barn before their departure, Allison asks Carl to move in with her. He hesitates, but says yes anyway. But while checking in for the return flight, Carl is detained by FBI agents, who have profiled him as potential terrorist because he has taken flying lessons, studied Korean, approved a loan to start a fertilizer company, been married for six months three years previously, and bought plane tickets at the last minute.

Carl calls his best friend Pete, a lawyer, who travels to Nebraska to explain that Carl is not a terrorist—his odd potpourri of habits, lessons, and decisions stem from his commitment to saying yes to everything. At this point, Allison finds out about Carl's motivational covenant, and begins to doubt whether his commitment to her was ever sincere. She also finds out about Carl's marriage and divorce, which he had not mentioned to her previously. Deciding that she can no longer trust a man who is obliged to say yes to everything, regardless of his true feelings, Allison leaves Carl at the airport. Carl repeatedly tries to contact her, but to no avail.

In a vain effort to speak with Allison, Carl attends another of her band's concerts, where she indirectly tells him to jump off a bridge. In response, Carl signs up to do a bungee jump. While dangling from the bridge after the jump, he receives a phone call from the bank's vice president, saying that he must fire his old boss Norman. He tries to keep a positive mindset—he goes through with the bridal shower he has agreed to organize for Pete's fiancée, and even setting Norman up with Soo-Mi (Vivian Bang), a Korean wedding planner whom he met when planning the shower.

While he is broken up with Allison, Carl gets a tearful phone call from his ex-wife Stephanie, whose boyfriend has walked out on her. Carl goes to Stephanie's apartment to comfort her, but she kisses him passionately and asks whether they can get back together. After Carl emphatically says no, his luck takes a turn for the worse: The elevator in which he tries to leave Stephanie's building almost snaps free of its cable, a black cat crosses his path, and his car gets clamped and towed. He has a momentary hallucination in which the tow-truck operator metamorphoses into himself, and starts to chant "No Man, No Man, No Man."

In desperation, Carl decides to track down Terrence Bundley so that he can be released from the "Yes!" covenant. After lying in wait for Bundley in the backseat of his convertible, Carl emerges after the car pulls off, and tries to plead with the guru. However, Bundley is so shocked that he drives through an intersection without stopping, and collides with an oncoming vehicle. Carl awakes some hours later in the hospital, only for an irate Bundley to tell him that there really wasn't any covenant, and that he wasn't supposed to take saying yes so literally. The point of the covenant was only to open Carl's mind to other possibilities, not to take away his ability to say no when he needed to. Freed from this restraint, Carl borrows a Ducati motorcycle from a male nurse who bought it with one of Carl's loans. He rides the motorcycle to Allison's morning class, wearing nothing but a hospital gown. He apologizes, admits that he does not want to move in with her just yet, but tells her that he genuinely loves and wants her—and has been with her not just because he is compelled to say yes. The couple kiss passionately while the amateur photographers capture the moment.

At the end of the movie, Carl and Allison make a rather large donation of clothes to a local homeless shelter. Cutting to the scene of the Yes! seminar, Bundley is surprised when he walks on stage to several hundred naked audience members. It is implied that the participants have said Yes! to donating their clothes to charity.

In a scene during the credits Carl and Allison try on a new body skating outfit designed by a man he had previously denied a loan early in the film. They zip down a large hill at high speeds laughing all the way.
