What They Say:
Six people. Living in one building but following different paths. Each gets through the day in their own way – and with their own voice.

The joke for “Yes-People” is that various people going about their daily lives say nothing but different variations of ‘yes.’
I think this is the first time I’ve ever written a single sentence for a main review. I also hope it’s the last such time I will need to write such a brief review. Though it’s easier on the workload, it’s not exactly putting my journalism studies to good use. All that being said, however, I don’t see a whole lot of purpose in expanding on the above. The whole short is pretty much one joke told over and over again, and at just barely under 9 minutes in length, there isn’t exactly a lot of complexity in that repeated joke.
This doesn’t make the short poor though. In fact, the whole thing was quite humorous (especially a scene involving an elderly couple, you know…renewing their vows). At such a short length it gets in, does what it needs to, and gets out. It doesn’t overstay its welcome and is charming for what it is.
