The plot tells of Allison (Garner) and Carlos (Ramírez), the parents of three children who have basically had enough of their parents saying no to everything. Allison and Carlos, feeling like they may actually be saying no to workers and their kids a little too much, decide to take part in a YES DAY – allowing their kids to make all the rules for 24 hours. It’s going to be more of a challenge than they first thought.
This amiable-looking film comes from director Miguel Arteta, whose credits include Youth in Revolt and Disney’s in-a-similar-vain Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (which also had Garner). Office Christmas Party scribe Justin Malen penned the screenplay, an adaptation of the children’s picture-book of the same name from author Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrator Tom Lichtenheld.
Should be a light and easy watch for the fam on a weekend arvo. Yes Day, also starring Jenna Ortega, Julian Lerner, Everly Carganilla, Fortune Feimster, Nat Faxon, Arturo Castro, and Molly Sims, will be streaming on Netflix from March 12th.
