Yes Day (2021)

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned from being a mom, it’s that parents and kids always disagree on one thing… Rules.” – Allison Torres

Number of Times Seen – 1 (13 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Parents having trouble with their kids decide to grant them one day where the kids get to choose what they’ll do and the parents must agree.

My Take on it – Intriguing idea that is hit and miss the whole way through.

Edgar Ramirez and Jennifer Garner are fine as the parents, but something constantly feels off about the chemistry with one another and with the children.

The story is one that merits so much because the idea is truly a unique one that could potentially help families try and connect much better than beforehand.

The various antics that this film present to the audience are quite good and fun especially given the fact that they all have a realistic feel along the way.

The scene at the concert towards the end is quite moving and shows a side of parenting that kids unfortunately only learn when they find themselves in a certain dangerous kind of situation.

There are parts of this film that go to the extreme yet still within the context of the concept are enjoyable to watch despite the unrealistic aspect of certain parts.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – When they’re at the amusement park, Katie asks her Mom (Jennifer Garner) if she wants cotton candy, and she says “no” which is on “Yes Day”. This is the first time she says “no” on “Yes Day” which would make her lose their deal, but seems to be ignored. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
