When I initially heard about Netflix's new comedy film, Yes Day, my first thought was: "This sounds like every parent's worst nightmare." I mean, two adults who agree to say "yes" to all of their kids' requests? For a whole 24 hours?? The whole concept sounded so foreign to me, especially since I'd grown up in such a strict household. But while I couldn't understand the reasoning behind this approach, I was still intrigued by the movie's plot.
Yes Day's two-minute trailer, which highlights a number of fun adventures, made it seem like a family-friendly version of Jim Carrey's Yes Man (which I really loved). Better yet, when I saw that Jennifer Garner, one of my favorite celebrities ever, was going to star in it, I was 100 percent sold. So I gave the film a shot, but was it worth the watch? Read on for my honest review.
