Did your parents say yes to everything you asked for? If not, which is a possible answer, the film Yes might be something you’ve been dreaming of. A day when parents can’t say no to and kids can have whatever they want. Yes Day is every child’s dream!
Yes, the day has just aired on Netflix which consists of a great plot and a family time movie. The story has a good family with children around it. Children are always the epicenter of fun and happiness that a film can contain. Yes, Day is a comedy film played by director Miguel Arteta. This film is inspired by a book called ‘Yes Day’. This means that whatever the children say, parents should say ‘Yes’ without including ‘No’ in their dictionary.
The plot consists of the Torres family where the father is one of the nicest men who dance with the kids in the mornings. Meanwhile, mother is the stereotype of mother who always cares for her children so she makes them puppets which makes the children say to her mother, that she is a killer who is fun and always disappoints them.
Yes Day: What is The Plot?
The story begins with Allison Torres telling her past life that while some people say ‘no’ to things, she is a ‘Yes’ kind of everything. He said yes to life, yes to trouble, and yes to all to come. The same goes for Ramirez Carlos who met Allison at the coffee shop a few years ago. He’s also the ‘Yes’ type of person. Then the two of them together said yes to everything from spending the whole day at the beach to ditching. And finally, they said Yes to get married and have a sweet wedding ceremony.
And then they have children, Three children! Allison explained that ‘Yes’ is the new ‘No’. Therefore, the children of Katie aka Jenna Ortega, the oldest daughter, Nando alias Julian Lerner, the middle child, and Ellie aka Everly Carganilla, the youngest child, thought that their mother was not ‘Fun Mom’. On the contrary, Dad is a ‘Good Cop’ and he still says yes to everything.
The plot continues and changes after parent-teacher meets, where the teacher explains to the mother that her children have a Draconian problem that usually occurs when children are faced with massive rules and regulations and there is no room for them to relax. This makes the mother give her children Yes Day. A day when children can hope for whatever they want.
Children ask for basic normal things that can be kept under normal circumstances too. They asked her mother to put on makeup, wash the car but with the window open. The story is suitable for family audiences as there are no jokes and ambiguous acts that may not be suitable for family viewing time.

Finally, Allison agrees to say Yes throughout the day with some clear ground rules. There are also some rules from the kids if Allison can’t refuse, no, Katie, the oldest teenage daughter will be able to attend music events at night without adult supervision. And if Allison pulls ‘no’ she will be able to come with Katie and she will have to sit next to him.
Then the kids started their day with an ice cream challenge. Then they go to an amusement park where they get on coasters and Allison gets off the tracks. And last but not least, the middle child, Nando, who previously experimented with mini volcanoes, has a nerd party at home. You can imagine what happened to that house.
The story becomes interesting and more fun when children want a game where their parents have to collect flags with balloons filled with water. What could be the wish of more descendants than this? This film is unlikely to exhaust the audience in a few minutes, it will keep the audience engaged in the fun activities and real-life experiences they may relate to.
Yes Day Review
This film is a family comedy and nothing comes out of the blue and remains natural in every way. The kids made their wish and nothing like alladin made from his gennie. The story illustrates how heavily rules and regulations change a child’s perception of their parents. Overall, this movie is great for families to watch which might help the kids get some freedom and some air to breathe from the bad hardcore house rules. Even watching this film yourself is useful.
