Netflix has released a trailer for Yes Day. It is one of many original films that the streaming service will air in 2021. Since theaters aren’t showing many new releases yet, Netflix is responding by giving its subscribers many options in this regard. In this case, it is a family comedy with Jennifer Garner (“Love,” “Simon,” “Alias”) and Edgar Ramirez (“Last Days of American Crime,” “Deliver Us from Evil”). They play the parents who, instead of saying no to their children, decide to say yes. To everything. Not surprisingly, things get a little hectic.
The trailer opens with several instances where Alison and Carlos, played by Jennifer Garner and Edgar Ramirez, are forced to say “no” to their children while causing domestic chaos. Fireworks. Explosive riots. All this leads to a big “no.” The couple realizes that their children see them as buzz killers, making them think of their lives before their children, while saying yes to everything. The children then give them the idea that they can say “yes” for a whole day if they can’t say “no” to everything the children ask for for 24 hours. They say yes, and things quickly get out of hand. Yet parents make a valiant effort to change their image in the eyes of their children.
The cast also includes Jenna Ortega (Nanny: The Killer Queen), Julian Lerner (Pottersville), Everly Carganilla (Haunted Man), Fortune Feimster (The Mindy Project), Nat Faxon (The Way, The Way Back), Arturo Castro (Broad City) and Molly Sims (Wrong Missy). The director is Miguel Arteta. He previously worked with Jennifer Garner in Alexander and One Horrible, Horrible, Bad, Very Bad Day. Other Arteta credits include Like a Boss and Youth in Revolt. Arteta has also directed acclaimed television series such as Nurse Jackie and Continuity.
On “Yes” Day, Alison (Jennifer Garner) and Carlos (Edgar Ramirez), who always feel like they have to say “no” to their children and co-workers, decide to give their three children a “Yes.” Within 24 hours, the kids can set the rules. The proposal sends them on a fast-paced adventure through Los Angeles that brings the family closer than ever before. It is based on a book by illustrator Tom Lichtenheld and author Amy Cruz Rosenthal. It was first published in 2009.
This film is one of 70 original films Netflix plans to release in 2021. These include a host of blockbuster projects from Hollywood, such as Red Notice, an original thriller starring Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds. Other notable titles include Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up, Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, the highly anticipated Chicken Run 2 and R.L. Stine’s Fright Street trilogy. Some great films have already been released, including Beyond the Wire and Malcolm and Marie. Yes Day is coming to the Neflix streaming service on March 12. Don’t forget to check out the new trailer.
