Jennifer Garner is one of those rare Hollywood commodities that can turn out a fantastic action flick and then turn around and give us a wonderful family film. And she has done it once again with Yes Day.
This is the movie of kids' dreams and parents' nightmares. As much as I think I would like to give my kids a "yes" day, I'm almost positive that they would use it to try to kill me. I got proof of this while watching this film and my young girls kept on looking at me and then launching into diabolical laughter.
If you are looking for something to watch with the whole family this weekend, this is a perfect choice. It is fun, funny, exciting, heartwarming, and wonderfully enjoyable for the whole family.
Garner and Jenna Ortega have great chemistry in their respective mother/daughter roles. And Edgar Ramirez fits in well to the chaotic harmony of their family. They all have moments that will make you laugh out loud, shed a tear, and cringe with sympathy.
Grab some popcorn and whatever else the kids want as snacks and enjoy this film together. Just be warned that your children are going to get all sorts of terrible ideas from this movie, and they are going to expect you to say "yes".
