Trip Down Memory Lane: Yes Day Movie
Yes Day is a family comedy based on an Amy Krouse Rosenthal children’s book that premiered on Netflix in March. On a frenetic day of fun and adventure, a mom and dad who typically say no decide to say yes to their kids’ craziest demands, with a few ground restrictions. The original film, directed by Miguel Arteta and produced by Entertainment 360, Grey Matter, and Garner, also stars Edgar Ramirez and Jenna Ortega. Netflix shared the official synopsis of the film on their website:
“A mom and dad who usually say no decide to say yes to their kids’ wildest requests — with a few ground rules — on a whirlwind day of fun and adventure.”
According to Netflix, the family comedy released in March and has been seen in 62 million households, making it the company’s biggest kids and family movie to date. Garner will shortly star in two Netflix films that are not part of her new contract, in addition to the Yes Day sequel. The Adam Project, directed by Shawn Levy and starring Ryan Reynolds, Zoe Saldana, and Mark Ruffalo, is the first film in which she has been cast. The other is Family Leave, a comedy based on the novel Bedtime For Mommy by New York Times bestselling author Rosenthal.
“I am honored to join the wonderful group of creatives in the Netflix family, and I am really excited to work with their enthusiastic and imaginative teams across all departments,” Garner said in a statement accompanying the announcement. “Bringing ‘Yes Day’ to life was the most rewarding and creative experience of my life,” she added.
