Yes Day movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The film is fun-silly and is packed with hilarious ideas. Yes Day is a Netflix comedy for families and is certainly worth picking for movie night. Despite the rude humour, this family movie is actually pretty entertaining.


Two parents who always respond with the word “no” to their kids’ wild requests decide to experiment with an idea that their three children get a day to make all the rules and decisions.

Aussie boy's thoughts

This is honestly just an excellent family comedy all about dumb fun, silly humour, and a huge mix of terrific ideas. Due to these childish elements, Yes Day is… unexpectedly fun. Although young children will find it all hilarious family fun, which it is, teens and adults will likely engage with the more responsible perspective of the parents. Anyway, spend some time to relax with your family and pick this light, entertaining slapstick comedy.

For everyone, this Netflix comedy presents several handfuls of positive family messages. The foolish humour it provides is mainly positioned for young children and undeniably gives the impression of being simple stupidness, which it is, but it’s actually fairly fun to witness. The crazy mess is just a pleasure for a family movie night, although the kids get a little irritating at times and it isn’t too satisfying.

The crazy mess is fun, but it’ll leave you feeling unsatisfied after the credits have rolled. Therefore, it’s completely effortless to understand how many teens and grown ups will find this movie a load of stupidity. The silly material and rude, babylike humour is constant.

In Yes Day, there’s two perspectives to view it from: “This family comedy is childish and completely stupid”, or “This family comedy is childish but honestly fun”. What mainly makes Yes Day an awesome family-friendly comedy, is how surprisingly entertaining the film is. There’s plenty of good laughs and fun feelings to hold you through it.
