Not only does she look forever young, but Jennifer Garner has a knack for tapping into her inner child.
The movie focuses on the trend of parents hosting Yes Days where, within certain parameters, they must say yes to anything their kids want to do. Sounds terrifying to us, but we don’t have kids so even an hour of babysitting makes us nervous and fearful for our well-being.
(We presume they’re all Children of the Corn until they prove otherwise.)
But our personal issues aside, we loved this movie and the wholesome, feel-good energy of it all. It takes us back to the wonder of childhood but also taps into how and why people change once they have kids and can be perceived as “not fun anymore.”
Among several highlights for us, a great cameo from Fortune Feimster (she’s everywhere these days!) as a lesbian ambulance driver with a loose interpretation of her duty to serve, had us highly entertained.
Yes Day also brought back memories of our mischievous adolescence when we often got in trouble for flushing the wrong kinds of things down the toilet. And a scene where this happens to the children brought with it plenty of nostalgia, laughs and a little PTSD.
Even f you don’t have kids.
