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.



IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Assisted by his playful cast, Arteta brings so much clear-eyed, character-driven comic mayhem to every scene that even the wildest script contrivances and most egregious McDonald’s product placements (one scene might as well be sponsored by the McGriddle) are graced with an actual sense of fun.
Los Angeles Times - Kimber Myers
Like its juvenile characters, Yes Day sometimes goes too far, with over-the-top scenes that lessen the impact of the genuine emotions elsewhere. But will kids whine about it (other than for their own Yes Day)? Probably not, and parents likely won’t mind either.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Aparita Bhandari
Ultimately, Yes Day doesn’t commit to either being a full-out family fun movie or a family drama.
The A.V. Club - Charles Bramesco
The difficult negotiations of childrearing might have been a fine subtext—something to occupy the attention of parents in the audience—for a comedy so unmistakably family-oriented in tone. But in Yes Day, that element of the story is less of a side dish served for a more mature palate than the whole entrée.
Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
The promising beginning shows that it could have been something more than dumb. Alas, it’s not.
