“Dia do Sim” is the new Netflix family comedy that you’ll want to watch over the weekend

It stars Jennifer Garner and Edgar Ramírez. It opens this Friday March 12th.

The film opens on Friday.

It may seem unlikely to many parents or people who are used to taking care of children, but in the new Netflix movie “Dia do Sim” parents got tired of saying no to their children.

That is why they install “Dia do Sim” for 24 hours – where the children dictate the rules and what they want to do and the parents simply have to accept them. This is the requirement for the family comedy that opens on the streaming platform this Friday March 12th.

The story is based on the children’s book of the same name by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld, which was published in 2009. Miguel Arteta is the director who was responsible for the filming.

Jennifer Garner and Edgar Ramírez play the parents of this family. The cast of this production, recorded in Los Angeles, includes names such as Jenna Ortega, Julian Lerner, Everly Carganilla, Tracie Thoms, Fortune Feimster and Nat Faxon.

The story begins with Garner’s character Allison, who reveals what her life was like before she became a mother. She was an adventurous young woman who simply said yes to everything. Does the parachute jump? Yes why not? Traveling alone in inhospitable places? Sure, let’s do it.

She later meets Carlos, the future husband and father of her children, and falls in love with him. He is the ideal partner for a life in which he says “yes” to new experiences, always from adventure to adventure.

A decade and a half later, things changed. The couple have a stable life with three children – each with their own impulses and desires – and Allison and Carlos always say no, which creates tension with the children.

The eldest daughter, the teenage girl Katie, is about to riot if she is not allowed to go to a festival with friends and without parental supervision. Middle son Nando just made a video for school comparing his mother to Stalin. And little Ellie also has her own complaints, even if she cannot express it so aggressively and seriously.

He is a teacher at the school who eventually suggests that Carlos and Allison adopt the Yes Day rule. When the long awaited day comes, parents are surprised with a whole schedule of things to do in those 24 hours. This could include a giant ice cream, a battle of water balloons, but also a catastrophe for the family car.

At the same time, Carlos and Allison are not in the prime of their relationship – and the dynamic between the two promises to be troubled, although hopes of a happy ending remain.

The bottom line of the story in general, of course, serves parents better: children learn that there are reasons why parents set boundaries, and that this is often for their own safety and wellbeing. The review didn’t praise “Dia do Sim”, but they can give this light comedy, which lasts less than an hour and a half, an opportunity.
