Yes Day: Jenna Ortega alongside Jennifer Garner
In 2021, Jenna Ortega was already shining on Netflix. This time it was a feature film called Yes Daystarring Jennifer Garner in this comedy with an original pitch: one fine day, parents who feel like they’re constantly saying “Nope” to their children decide to offer them a “yes day”. 24 hours during which the couple formed by the star ofA.k.a and comedian Edgar Ramírez will accept whatever their children ask of them. A day full of twists and turns is therefore to be expected!
Why watch this comedy: Because Jenna Ortega excels there in the role of a teenager who does everything to assert her desire for independence but who sometimes gets lost along the way. The scene in which we see her having a panic attack on her way to a concert alone is absolutely memorable and shows a vulnerability totally absent from the character of Wednesday Addams.
