Dramedy: To prove they can still be fun and not always say "no," a mom and dad agree to give their three kids a "yes day" where they must say agree to every request.

Once upon a time, Allison (JENNIFER GARNER) and Carlos Torres (EDGAR RAMIREZ) were a fun couple who said yes to every opportunity and adventure that crossed their paths. And then they had kids and quickly turned into over-protective parents who were always saying no to keep their children safe. But with Carlos at the office during the day and then being the fun parent when he comes home, Allison is now the "bad cop" in the eyes of 14-year-old Katie (JENNA ORTEGA) and 11-year-old Nando (JULIAN LERNER), although their younger sister, Ellie (EVERLY CARGANILLA), hasn't yet gotten to the point of viewing her mom as a dictator.

Allison and Carlos learn that their two oldest view her that way after talking with their kids' teachers, and then get advice from the school's guidance counselor who says he has a happy household due to giving his kids an occasional "yes day." That's when they get whatever they want -- within preset parameters and limits -- and the parents can't say no. Allison and Carlos initially think that's a crazy idea, but eventually decide to go for it. With a bet between Allison and Katie -- where the teen will end up attending a concert with her mom or her friends being on the line -- Allison and Carlos prepare themselves to say yes, all while their kids put them to the test.

Since it's about kids getting their way for a day, many younger ones probably will.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
