No. 1 on NETFLIX
IT’s A YES DAY AS AMY KROUSE ROSENTHAL’S BOOK HITS THE TOP OF THE NETFLIX CHARTS
COMEDY AND FEELGOOD PROGRAMMES take the stage
PAGE TURNERS MAKE GREAT VIEWING
Mid March figures show that books are still riding high in the charts with four of Netflix’s current Top 10 in the States being adaptations. YES DAY, a feelgood family comedy has leapt straight to the top today as Amy Krouse Rosenburg’s fun and simple concept about one day in the year when whatever the kids ask for gets a YES, making a movie the most watched programme on the steaming giant’s network, with Jennifer Garner and Edgar Ramirez facing the pain of an all out yes the kids day. Enjoy watching it, though it might make you think twice about participating.
The Top 10 is a mix of comedy, dram, thriller and reality – with the over-riding domination being in one fact – 8 of the 10 series are Netflix Originals.
The one day of the year when everything the kids ask for – they get… just say YES!
