Our Mighty Yaya is a 2017 Filipino family-comedy film that revolves around a wealthy Filipino family who hires a nanny from the province. It stars the award-winning actress AiAi Delas Alas as Yaya, the family's new nanny. The movie showcases the culture shock that Yaya experiences as she adjusts to the lifestyle of her employer's family.

The film begins with Trixie (Megan Young), a fashion designer and the daughter of the wealthy couple who owns a fashion business. She is based in Manila and is starting to have problems with her live-in boyfriend. Meanwhile, her parents, Dondi (Zoren Legaspi) and Katrina (Mylene Dizon), are worried that their daughter cannot even prepare her own meals, prompting them to search for a responsible nanny. They eventually find Yaya, a provincial nanny who came from Samar and has worked for other families before.

Initially, Trixie dislikes Yaya, but eventually, she realizes that Yaya can be trusted and is the perfect nanny for her. However, Yaya's ability to do household chores and other activities is not up to par with the other nannies Trixie's family had before. The family has to teach her how to drive and to navigate the internet. However, in return, Yaya changes the lives of the family members in a positive way, teaching them the values of honesty, love, and family.

Our Mighty Yaya highlights the virtues of family, kindness, and generosity, as Yaya goes beyond her job description of taking care of the household and the children. Her love and dedication inspire each family member to change their attitude towards each other and become closer as they learn to appreciate and respect each other.

The acting performances in Our Mighty Yaya is one of its strongest points. AiAi Delas Alas as Yaya captures the heart of the viewers with her portrayals of a caring and loving nanny. Megan Young as Trixie is impressive, displaying the challenges of a daughter who grew up with all the luxuries and now has to learn to stand on her own two feet. Zoren Legaspi and Mylene Dizon are equally commendable as they show the real-life struggles of parents in the modern world.

Another aspect that adds to the charm of the film is its lighthearted tone. Despite addressing serious themes, the movie doesn't dwell on them, making it a perfect film to watch for Filipino families to bond and unwind.

What makes Our Mighty Yaya stand out is the relatability of the characters, allowing viewers to see a reflection of themselves or their families in them.
