“Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.”
I saw this movie on my recent press trip to LA in July, and then again this past weekend with my family at a preview. I laughed and I laughed, as did the audience.
And two of my favorite funny ladies are in this one!
I love Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) and Jennifer Coolidge (Two Broke Girls). Do you get the idea from the above picture that there are some tough spots in this family’s day?
And the below seems to capture a few of the movie’s hottest moments!
But this is my favorite Steve Carell calamity:
This was a great family movie for us, and it will be for you. And I do not want to reveal any spoilers, but the fun keeps going all the way till the last scene!
Disclosure: Disney invited me on this press trip and paid all of my expenses. No other compensation was received. All opinions are always 100% my own and honest.
ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY Opens 10/10/14!
