Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Eleven-year-old Alexander experiences the most awful day of his young life – a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair followed by mishap after mishap. So when Alexander tells his happy-go-lucky family about his terrible day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if only bad things happen to him. But he’s not alone when his mum, dad, brother and sister all find themselves having their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day and Alexander begins to realise that anybody who says there’s no such thing as a bad day simply has never had one.

      This movie is a good one for the kids. A movie with a simple lesson to accept the bad days and enjoy every good one. To be more positive.

      About the movie out of my point of view? Well, not that awesome, but you can’t expect a lot of this kind of movies. Steve Carell didn’t perform at his best, that is obvious, but that wasn’t even necessary.

      After all, this whole movie was from the point of view of Alexander. Of course they did choose to make it a little childish. I believe the acting was also based on the viewer to be around 5 – 10 years old. Some simple jokes, not a lot of jokes where to use the brain, but more of the eyes.
