Review: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible No Good #VeryBadDay

JeYou better believe that everybody doesn’t want to see you do GOOD. In fact many people, including your own family, want to see you do VERY BAD. At least that’s the way that Alexander thinks since his whole family is oblivious to him and his needs in Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.


I admit, I’ve had some of those Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Days as of late. And it seemed like the thunderstorm I was experiencing was never going to dry up so I could bask in the rainbow of having a good day. But my family pulled me through thankfully much like Alexander’s family will help him while getting through their own turbulent, awful episodes of destruction.

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 he is 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.

Steve Carell is charming as the do-it-all dad who tries hard to get things back on track with his job situation. Jennifer Garner is a delightful mom whose busy and bustling life gives way to her being a bit oblivious to Alexander’s needs. I love a good bumbling comedy that makes me laugh because I’ve personally connected with the terrible situation I’m seeing on-screen.


There were so many misadventures in Alexander that you will feel a flurry of emotions. It’s a great family comedy that really makes you honor family and it gives you a wake-up call to pay attention to your own crew so that you are sure to avoid these types of calamities.
