Sometimes, luck just isn’t on your side.
Starring: Steve Carrell and Jennifer Garner
Plot: The film follows 11-year-old Alexander 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 his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he is not alone when his brother, sister, mom, and dad all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days.
Remarks: The film reminded me a lot of Disney’s Bedtime Stories in the way that this film is geared to the younger audiences, unlike films like Frozen which many adults would also enjoy. I must say that Steve Carrell and Jennifer Garner pulled off their characters incredibly well. In fact, most of the cast were hilarious in their roles – besides Bella Thorne (who I honestly STILL think looks like a man). Don’t go into this movie expecting a lot and yes, as I mentioned, it is definitely aimed at kids but with most Disney films, there is an underlying message that is an important lesson for kids.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day releases on October 31st, 2014.
