We’ve all had bad days, as an adult, these usually consist of waking up late for work, getting stuck in traffic, maybe your boss is feeling particularly angry with you. There are many reasons we may be having a bad day, but nothing compares to the terrible, horrible no good, very bad day that 11-year-old Alexander experiences in Disney’s new movie, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible No Good, Very Bad Day.”
As an adult, our bad days may start with a faulty alarm clock, for Alexander (Ed Oxenbould), his bad day starts with a piece of chewing gum stuck in his hair. While that is a true sign of a terrible day ready to unfold, it only gets worse for poor Alexander. However,the worst part of a bad day could be the feeling of going through it alone. Alexander notices that as he tells his family (who may be suffering through their own bad day) about his bad day, they seem to be unable to relate. Alexander’s father (Steve Carell), mother (Jennifer Garner), Sister (Kerris Dorsey) and brother (Dylan Minnette) all find themselves stuck in the middle of their own no good, very bad day.
