In "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," the title character of Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould) is having one of those days. He embarrasses himself (a couple times) in front of his crush and is the subject of an awful Photoshop prank at school. To make matters worse, his whole family including father Ben (Steve Carrell), mother Kelly (Jennifer Garner), brother Anthony (Dylan Minnette) and sister Emily (Kerris Dorsey) are all having the best days ever and totally cannot relate to what Alexander is going through.
Fast forward one day, however, and the tables turn. Ben has a disastrous job interview, Anthony fails his driving test and Emily has issues with her school play. That's not even counting the alligator the family encounters in their home. So when the family is struggling to deal with their very bad days, Alexander becomes the unlikely hero in reminding them that sometimes the bad days are there to make them appreciate the good days even more. Wise advice from the youngster!"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" brings a family film to theaters already filled with other more adult movies including "The Boxtrolls," "This is Where I Leave You," and "The Maze Runner."
