My Review

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY was an engaging, heartfelt comedy that my whole family enjoyed watching. I’d seen the previews and it was already on my list of movies I wanted to watch. I liked it even more than I expected I would!

I felt for poor Alexander who was walking around with a bad luck cloud hanging over his head. I can totally relate to bad days where everything goes wrong and you feel like just crawling back into bed till its over. After a particularly horrible day, Alexander makes a birthday wish for his family to know what it feels like to have a bad day. From the outside, their lives appear perfect and all 12 year old Alexander wants is for his family to understand what he goes through each day.


And what a nightmare day it was for the entire family…except Alexander! It was funny and stressful to watch because I knew something bad was going to happen to each of them no matter what they did. I’m not even sure who had it the worst. I think the baby, Trevor, had it the easiest though. However even he had some issues that day too.

Murphy’s law was in full force in this movie and that is part of its charm. If you want a good laugh and be left with a smile on your face when it ends, watch this film.
