A Great Family Film to Be Enjoyed With Your School Aged Kids (by rannynm)
What a hilarious adventure! Something I like about this film is that although it's a comedy, at the same time, the directors have created a story so it doesn't feel as if it's just one big joke. In my estimation, it is just perfect. This film has a bubble of unique comedy that sends the audience laughing out loud. And, it has a sprinkle of romance packaged with it which makes it a unique story. The story starts out showing an eleven- soon to be twelve -year-old kid who always has bad days while everyone else in his entire family always has perfect days. On the very early morning <more>
of his 12th birthday he wishes that his family members would have a bad day. Well they do! And, phew, is it bad! This film has comedy that isn't just little jokes or things that are commonly seen in lots of normal comedies but, unique and creative comedy that is really funny. The actors are all well suited to their roles and, something I love about this film is that the ending is not easily predictable. Also, the story is created in such a way that the comedy is just a part of the story. The creators managed to get a very important message through to the audience.My favorite scene is when the sister is under the weather with a common cold but has a play that day. She decides to drink a whole bunch of cough medicine and gets drunk during the play. This part is absolutely hilarious. The entire audience, including me, could not stop laughing during this scene. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a young kid film but not too young. I would recommend for ages 9 to 18 and I give it 5 out of 5 stars for a great story, fantastic acting and unbelievable comedy!Reviewed by KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Gerry O.
If only there were more stars to give... (by renatebraddy)
In a world that has long gotten way too cynical and lurid for my taste, finally there is a movie I can see with my husband and children and walk out feeling GOOD about having spent my money on it. Rarely is a movie truly family friendly unless it's done by Pixar or the like these days, but THIS one is an absolute hit! It started a teeny bit slowly, but once it took off it soared. I laughed out loud several times a rarity and my kids and husband were equally entranced. This is a great movie and I am thrilled that someone took a chance at producing a movie without profanity, nudity or <more>
crassness. You have to be a REAL rebel to attempt producing an actual CLEAN MOVIE!!!!!!!!!! A big 'thanks' from our family and I have promoted it to everyone I can.
My 6 year old daughter and I really loved the movie. It is a great family movie with lots of funny scenes and characters that we all can relate to. Would recommend everyone go to see it!!! All the characters in the movie did a great job of showing what it is really like being in a busy family. Alexander was a character that I am sure so many kids either know or feel like at times. What transpires throughout the show is crazy but believable. I think we all have had those days that everything seems to go wrong. But in the end, the movie ends up on a very happy note and really made me want to <more>
Funny movie for kids and kid's at heart. (by thealphakeno)
It was a good family movie for KIDS and kid at heart. Kinda reminds me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid trilogy in a different way. The movie talks about Alexander, a kid who thinks his life is a big mess until he accidentally wishes to make her family experience what his life to be in just one day.It's not really a pure comedy with lots of laugh and stuff but there are scenes that you might find funny while the other half is awkward. I rate it 90% due to the fact that I can relate to his problem and we both love Australia so it's a plus for my rating.Maybe you might find it boring, but I <more>
think it was made for the kids who can relate to his situation and I 'am one of it so I like it. Not the best but it was entertaining good.
Alexander and The Wonderful, Darling, Absolutely Adorably, Very Sweet Movie (by italianredneckgirl)
I'm a huge sucker for a movie with Steve Carroll that is family family friendly. He is such a believably sweet actor. And AATHNGVBD title was no exception. Alexander, turning 12, is a classic kid but propelled into the modern world. Nothing goes right for him. From spilling his drink to setting his love interests lab book on fire, Alexander is a lovable underdog. Couple that with those super sweet baby blue eyes and slight speech impediment and cue box office gold. Watching this movie with my own almost 12 year old, I was pleasantly at ease and found that the film flew by. No <more>
inappropriate content, language or situations. The closest AATHNGVBD comes is the typo in mom's Jennifer Garner book release. But, even so, jumping or dumping, Dick VanDyke and Meghan Mullally easily turn it into a laughable moment that really isn't a focal point of the movie. Seeing a family, seemingly so put together, fall apart was great. Even though the falling apart was epic, it didn't seem over the top or improbable. Cough syrup induced euphoria, typos, vomit, failed driver's license exam, and a little green marker could totally happen. The fact it happened after Alexander's midnight birthday wish was a bit coincidental, but lovable and upbeat. There really aren't books and movies, that aren't animated, that make it possible for many family nights. I'm so thrilled this turned out so well. Realizing I had read the book to my now 22 year old daughter, it was great to see a little divergence into present day. And just when you believe everything's gonna be OK, the "Thunder From Down Under" adds one last laugh. All together, well done!
The poster, the trailer and the genre will leave many assuming the worst. Another movie with over-the-top sight gags that would never happen in reality and are unable to entertain adult viewers. But this Alexander is not terrible. Instead it takes the high road in the family movie category by not depicting a dysfunctional family but instead showing us how parents and kids can pull together and overcome difficult circumstances. I was impressed that all the "terrible" things that happen could pretty much actually occur. And with four kids myself, let me assure you that some days <more>
really do play out similar to the one shown here. Of course, they aren't quite this crazy, but they are realistic enough family-inclined that will be able to relate to the antics on screen, and that's what makes the humor in this movie work so well.I was also pleased to see two parents who are not "stupid". Both the father and mother are intelligent and hard working and are doing their best to make a bad day better for their kids. Call it sentimental if you wish, but for those of us with family experiences I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how entertaining and touching this film is. Within the scope of similar movies, this one is an 8 out of 10.
A film that does more than want all of your headline space (by StevePulaski)
I'm sure anyone who read my three scathing reviews of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" film franchise assumed I'd deliver a similarly scathing review to the film adaptation of the children's book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," a book that was read to me about fifteen to twenty times cover-to-cover when I was a child. Right off the bat, the film, judging from the marketing campaign's focus and trailers, was headed down the road of being a part of the "maximum antics, minimum laughter" subgenre, or the kind of <more>
children's film that is unsubstantial and dreadfully harmful to the attention span of its audiences.I report back with a surprising amount of optimism; "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" is a thoroughly pleasant affair, greatly reminiscent of the kinds of films my generation grew up with, released in the nineties or early 2000′s. It has the right amount of geniality to appeal to kids of all ages, but the right balance of humor to remain surprisingly mature, in the face when so many jokes are made and could look to cater to the lowest common denominator of childish humor. The biggest problem with children's films nowadays is their impulsion to include extremely unnecessary amounts of bathroom humor, awful situational comedy, and cheap, inane sloganeering see Nickelodeon's "iCarly" for the best example of this ."Alexander" doesn't compromise at that, effectively finding the heart and natural humor of its situational comedy without trying to make it brazenly clear with an abundance of awful screen writing. Writer Rob Lieber is essentially writing this story on a terrain filled with mines and hazards, but finds the humor in the actual situation over what the characters could possibly say to further decorate or emphasize the current scenario. It doesn't overplay jokes, it moves with commendable fluidity through its barrage of "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad" events that span the course of a day, and, quite frequently, is laugh-out-loud funny.The story concerns the Cooper family, made up of the family patriarch Ben Steve Carell , who is seeking a new job, Kelly Jennifer Garner , an author of children's books, Anthony Dylan Minnette , the oldest of the couple's siblings, looking to get his license and attend prom with his inconsiderate, stuck-up girlfriend Bella Thorne , Emily Kerris Dorsey , who is looking forward to her starring role in "Peter Pan," the couple's infant toddler, in love with his bumblebee pacifier, and, finally, twelve-year-old Alexander Ed Oxenbould , who's birthday happens to be the day the family experiences the day from Hell. For starters, everybody wakes up late with their own individual problem, and the worst possible circumstances plague this family so much so that Emily can only label the day as "cursed" over and over again.The film progresses by showing each individual catastrophe unfold in a way that doesn't feel so much perfunctory as it does a screen writing exercise on behalf of Lieber to try and extract all the humor that can be brought out of a situation rather than the dialog that can be added in as it occurs. In addition, the film never tries to delude itself by justifying the events of the day as being some sort of "learning experience" or having the characters incessantly "look on the bright side" of things. The characters have no qualms admitting that the day has sucked, and little to no elements concerning self-delusion are ever proposed."Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" may have its missteps, as it sometimes oversteps the crude boundary in terms of how childish its dialog wants to be, but even that is buoyed by some rather risqué but good-natured material including one uproariously funny zinger by Garner, which is only continued by Carell . The film is one of the most fun kid films of the year, but as somebody studying writing in college, we may need to talk about redundancy and an overuse of adjectives in the film's title, which may be the film's biggest issue. Anybody who can approach the ticket counter and say "One for 'Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" without stuttering deserves a generous discount on their ticket price.
Alexander and the terrible horrible no good very bad day is actually a fun film for the whole family. As a teenager I did accept that the film was unrealistic when Alexander makes the wish with the candle. Some people need to look at the supposed target audience younger people and think if they enjoy it,it doesn't matter if the adults think it's silly hence everything that happens in the terrible day. The film was clearly intended to be a bit silly and fun, but it doesn't make it bad even if the storyline and the characters are a bit weak....you just have to support the fact <more>
that the film is made to be hilarious and enjoy it.
