Quick Movie Review: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014)


Steve Carell is always likable and where Jennifer Garner is meant to be funny, she is really funny. And while this film isn’t amazing, it’s also fairly entertaining. If you can get past the slow set up, the slapstick is pretty fun. However, there are a few screaming plot holes, and some of the minor characters who are contributing to this bad day can get annoying with their unrealistic behaviors. But the main cast was all really impressive, and a few bits had me laughing out loud.

The premise isn’t stale by any means, but nothing crazy enough happens in this movie that will get talked about after the day is over. But it’s a really good kids movie if nothing else.
