Is Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY funny, like good funny?


Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is now in theaters!

I cannot tell you how much fun it was learning all about this movie, interviewing the cast, and partaking in some hi-jinks along the way — umm, have you seen this image yet…..


Obviously I’m not actually part of the cast, but the people that ARE in the film (Ed Oxenbould, Dylan Minnette, Kerris Dorsey, Jennifer Garner, and Steve Carrell) are pretty amazing.  If you haven’t been keeping up with our amazing time on all things VERY BAD DAY, check out my Disney tab and get caught up on interviews, contests, and more!

How’s the acting?

Of course the parents (Jennifer Garner and Steve Carrell) are great – funny when they need to be and very genuine, but what really impressed me were the kids in the movie.

They all meshed so well together that their characters are very believable! Ed Oxenbould, who plays Alexander, is completely perfect for the role. He has the ‘poor me’ mentality down, but then when things start to turn for the worse for the rest of his family, he knows what counts in the end and portrays that family bond really well.


Kerris Dorsey is phenomenal in her awesome theater-geekyness, trying to be the star of the show at any cost.  Dylan Minnette is the cool teenage boy trying to impress the girl, which in the end he realizes a valuable lesson (trying not to give too much away with this). 🙂

Yeah, but is it funny?

So with all this great acting going on the movie really is funny. There were so many times when I was cracking up while watching this film, and laughing even harder as I thought about taking my seven year old son to see the movie. I know exactly how he will react – he is a little comedian at heart so I KNOW he is going to love every minute of it!


Here, see for yourself:

Yeah, it’s funny. Definitely worth taking the kids to see it!
