ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY

Alexander's day begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by more calamities. Though he finds little sympathy from his family and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him, his mom, dad, brother, and sister all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. -- IMDB

Despite the critics being down on this little movie, I quite enjoyed it. It's a great family film - and devoid of sex, farts, and other gutter human often found in much comedy nowadays. (There is a bit of rude humour including some reckless behaviour and language.) Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner, as husband and wife, make a great pair. The kids put in some solid supporting roles. And there's a good message. The similarity to the movie LIAR LIAR has been noted, but the differences are great enough for me to not make that connection myself. I recommend this for a family outing.
