Such fun! A talented cast of adults and young people make this slapstick comedy totally enjoyable. As per the title, it all revolves around Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) and his family: Dad Ben (Steve Carell), Mom Kelly (Jennifer Garner), older brother Anthony (Dylan Minnette), older sister Emily (Kerris Dorrey), and Baby Trevor (who is played by twin girls, Elise and Zoey Vargas). 408 more words

This big-screen spin turns R. L. Stine’s brand of popular kids’ horror stories into an entertaining comedy with several meta flashes. Instead of adapting one story, director Rob Letterman opts to cram as many of Stine’s creations in as possible, the narrative revolving around Stine (Jack Black) himself as new neighbour Zach (Dylan Minnette) and dim-witted sidekick Champ (Ryan Lee) break into his house and inadvertently unleash every monster he’s ever created. 158 more words
What’s it about?
There are some books that should never be opened. Or at least that’s the premise behind Goosebumps, which follows a teenager who teams up with Stine’s daughter after he opens a book and starts a cascade of big bads being released upon the town. 417 more words
Whilst you might think that the target demographic for the big-screen adaptation of the Goosebumps novels would be strictly children, that’s not entirely true. In fact, as someone who is about to turn to twenty-eight-years old, I can’t help but feel that this was made for me. 415 more words
