Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014) - reviewed by George

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
