Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, movie review

I hadn’t seen a good comedy in a while, so figured I’d give this movie a go. The trailers made it look decent.

It delivers what the trailer promises. There are more jokes involved than what are shown in the trailers. So that’s good news. There is a plot, a simple one, but its there. And it will actually leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling.

It’s a good flick to take the kids too. There are a lot of hidden messages and morals, hidden in the story. And well, they aren’t hidden that well, so your kids are bound to “get the message” and enjoy quite a few laughs at the same time.

The acting is kind of lacking… but eh, it’s a comedy. Take the kids and go get a laugh. If you’re an adult… you may not enjoy it as much. I alter my expectations depending on the genre of movie, so for what this was sold to me as, it met. I enjoyed it.
