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

AlexanderDisney

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom, dad, brother and sister all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.

Steve Carell (“The Way, Way Back,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” the upcoming “Foxcatcher”) and Jennifer Garner (“Dallas Buyers Club,” “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” “Juno”) star as Alexander’s upbeat parents. The veteran performers are joined in the film by a trio of young talent that includes 17-year-old Dylan Minnette (TV’s “Lost,” “Prisoners”) as Alexander’s older brother, Anthony; 16-year-old Kerris Dorsey (TV’s “Ray Donovan,” “Moneyball”) as sister Emily; and 13-year-old Australian native Ed Oxenbould (Oz TV’s “Puberty Blues”), who makes his big-screen feature debut as the film’s title character, Alexander. Twins Zoey and Elise Vargas (“The Neighbors,” “True Blood”) portray baby brother Trevor.    Emmy® winner and Golden Globe® nominee Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) also joins the cast, along with actress/comedian Jennifer Coolidge (“American Pie,” “Legally Blonde,” TV’s “2 Broke Girls”) and actress/singer/author Bella Thorne (“Shake It Up!”).

‘Alexander & The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is out on Disney DVD on the 16th February’
