ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY is in theaters today!! Yay! My family was able to watch this movie a bit early so I could share the scoop on it. We loved it! The entire audience was laughing throughout the entire movie. See why with this video clip!

We each have our favorite parts but much of it revolved around the potty. Yes, the potty is a big deal in this movie as Jennifer Garner – Kelly Cooper is launching a new potty book that goes terribly wrong. Watch this clip about her boss’ high expectations about her on the potty. ha!

The funniest clip was when Kelly Cooper is trying to stop the celebrity reading by Dick Van Dyke at a children’s book store. Oh, if I was into movie spoilers, I would love to tell you what happened but I just can’t. You’ll have to see the movie – or hang around my kids who can’t stop talking about this scene! It’s hilarious!


If you’ve read the book, you already know the basics of this movie. Alexander feels misunderstood by his perfect family who never, ever has a bad day. Meanwhile, Alexander seems to have bad days every day. On midnight of his birthday, he makes a wish that his family would have a bad day…and what follows is the absolute TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY ever.


The family went through a failed driver’s ed test, mixed up tux rental, messed up job interview, drunken’ Peter Pan show, toddler trials, and more – all in one day!


There were frustrated to say the least!

I love, love, love how this movie brought together the Cooper family in so many ways. My favorite quote was when Alexander said:good day

There is a lot of truth in that statement that we can all appreciate with our own families. The ending of this movie was fantastic and heart-warming, showing the total love and devotion of family. I won’t give the ending away, you’ll have to see the movie yourself! It’s a must-see for the whole family!
