Description

Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner star in this family comedy based on the children's book by Judith Viorst. Eleven-year-old Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould) has the worst day ever, experiencing one mishap after the other. His dad Ben (Carell), mum Kelly (Garner) and older siblings Anthony (Dylan Minnette) and Emily (Kerris Dorsey) always seem to have sunny dispositions and fail to empathise with his misery. However, when his family find themselves in terrible situations of their own, Alexander begins to understand that to have good days you must also have bad ones. The film co-stars Bella Thorne, Jennifer Coolidge, Megan Mullally and Donald Glover.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"ALEXANDER is a watchable, affable, pretty good, well-done kids’ movie buoyed by a humorous script and talented cast." -- Grade: B
A.V. Club (9 Oct 2014, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[A] sweet, wholesome story about an awkward 11-year-old who endures a rotten 24 hours. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner anchor the swiftly plotted movie as the (mostly) calm-under-pressure parents of Alexander..." -- Grade: B
Entertainment Weekly Staff (8 Oct 2014, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[T]his exercise in schadenfreude is, in the event, surprisingly good-natured and, under Miguel Arteta's fleet direction, seemingly over in the snap of a finger."
Todd McCarthy (2 Oct 2014, )
USA Today
"The movie's appeal is largely due to director Miguel Arteta's light touch, as well as the affability of Steve Carell and the low-key charm of the titular 'tween character, played by Ed Oxenbould."
Claudia Puig (9 Oct 2014, )
Washington Post
"[A] crowd-pleasing comedy and a surprisingly entertaining treat for the whole family."
(9 Oct 2014, )
