A Terrible, not horrible, but no good, very bad short
11 March 2016 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

Yes, I know the book and this short's message is that "Everyone has a bad day sometimes". That is a good moral for children.

The 2014 feature length film was enjoyable. I actually saw that one first before seeing this short.

This short is very bland and forgettable.

This musical consists of only 3 songs and all of them are forgettable and terrible. Not only that, but the singing from the children are just out of tune.

The second number is just pointless. Alexander and his brothers all sing a song as if they were bonding and then they put their hands on top of each other and say "Brothers".

And because this short has ADHD, this moment is completely cast aside as if it never happened.

Also, we never find out why Alexander is obsessed with Australia.
