Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Review

14 October 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Based on the children's book of the same name, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (which has to win something for being longest movie title of 2014) tells the story of Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould), a put upon 11 year old whose life never goes the way he wants, while for his family (led by parents Steve Carrell and Jennifer Garner) life couldn't be better. With his twelfth birthday looming, the tried and trusted birthday wish gambit comes into play, with Alexander wanting his family to experience one day in his shoes. What follows is a crazy twenty four hours for the Cooper family, where they have to deal with an ever escalating series of over the top problems. With Chuck & Buck and Cedar Rapids under his belt, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day sees director Miguel Arteta go a bit more family friendly, »

Q&A: Indie Helmer Miguel Arteta Goes Studio with ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’

9 October 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miguel Arteta began his feature film directing career in 1997 with “Star Maps,” which was nominated for the Independent Spirit’s Best First Feature Award. He followed with a series of critically acclaimed independent hits, including “Chuck & Buck,” “The Good Girl,” “Youth in Revolt,” and “Cedar Rapids.” Also an established television director, his small screen credits include “Freaks & Geeks,” “Six Feet Under,” “The Office,” “Enlightened,” and “American Horror Story.” His new film is a bit of a departure–a children’s film and a studio comedy. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” stars Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner and based on Judith Viorst’s beloved children’s book, hits theaters Oct. 10.What attracted you to this film?

In the first place, Steve Carell, who I just adore. I had a chance to work with him on “The Office,” and he was attached when I came in. And »

Privilege Parable: Arteta’s Trifling Adaptation of Famed Children’s’ Novel

Perhaps the most curious aspect of the live action Disney version of Judith Viorst’s 1972 children’s story (the first in a series), Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is that it’s helmed by Miguel Arteta, a director known for rather frankly adult material such as Chuck & Buck (2000), The Good Girl (2002), and Cedar Rapids (2011). What initially attracted him to the project, which was originally set to be helmed by Lisa Cholodenko, feels wholly absent from this end product, an extremely watered down version of the complicated human relationships generally on display in Arteta’s films. While one can’t really complain that this is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad film, per se, one shouldn’t be surprised that it’s calibrated specifically for a particular audience, the privileged white familial nuclear unit, »

Film Review: ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’

2 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An average American family becomes a giant human pinata in “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” a passable, tolerable, not unbearable, totally inoffensive adaptation of Judith Viorst’s beloved 1972 children’s book. Made to exacting Disney specifications, this is the sort of busily contrived, one-damned-thing-after-another farce where cars are smashed and Dad gets set on fire, but it all goes down with a spoonful of sugar and a cheery string of studio tie-ins — it’s PG-rated sadism with a smile. With Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner on hand to enliven the proceedings, the comedy at least zips along fast enough to wind up feeling almost shorter than its famous title, which could spark enough recognition among tots and parents to steal a decent-sized portion of the all-ages pie.

“I think I’ll move to Australia,” Alexander noted after the first of several groan-worthy setbacks in Viorst’s book, »

Couple Leaves Waiter $100 Tip for Bad Service: "We've Both Been in Your Shoes"

30 September 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Makenzie Schultz and her husband, Steven, didn't quite have the anniversary dinner they were hoping for. The couple went for sushi in a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, restaurant, but, as Makenzie said in a Facebook post Saturday, their service "sucked." Instead of being upset with their waiter, though, Makenzie and Steven generously tipped the waiter $100 on a $66.65 meal. Yep, even though it took "20 minutes to get water, 40 minutes for an appetizer and over an hour four our entree," the Schultzes paid a 250 percent tip (!) to their overworked waiter. "People all around us were making fun of the restaurant & how bad the service was," explained Makenzie, admitting, "Yeah, it was »

5 Adorable Behind The Scenes Stories From Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

10 September 2014 12:55 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of my favorite books when I was a young kid was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by author Judith Viorst (who I would learn later in life actually grew up in the same town as me). Like many of you, surely, I could easily relate to the story of a boy having an unbelievably bad day, leading to dreams of escaping off to Australia. The book has always stuck with me . so naturally it was a bit surreal when I, along with a small group of other journalists, got to visit the set of the movie adaptation of the story last summer when the production was filming in Los Angeles at the legendary Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio. Directed by Miguel Arteta (Cedar Rapids), the big screen version of the classic children.s book stars newcomer Ed Oxenbould as the 11-year-old Alexander Cooper, who »

Watch: Robin Williams In First Clip For ‘A Merry Friggin’ Christmas’

18 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Today we’ve got the first clip from A Merry Friggin’ Christmas, the last movie that the great Robin Williams filmed before his saddening death, and it echoes a similar vibe to the more indie projects he’d been taking on more recently including a distinct touch of World’S Greatest Dad.

Directed by Community’s Tristram Shapeero, it’s written by Phil Johnston, who’s work includes Wreck-it Ralph and Cedar Rapids. This short clip shows us Mitch (Williams), giving advice to his grandson on alternative treats for Santa after they’ve eaten all the milk and cookies! Here’s your official synopsis:

Boyd Mitchler and his family must spend Christmas with his estranged family of misfits. Upon realizing that he left all his son’s gifts at home, he hits the road with his dad in an attempt to make the 8-hour round trip before sunrise.

Steve Carell Fights a Kangaroo in 'No Good, Very Bad Day' TV Spot

11 August 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last night, the adolescent drivel known as the Teen Choice Awards pandered the most coveted audience in entertainment, and that meant the studios were pushing some of the forthcoming films to the young crowd on the flickering box. Disney decided to push their family comedy Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day with a new TV spot showing off some more ridiculous footage from the film. Unlike the book on which the film is based, it's not just Alexander having a bad day, but his whole family. This looks to be full of slapstick comedy, complete with Steve Carell fighting a kangaroo. Watch? Here's the TV spot for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day from Disney: Watch the full trailer for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day right here.

Mary Lambert confesses in fun lyric video for new song, 'Secrets'

10 July 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There’s a saying that you’re only as sick as your secrets. If that’s the case, then Mary Lambert is very,very healthy. On her new single, “Secrets,” the singer best know for her feature on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” proudly declares all her secrets: she’s bi polar, her family is dysfunctional, sometimes she cries all day, and some less secret ones— she’s overweight and gay. All these confessions are sung over an impossibly jaunty tune as she refreshingly reveals all in the lyric video. “‘Secrets’ might be the first fun song I’ve ever written,” says Lambert. And, indeed, the bouncy track has an irrepressible Katy Perry, “Roar” vibe. She co-wrote the track with Eric Rosse, Benny Cassette and MoZella. Rosee and Cassette are also executive producers on her new album, “Heart On My Sleeve,” out Oct. 14 on Capitol Records. The song is about accepting yourself, »
