Alexander's day begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by more calamities. However, he finds little sympathy from his family and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him, his mom, dad, brother and sister - who all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
For 12 year old Alexander Cooper, everyday is a bad day. And his family thinks he's being silly because they never have a bad day. On the day before his 12th birthday party, he learns that another boy is having a party of his own and everyone is going to it. And another kid punks him online. So at midnight of his birthday, he wishes that his whole family can have a bad day. And things for the whole family go bad, his mom's car is broken so they have to share a car, his sister has a cold and has to go on stage, his older brother, who's hoping to get his driver's license and to bring his girlfriend to the prom, has to deal with his girlfriend's snootiness and fails to get his license, his mom has a crisis at work which could cost her her job, and his dad who has a job interview has to bring his younger brother with him but because his pacifier is broken he can't stop crying. Alex feels responsible.Written by
Throughout the movie, Emily sings "You Can Fly" from Peter Pan (1953). This song is only featured in the Walt Disney cartoon, not the conventional stage musical of the same story, which has "I'm Flying" instead. See more »
When Anthony is taking his driving test, there's an interior shot of the dashboard that shows the gear selector all the way up in the Park position while he is supposedly driving (right after the driving instructor yells "keep your eyes on the road"). See more »
I went in expecting this comedy to deliver at least fun and laughs to enjoy but, alas, it fell extremely short on almost every aspect of story, comedy and character developments. Who ever did the casting should not have done so. Either that or somebody must have decided to pay up on favors.
The beginning was predictable as was the plot as was the final ending. You know a film is bad when the kids and parents both seem restless at many points during the film. This film lacked substance and creative material not to mention a brief and simple title for average movie goers.
