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

When Ben gets his shirt sleeves caught on fire, no one in the entire packed restaurant offers to help or shows any sign of alarm, only his family. Everyone else sat back and stared. Realistically, there would be reactions and an employee at the restaurant would be held liable to getting a fire extinguisher. There also is no emotion when the situation is handled by Ben finally soaking his arms in the fish tank. The people show no morals or concern if he was okay. They act as if there wasn't anything to worry about. See more »
Steve Carrell might be in with an Oscar chance for his performance in Foxcatcher, but he has tarnished his chances by starring in this thoughtless drivel. Surely for families, this may appeal to some children, but from start to finish I was astounded by how poor the acting was. Sure I'm not expecting Shakespearean theatrics, but I like to know I'm watching a story, and not just some over-paid people amusing themselves on cameras more expensive than my car.
I guess to review this I have to say it was very bad, no good, no horrible, no TERRIBLE, NO A MONSTROSITY!!! A GHASTLY ABOMINATION FROM THE BLACK ABYSS!!! But as they often do for me, production values are a saving grace, even if only a minor one 2 out of 10
