Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day played well on movie theater screens (see October 11, 2014 blog). I am delighted to say that its Blu-Ray and Digital HD release plays equally well on home theaters and smaller screens.
Official Disney Synopsis:
Disney?s heartwarming comedy will have your entire family laughing out loud. Based on the best-selling book, it follows the exploits of Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life and wonders if bad things only happen to him. But he discovers he?s not alone when his dad (Steve Carell), mom (Jennifer Garner) and family live through their own terrible ? and hilarious ? day. It will tickle everyone?s funny bone and warm their hearts as they discover how even on rotten days, families can grow closer.

My Opinion Only:
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, very Bad Day’s positive messages told in flashback, are true to life . Its slap-stick humor in adversity shows bad things happen to everyone but along with them comes a brighter side. Its theme–the importance of family–highlights this bright family caper. Hubby says I have no sense of humor. ‘Taint true. I laughed all the way through Alexander…Bad Day. Because I myself dislike mean-spirited, I appreciated this movie as good-hearted fun. Dick Van Dyke’s short but sweet cameo is a delectable topping to a tasty cake.
