‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ Trailer: Steve Carell Has a…You Know

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day‘ may be on the most unwieldy titles of any film set for release in 2014, but that’s pretty much the point. Based on Judith Viorst and Ray Cruz’s celebrated children’s book of the same name, the film takes a very simple premise (the title character has a really awful day) and extends it into a big family friendly comedy filled with names like Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner. The first trailer from the film has arrived and we’ll let you decide whether or not it’s an assault on your childhood.

If you’re wondering how director Shawn Levy and writer Rob Lieber extend such a simple premise, the ‘Alexander and the Terrible…’ trailer gives us a clue or two: the young title character isn’t the only one in his family to have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. In fact, this movie looks to be composed of several, terrible horrible, no good, very bad days, each with their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad flavor. We don’t know yet if this will make for an entertaining film, but, hey, there’s something admirable about finding any way to extend such a simple story to feature length.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Disney’s ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another.

But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’ arrives in theaters on October 10, 2014.
