First Look: Steve Carell's 'Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day'

January 2, 2014

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

This fall, Steve Carell gets into family film mode with the adaptation of the beloved children's book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. While the book focuses on a terrible day in the life of a kid, the film adaptation spreads the bad day to the entire family. Carell and Jennifer Garner lead the family as the mother and father, with relatively unknown child actor Ed Oxenbould taking the titular lead who wakes up with gum stuck in his hair. A first look photo shows the family in the middle of their horrible day as something seems to have gotten inside their house. Look!

Here's the first photo from Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day:

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is directed by Miguel Arteta (Cedar Rapids) and written by first-time scribe Rob Lieber. The film 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 finds little sympathy from his family, he soon learns that he's not alone when his brother, sister, mom and dad all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Megan Mullally, Jennifer Coolidge and more also star in the film which 20th Century Fox releases October 10th.

    With a title like that they're basically inviting film critics to make fun of it.

      Its just the same name as the book.... what would bring critics to make fun of a title of something that has been around since 1972. Most critics probably read this book as children. So i think your wrong, i guess is what im saying.
