A nice family movie, but not for young kids because of the brief, mild vulgar talk by the kids themselves. Note: This is Jennifer Garner's first PG movie(I think) and probably her last!

Cute movie.. BUT found the movie a little too busy... and was feeling exhausted (and glad) when it ended.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is horribly good. Meaning: it was awesome! I really enjoyed it and found its message very encouraging and uplifting. : )

A decent family-friendly movie. Several laughs along the way but nothing too memorable.

I recall reading the very short children's book this is based on when I was 7. It is impressive that they've been able to expand that to a full length film and yet still preserve the message and sentiment of the original. Many laughable in retrospect moments. Do NOT be tempted by this successful adaptation to see what was done with Where The Wild Things Are.
