At a lean, mean 81 minutes, Disney's latest live-action family comedy is somewhat shorter than its title. Treading much the same territory as the
films, it stars Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner in the dad and mum roles, and at the core of the chaos is Ed Oxenbould, who plays Alexander, their son. He's just had the day from hell. It's now his 12th birthday and, frustrated by a schoolmate's plan to stage a rival mega-party, he wishes that his family could feel what a worst-ever day feels like too. And, almost magically, they do. Their day descends into a chaos which includes an escaped crocodile, a very failed driving test, a self-destructing school production of
and a highly unfortunate misprint which involves one of the stars of
. In trying to appeal to a broad family audience,
sometimes spreads its comedy a little thin. But it's big-hearted and, ultimately, upbeat. And it should play well to kids aged eight and upwards, and to accompanying adults.
An 11-year-old boy has a day where everything seems to go wrong, but gets no sympathy from his family. He becomes convinced that bad things only ever happen to him, but then his parents, his brother and his sister all suffer terrible days of their own. Family comedy based on Judith Viorst's series of children's books, starring Ed Oxenbould, Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner.
