Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a very long title

5 second plot: Every day is a bad day for Alexander. His family doesn't seem to understand him. So on his 12th birthday he wishes they would. It's like a Home Alone wish. He doesn't really want bad things to happen to his family, but he just wishes they would know what it feels like. And sure enough, that day his entire family has a (insert title here).

5 second review: It's a very simple family movie without a lot of meaningful content. It's only 70 minutes long (without the end credits) so clearly there wasn't very much to be said. It's a little bit funny to see everything go wrong. It's a shame the movie doesn't exploit its full potential though: it could have been a lot more interesting.
