Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is based on the children’s book of the same title, follows Alexander and his family’s crazy and brutal day.

Whether it is baby Trevor eating a dark green highlighter since his pacifier is missing, a dirty diaper bag breaks and tumbles down the stairs, or mom’s promotion is hanging in the balance due to a typo, this household is super nuts, but relatable.

Jennifer Garner plays Kelly Cooper and Steve Carell as husband Ben know parenting is a messy game. What was relatable to Carell was a baby running around without a diaper in the film.

“It’s a time bomb,” Garner interrupted Carell, during a Fandango interview. For Carell, it’s a precursor to what is going to unfold as it does for the Cooper family.

“Life is going to get difficult almost instantly,” Carell said who is a Fommy. He is very involved his kid’s lives like bringing them to school and picking them up and said “I love being dad.”

Garner and her husband work together to get their girls ready in the morning.

“Ben Affleck can do a good ponytail,” Garner said during an interview with the Hallmark Channel.

“It may not have any tangles brushed through, but he can do it. I taught him.”

The Rise of ISIS

“It’s past time for American to hear this truth. By minimizing the challenge,” Jay Sekulow (American Center Law Justice) wrote in his September opinion piece on FoxNews.com.

The world is facing a serious threat in the Middle East with ISIS, a group of terrorists dedicated to mass executions, and by unleashing jihad on the world. This relentless campaign has controlled territories in the Middle East and is a threat to Israel. ISIS’s threat is not just against Israel, it threatens every democratic nation, including the US.

Sekulow believes America needs to stay on high alert and not pacify the enemy with empty words. And like Hamas, they need to be completely eradicated.

In a new book, Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can’t Ignore, Sekulow outlines a strategy with his “Law of War” team with insight on the terror organization’s background, war crimes, and the biggest threat since 9/11. The author, who has appeared at International Criminal Court at The Hague, explains the laws of war, and the reason the Israeli Defense Force and our military have limited power.

“President Obama makes it more likely that Americans will go along with the half-measures he’s proposed as a “strategy” to “degrade and destroy” ISIS.”

According to various reports ISIS could have as much as 40,000 members.
