Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day — A New Live Action Feature Film

posted by Nell Minow

One of our family’s favorite books is the classic Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst, with illustrations by Ray Cruz.  We all identify with poor Alexander, who has gum in his hair, loses his marble down the bathtub drain, lima beans for dinner, a trip to the dentist, and the wrong shoes and pajamas.  There have been two nice movie shorts, one live-action, one animated, with songs by “Annie’s” Charles Strouse.  Now, a feature film is in the works from Disney, reportedly with Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner as Alexander’s parents and Lisa Cholodenko co-writing the script.  That all sounds very promising!
