Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair and things go downhill from there in this family comedy, based on a children’s book by Judith Viorst. From lima beans for dinner to teachers who do not understand him, Alexander faces a range of frustrations. And things are not going much better for the rest of his family. While his brother flunks his driving test spectacularly, his father has an equally unsuccessful time at a job interview, and his baby sibling has possibly swallowed toxic ink. Alexander is determined that the day will not get the better of them, offering his family the philosophical advice: “You’ve just got to have the bad days so you can love the good days even more.”
