Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Synopsis
Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his brother, sister, mom and dad all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one.

I do This Rotten Week every Sunday, and most times can’t wait to sink my teeth into what’s about to hit screens. But man, this week took some effort. It wasn’t that the films look all bad (some do), but rather just boring. Four flicks hit the screen, but it looks like there is very little to get too excited for. We’ve got bad days, addictions, bloodsuckers and judges.

We were looking forward to The Kids Are All Right director Lisa Cholodenko's take on Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Sadly, after nearly two years being bonded to the project and some studio shuffling, Cholodenko walked away last month. But Disney has found a pretty stellar replacement in Miguel Arteta.

For those unfamiliar with the story, which was published back in 1972, it follows a young redheaded boy named Alexander who is having a pretty rotten day. He wakes up to discover that the gum he was chewing has ended up in his hair, his cereal box is missing its prize, his sweater falls in the sink, he trips over his skateboard...the list goes on and on.

Lisa Cholodenko Set For The Abstinence Teacher, Gearing Up For Wild With Reese Witherspoon Lisa Cholodenko Set For The Abstinence Teacher, Gearing Up For Wild With Reese Witherspoon
Writer-director Lisa Cholodenko is rightly heralded for her ability to wring comedy and drama from unlikely but still plausible situations, like her Oscar-nominated dramedy The Kids Are All Right that centered on the fallout of two teens seeking out the sperm donor who impregnated their lesbian moms. This makes Cholodenko an exemplary pick to helm the movie adaptation of Tom Perrotta's deeply funny and humane novel The Abstinence Teacher.

Based on the book by Judith Viorst, Alexander is about a young boy who is experiencing the worst 24 hours of his life. He wakes up with gum in his hair, trips on his skateboard, doesn't get a prize in his cereal box, gets yelled at by his teacher...and it just keeps going on and on. He constantly says that he is just going to pack everything up and move to Australia, but at the end of the story his mother ensures him that some days are just like that, "even in Australia."

Lisa Cholodenko Could Direct Alexander's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Lisa Cholodenko Could Direct Alexander's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
If memory serves Fox has been attempting to make the movie based on the book for years now, but apparently Alexander isn't the only one facing a bunch of hurdles in this case. Given that there are two other Alexander books in the series Variety speculates that this could be a hit like the studio's own Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise
