The Disney movie Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day will be released in theaters on October 10. Of course as we head Back to School next week, Alexander has some tips for how your child scan avoid a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad School Year.

I have to say, the first tip is a good one. I’ve made that mistake with my daughter’s alarm a few times. Fortunately, we have a couple of years before I have to worry about my daughter texting in class. Fortunately I think the AAPS dinner menus avoid the “Mystery” on the menu. I know a few meals were described differently than in past years and my daughter is hoping they are improved recipes from last year.

The movie synopsis provided by the studio is below:

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) 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 mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) 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. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl,” “Cedar Rapids,” “Youth in Revolt”) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, is a 21 Laps Entertainment/Jim Henson Company production. The film hits theaters nationwide Oct. 10, 2014.
