ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY Has Steve Carell, Donald Glover, and a Kangaroo

What happens when you take a popular children’s book, set it in modern times (because #blessed), and throw in a couple wild animals, including Steve Carell, because why the heck not? You get Disney’s trailer for Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day — a familial comedy of errors and a new film set to be released by the Mouse House on October 10, 2014.

Following Carell into the film’s world of utter nuttery are Jennifer Garner, Dylan Minnette, Kerris Dorsey, Donald Glover, Megan Mullally, Jennifer Coolidge, and Bella Thorne. And based on the source material, everyone involved will find themselves in increasing precarious and not-at-all fun times. It’s a family affair of the most terrible variety, in addition to a veritable menagerie of tomfoolery, featuring not only kangaroos but a guinea pig (we think?) and an alligator. Gags!

But the shenanigans don’t stop there. There’s G-rated situational humor out the wazoo in this teaser, featuring trips, kicks, flaming notebooks and periodic tables, crying babies, marker-eating babies, confused babies, mortifying parental walk-ins, driver’s license testing, car accidents, a Wreck-It Ralph reference, pirate blouses in a hibachi restaurant, lots and lots of falling things, and — aww, shucks — a young hero wise beyond his years (spoiler alert: it’s Alexander).

Did any of you read Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day as a kid? What’s the worst hilarious thing that’s happened to you recently? Let us know in the comments section — because we all deserve to laugh at each other’s misfortune, right?

    Eh, I don’t  know. It could be cute, but it seems like it strays from the original source material a lot.

    So they took a lovely story for little kids, about learning to deal with the troubles of being a little kid, threw in a bunch of adult actors as the stars, laced it with teen/adult humor, and took out everything that made it a story for little kids about being a little kid, and still have the nerve to call the movie “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”?

    They should be ashamed of themselves. This movie clearly has nothing at all to do with the story of the book and it just trying to milk as much cash as possible from the unsuspecting parents of children who like the actual book. A blatant cash grab with no respect for the original source material.
