Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (1989)
This is a live action version of the popular children's book. If you were expecting a cartoon you will be surprised. The script is derived directly from the book though. The movie deftly reveals Alexander's perspective of a terrible, horrible day with the actual events. Thus, we can understand his feelings but clearly see none of it is so, so bad. Casting is excellent -- Alexander narrates his woeful tale very well. A sweet film -- see it if you can!! You will understand kids more too. Plus the short movie ends on a subtle note. This is a welcome change from some phony happy ending. Bravo to the makers of this charming tale!
