Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day ★★★

Clever script, nicely cast, fun family film. My 4-year old great niece sat through it attentively and announced at the end that there was more in the film than in the book. I sat through it attentively, too. The problem for me was that there really wasn't much grownup subtext there that appealed to anything but the 4-year old in me.
