What’s the movie about?
The 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) is the unlucky one of the family. When Alexander tells his family (Jennifer Garner, Steve Carell, Dylan Minette and Kerris Dorsey) about the misadventures of his day, he only encounters incomprehension, because his family couldn’t be better. On the same evening Alexander wishes that his family would also experience one of his typical days – with disastrous consequences, because the next day the life of the Cooper family is already upside down!
