Reviews:
"[T]his exercise in schadenfreude is, in the event, surprisingly good-natured and, under Miguel Arteta's fleet direction, seemingly over in the snap of a finger." - 10/02/2014 Hollywood Reporter


"ALEXANDER is a watchable, affable, pretty good, well-done kidsÂ’ movie buoyed by a humorous script and talented cast." -- Grade: B - 10/09/2014 A.V. Club


"[A] sweet, wholesome story about an awkward 11-year-old who endures a rotten 24 hours. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner anchor the swiftly plotted movie as the (mostly) calm-under-pressure parents of Alexander..." -- Grade: B - 10/08/2014 Entertainment Weekly


"The movie's appeal is largely due to director Miguel Arteta's light touch, as well as the affability of Steve Carell and the low-key charm of the titular 'tween character, played by Ed Oxenbould." - 10/09/2014 USA Today


"[A] crowd-pleasing comedy and a surprisingly entertaining treat for the whole family." - 10/09/2014 Washington Post


"This very loose adaptation of Judith Viorst's 1972 children's book finds its strengths in the way that it has been updated for 2014." - 12/01/2014 Sight and Sound
