ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY is a US comedy about a family having a day where everything goes wrong for them.

Language

Mild bad language is used when Alexander says, "I had a crap day". There is also a use of 'oh my god', and a moment when Alexander's mother stubs her toe and almost swears, shouting "Mmmmmmother!"

Sex

There are some mild sex references, including to teenagers "making out". There is a scene in which a group of male strippers are about to perform at a children's party, but the parents rush up to them shouting "PG! PG!"; the men instantly understand and adapt their routine so they dance in a non-sexual way. Alexander is humiliated at school when someone superimposes his head onto a series of photos of women, including one in a swimsuit, one in a bikini, and one wearing stockings and suspenders. The effect is comic rather than sexual.
