Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
« on: August 04, 2012, 07:34:24 am »

I finally got around to watching Little Miss Sunshine after all these years. I thought the movie was good, but it never lived up to all the awesome reviews it's gotten over the years. It's not the perfect movie everyone makes it out to be. But it was definitely enjoyable, which is about family, as dysfunctional as they may be. When I say dysfunctional that's exactly what they are. You have a Teenager (Paul Dano) who is a self-mute, an Uncle (Steve Carell) who tried to commit suicide, a Grandfather (Alan Arkin) who abuses  h e r o i n , a Father (Greg Kinnear) looking to push a self-help course, a Mother (Toni Collette) who lets her kids do what they want and a little Girl (Abigail Breslin) who enters pageants.

The entire movie falls into the Road Trip genre as they make their way out to the Little Miss Sunshine competition. So naturally hilarity ensues from one misadventure to the next. Everything leading up to the ending is nothing extraordinary. But what makes the ending work so well is that during the entire movie we are kept in the dark about what the girls routine is. And let me tell ya, I found it to be both funny and touching at the same time because they incorporated what they had been preaching all along: Family.

This definitely worth a Rent, especially if you like quirky films like this.

I agree, it wasn't great, but a very enjoyable unique little film.
