today during class something happened. My friend got there late and so missed the beginning of it so, once she…
Little Miss Sunshine
Everyone just pretend to be normal.
Little Miss Sunshine is a comedy about a family of six who are all having a mental breakdown at the same time. To ease their mental lows they decide to take a cross country road trip to a “Little Miss Sunshine” contest that their daughter has qualified for. An Academy Award winning comedy with memorable performances from its all actors.
A bittersweet ray of sunshine caught in a yellow van filled with actors who have rarely been better.
It also has one of the best dance routines ever put to film.
There's a lot more to say about this film, but in the end it will always boil down to this:
Watch it, embrace it, love it.
And that I did.
You know what? Fuck beauty contests.
The 2006 indie darling not only holds up 7 years later but is probably better then most comedies coming out today. It's a deceivingly colorful, lighthearted black comedy that takes an honest approach on how families that have already had "life experiences" deal with attempted suicide, drug use, depression and individual delusionment.
The cast couldn't have possibly been better across the board with Alan Arkin and Steve Carell possibly stealing the show. Arkin is able to give the loud attention stealing performance as the crazy yet brutally honest grand father while Carell gives a surprising great nuanced performance as a suicidal gay scholar.
At the center of it all of course you have 10 year old Abigail Breslin as Olive Hoover who is the personification of young innocence. The manner they take the piss out of beauty pageants at the end of this film is simply brilliant.
"You do what you love, and fuck the rest."
Little Miss Sunshine is a unique little indie film, which shines in its humour and emotional poignancy. An evidently smaller-budget film, with a top-notch cast - it is one of those films that never seems to get old despite the number of times you may watch it. It popped up in my free movie box, and I couldn't stop myself from pressing play.
A story of a dysfunctional family, stemming from the suicidal uncle, the grandpa who snorts heroin, to the mute, angry brother - the film brings you on a touching story, exploring the different relationships and experiences of each character. It not only addresses some discomforting messages, regarding beauty…
I do not condone of sexualizing little girls in beauty pageants or strip clubs.
A little girl stripping at a beauty pageant (as long as she keeps her clothes on) is just hilarious to me.
Jam-packed with laughs and memorable moments from start to finish.
A father whose every sentence consists of the words winners and losers and gives motivational speech to just a class of seven.
A mother who thinks it is right for her seven yer old to know her uncle's disturbing story.
A brother who has taken a vow of silence because of his realization of Friedrich Nietzsche.
An uncle who attempted suicide because his lover's lover was given an award.
A Grandpa who snorts heroin, teaches his grand daughter nasty moves, tells his grand son to fuck a lot of women, but has the heart of gold to support his son when he loses (Alan Arkin is awesome is this).
A daughter who looks nerdy but believes she is a beauty…
This is one of my favourite films because it feels like it would fit into the It's Always Sunny episode where Frank hosts a beauty pageant
Oh it's been too long.
Little Miss Sunshine is endearing, charming and just a squirm-inducingly happy movie. Paul Dano is fantastic as always, Steve Carell is actually a really really great actor in serious roles (and especially bittersweet) roles like this, Greg Kinnear does a top job in seamlessy arcing from the douchebag, impossible-to-please dad to a really proud father without changing the motives that drive his character, and Abigail Breslin just got it spot on as Olive, like I just wanted to give her a high five and tell her she did a great job.
I've missed watching movies. Cause sometimes they're just as fun as this.
A touching story about love and family.
This movie put me in such a great mood!
really fun roadtrip-family movie. Funny and odd characters. Worth watching. It was even funny on the second time and I actually gave it half star more than on the first go......
I'd say that this movie is your go-to low-risk but very well done Indie-Comedy.
A (kinda) average family with amusing characters and entertaining dynamics. Going on a crazy road trip with lots of little storylines brewing.
Dealing with expected and unexpected events in expected but also unexpected ways.
Pretty harmless, but very entertaining.
i would die for this movie!
Is it weird that it kind of felt like a PTA and, Coen Brothers crossover?
i can't tell if this was really cute or really sad but i know for a fact that i liked it a lot
i like the way this shit looks
