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…
A perfect blend of dark gallows humor mixed with very heartwarming family moments.
paul dano in this movie is literally me when i was 15 and in my scene phase
I actually didn't hate Lil Miss FUCKER as much as I wanted to, but the biggest problem is how uneven it is.
It tries to be a really depressing drama, a comedy, and quirky bullshit at the same time - it doesn't work.
The characters and story have their peak about halfway through.
The buildup isn't very interesting, and the resolution is forgettable.
Although, the final pageant performance is hilarious, as fucking awkward as it is.
The movie itself didn't shine as much as it could have, and the cast didn't have the best ensemble, but I still enjoyed this movie way more than I thought I ever would.
I'm glad the Academy stopped nominating bullshit like this and Juno.
Bizarre that this was filmed in 2006. Yet it had both Bryan Cranston, and Dean Norris in the same film. Two years before Dean Norris would be hunting down Cranston for being his meth cooking brother.
beautiful, perfect, amazing
After a dinner with friends we decided to revisit the charming "Little Miss Sunshine". The thing that struck me was how wonderful of a character piece this movie was and that is what original drew me to this movie in the first place. It is perfectly cast and wonderfully offbeat. Its a movie about love and family with family of losers. If you have not seen it see it. Great pace, Very funny, and a lot of heart. See it!
frankly this is still one of the purest most beautiful films I've ever watched
also if i made a list of the Most Heartbreaking Moments in Cinema, the scene where dwayne finds out he's colorblind would definitely be in the top five
VAMOS KOMBINAR QUE É UM BELÍSSIMO FILME EIN, O VOVÔ SERÁ PRA SEMPRE MEU HERÓI(NA). FILOSOFIA I HATE EVERYONE DO DWAYNE É SHOW
I'm gonna make this short and sweet because Little Miss Sunshine is one of those movie that you aren't on your phone when your watching it. You are glued to the movie. I couldn't get enough of it. It's one of those feel good movies that keeps you on the edge of you seat.
