5 Great Reasons
1. It has a perfect cast.
2. It's greatly written.
3. Alan Arkin is hilarious in an Oscar-winning performance.
4. The character relationships.
5. Olive's routine.
ya es la cuarta vez que veo esta película y la verdad nunca cansa, excelente y con un mensaje muy valioso. Vale la pena y el soundtrack ni hablar, excelente música pone los de Devotchka. Peliculas independientes que hacen la gran diferencia en comparacion a esas grandes producciones que tienen efectos especiales hasta en la tapa del baño. Little Miss SUNSHINE carece de todos esos elementos y es superior.
Some funny moments, but overall not my cup of tea.
'Oh my God, I'm getting pulled over. Everyone, just pretend to be normal.'
Little Miss Sunshine is a film sharply, and at points aggressively, cynical. Every character is a scathing parody - the self-help guru who needs help, the passive-aggressive teenager, the flippant grandfather and the rest - but it manages to manage its pointedness to create some touching yet dark comedy. The characters are nothing special, and the satirical targets are slightly too easy, but the sentiment is convincing…
A rated R family comedy. Depending on how you take it, you'll either cry or cry laughing.
One of the most dysfunctional families anyone can imagine going on a road trip heading to a child beauty pageant constitutes this film's premise. In order for something like this to work, it was mandatory that the writing were exquisitely brilliant. Screenwriter Michael Arndt's final work was exactly that and that brought as a result, thanks also to a perfectly assembled cast and to a fantastic direction, that Little Miss Sunshine ended up being a contemporary little masterpiece of comedy.…
This Film is like marmite you either love it or you hate it. Personally I loved it, Its that type of film where you have to ‘get’ or enjoy that style of humour. - requires a dry sense of humour. At times it’s quite sarcastic and bringing up old jokes in awkward situations, or it had long uncomfortable silences - if thats not your style or humour I don’t think you can enjoy this film to its full potential.
Love it, one of my favourites
História linda e muito bem executada.
Little Miss Sunshine is an endearing, charming film that entertains from start to finish. A wickedly funny and poignant script, superb performances, a great soundtrack, and one of the best endings in recent memory all contribute it to its charming quality. I love all the characters, even Greg Kinnear's character who slowly grew on me as the film went on. Abigail Breslin is a stand-out, giving one of the best performances I've ever seen from a child actress. Alan Arkin…
Obviously planned or calculated; not spontaneous or natural; labored: a novel with a contrived ending.
There are few films that i regard as endlessly watchable. The films have to be magnificent. Little Miss Sunshine is just that. And more. Anyway, this film is a film which most definitely deserves my seal of endless rewatchability. Heres how they did it:
1. Get a script that has the perfect balance of humour and drama as that will sell the most tickets
2. Find an unknown director and get him to make this film, since it’s cheaper.
