    You remember how, in school, there was always that one kid who screwed things up for everyone. Like, he threw something at the bus driver so you got taken back to school, or he kept talking so the teacher gave everyone a pop quiz. Well, in this movie, that role is played by Paul Dano. He gives one of the worst performances in a movie here, and drags this film down from a 4-4.5 star film to a 3 star…

    I LOVE this movie. An absolutely brilliant piece of art. It made me laugh and cry. I gotta give special recognition to the performances by Steve Carell, Alan Arkin, and Greg Ninnear. Abigail Breslin was also fantastic as Olive, one of the most lovable characters in all of cinema. This quirky film addresses mental illness, sexuality, self-image, death, and the unconditional love of family in a fresh and entertaining way. Perhaps my favorite movie of all time.

    Little Miss Sunshine is one of those movies that it is hard to find any bad in it, am not giving it the Perfect rating because I don't think it's up that level but this movie is brilliant.

    Ten minutes into the film, I was preparing myself for a cynical and even dark movie about a dysfunctional family, the first scenes having referenced suicide, vow of silences and a terrible 9-step programme. Oh boy was I wrong. Yes, Little Miss Sunshine does address these issues, but it does so with such heart and compassion. And crazy crazy humour. The film had me in stitches throughout, and the finale brought tears of laughter to my eyes.

    Steve Carrell was…

    The reason that I wanted to watch this film in the first place is because the meaning behind it is beauty isn't defined by your looks. I think was great to have a perky unusual family set for this film. A son that doesn't speak, a brother that tried to kill himself, a dad who is all about winning and not losing, a grandad who is on heroin, a mum who just wants the best for her kids and then…

    Is there a way not to like this? I think there isn't. Every minute in this film is just lovely. Steve Carrell is great, Abigail Breslin is lovely, Alan Arkin is fantastic, basicly everyone is! Also Walter and Hank? HELL YEAH!

    Little Miss Sunshine is such a damn good film. The cast are all excellent, although I think this may be the best performance I've seen Steve Carell give, and Abigail Breslin also holds her own against some impressive names. Nice soundtrack. Wonderful story. I love this film.

    “I’ve still got nazi bullets in my ass.”

    A delightful experience filled with charming, funny, heartfelt and charismatic performances across the board.

    The chemistry between the characters was utterly wonderful, I just loved watching them interact with one an other. It was fantastic.

    The film blends drama and comedy perfectly together, and that just makes it even more delightful to watch.

    Unfortunately, the film got a little bit silly and cliche towards the 80 minute mark, and that made me…

    Michael Arndt's screenplay for the stellar comedy Little Miss Sunshine is tightly constructed, and full of the kinds of characters talented actors kill to portray. All of the characters and themes are economically but patiently set up in a funny 20-minute dinner sequence that opens the movie. Throughout the film, characters perform what seem to be throwaway actions that actually pay off later in the film. The fact that first-time directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris know when to keep…
