    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…

    There's certainly talent here, just not sure its parts are working together as well as they could. Often feels Written, contrived into some preachy cuteness without preaching anything really. Something better is under the surface. [B-]

    Witty, immensely entertaining, off-beat, impeccably performed, flat out hysterical, touching, and even a bit relatable, "Little Miss Sunshine" is not only one of my favorite dramedies of all-time, it's easily one of my all time favorite movies. The cast all around is just so electric, Abigail Breslin truly gives one of the best and most charming child performances I've ever seen, while Alan Arkin just simply steals every one of his scenes. Toni Collete is great, Paul Dano is pretty…

    On release Little Miss Sunshine caught me completely by surprise and a rather pleasant one at that. On subsequent watches it holds up really well and still carrying its emotional weight with it. The story is fundamentally a superb family road movie but not like one you will have seen before.

    We are introduced to the rather dysfunctional Hoover family and regardless of their individual problems they all agree to trek across America in an attempt to get youngest member…

    This film is heart warmingly beautiful.

    The ups and downs of family life all handled very well indeed as you're taken on a rollercoaster of emotions.

    This family sticks together and there is such a feel good factor, you can't help but dance along to Olive's pageant music, Super Freak.

    Sweet and really funny in parts.
