What a super movie. What great acting. This movie was so funny. So touching. It was great. Saturday night Kenny & Debbie, Abbey, Jeff, Mr. Adam and myself went to see this film. It was unbelievable. I was so entertained by this movie. I think anyone and everyone should see this movie. It's not necessary to see on a large movie size screen, I think the story would be just as effective on dvd. But definitely put this film on your "short list" of movies to see. Through a series of events an entire family end up on a roadtrip from New Mexico to California in a VW Bus. Now to truly understand how this movie pulls from my own life. You must understand I learned to drive a standard on a VW Bus just like the one in this movie. And the scene where they lose the clutch and they have to push the bus to get the car started...that is exactly how it went down with me as well. So damn funny.
I think the message in this film is that both the most wonderful and the most horrible things happen to you/your family/your friends when you least expect it. As the saying goes: "it's the things you don't see coming on a Tuesday afternoon, not the things you worry about and prepare yourself for." The whole movie was about a nutty family (and who doesn't have one of those) and their quest for peace, money, career, harmony & the title "Little Miss Sunshine." You will love every character, you also will bear witness to some amazing acting. I don't want to give away too much of the story, because...well, it's the story that makes this so good. So if you don't know how to impress your date next weekend, go see this. You'll both be glad you did. Great movie.

i too found it hilarious, but also profoundly disturbing. i found their pathos moving even as their misery and dysfunctionality weighed heavily upon me. the theme of disappointment was so pervasive, it made their personal triumphs seem, i don't know, insignificant?

that said, i think it was probably meant to leave the viewew feeling disturbed. that's a sign of a brilliant dark comedy.
