    Synopsis


    Little Miss Sunshine
    When a pudgy, bespectacled seven-year-old, Olive (Abigail Breslin), voices her desire to take home the coveted Little Miss Sunshine crown at an upcoming beauty pageant, her wildly dysfunctional family sets out on an interstate road trip to ensure her a clear shot at realizing her dreams in former music video directorial team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' quirky feature debut, starring Greg Kinnear, Steve Carell, and Toni Collette. Despite early career success as an outspoken motivational speaker, family patriarch Richard (Kinnear) continues to cling to his "Refuse to Lose" philosophy, much to the chagrin of his increasingly annoyed spouse, Sheryl (Collette). Add into the mix a Nietzsche-reading teenage son (Paul Dano) who has taken a vow of silence until he finds his fate as a fighter pilot; a horny, heroin-happy grandfather (Alan Arkin) with a penchant for creative profanity; and a suicidal genius (Carell) and Proust scholar still reeling about losing both his male lover and his MacArthur Foundation genius grant -- and the stage is set for a road trip in which sanity is sure to take the back seat. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      LMS was the start of the true underdog-nominations at the Oscars. Giving love and appreciation for the little low-budget darling with a lot of heart was a wonderful step for the Academy and showcases a wonderful ensemble cast with a sweet story. Alan Arkin took home Oscar good for his turn as the no-nonsense grandpa!

      Awesome Purchase

      Over all, this movie was a good pick. It will make you laugh. There is a sad moment in it but otherwise it is humorous. It will not make you bored or lose interest. It's good for a snuggly night with a loved one or even with the girls. Guys will enjoy it as well. Good for family viewing. I'd say the young youngsters might not get all the jokes but I think they would be able to still watch it.

      The Perfect Dysfunctional Family

      An absolutely brilliantly written film that has the perfect cast. You will ride the emotional rollercoaster along with this family of misfits. Arkin is an absolute riot and Carrell gives a strong performance outside of the comedic realm he is so well known for. A must see movie.

      Better Each Time

      I did not enjoy this movie the first time i watched it, but the second time i found it much better. It follows a dysfunctional family and their quest to a Little Miss Sunshine pageant, and is more dry humor than laugh-out-loud comedy. Never did i laugh during this movie, but i definitely broke into a smile numerous times

      A great small film about a motley family that struggles to stick together and what it means to not give up on a dream. Also, full of great humanity and humor. The car horn gag makes me laugh every time.

      I Love and adore this movie so much. A great movie about a somewhat dysfunctional family trying to get the youngest member to the 'Little Miss Sunshine' contest, but some bumps on the road happen along the way.

      My daughter wanted to get this movie. If you have a twisted sense of humor, you will like this movie. Every family member has their own quirky personality. It's a good watch

      This is a older movie that we have not seen and was delighted when I was able to purchase it from BestBuy at a good price so my wife and I can watch it anytime we want.
