Little Miss Sunshine

I just got back from it. It was only screening at a small theatre in Dallas so I'm not sure how readily available it is for everything to see, but it was really great.

Extremely well acted, and as a Steve Carell fan I was obviously thrilled. Toni Collette and Greg Kinnear are great as usual, and Alan Arkin really steals all his scenes.

It was hilarious and heartfelt, and definitely the best comedy I've seen all year (best movie is still V For Vendetta). You definitely ought to see it.

Thinking of seeing Talladega Nights? See this instead, it's much funnier.

I've read but positive reviews for this movie. Are there any plans for a wider release? The cast is made up of some of my favorite actors, so I've really been looking forward to seeing it but it's not screening anywhere in crummy ol' Tucson.

Edit: Nevermind. I just found out it's going to be released here on the 18th. Can't wait! Looking forward to hearing DeVotchKa played in the movie too

Release dates are listed here: http://www2.foxsearchlight.com/littl...ease_schedule/

I missed the screening closest to me, oh well, I'll just Netflix it when it comes out.

and yes, V is most definitely the best movie of the year so far, but The Prestige hasn't come out yet

(or Snakes on a Planeeeee)

I saw this movie yesterday and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Being an "Office" fan I went to see it for Steve Carell, but I was blown away by everyone's performance. I laughed, and got a bit teary-eyed, and I'm sure I'm going to rave about this movie to everyone I know.

Did I mention I've never seen Toni Collette make a bad film?

Oh man, I saw a screening of this tonight and LOVED it. Like really LOVED it.

Steve Carrell

Haha, afterwards they had a news crew there to get reactions and the first question they asked was "What was your favorite line?" The guy stood there stunned before some girl behind him yelled "FUCK THAT!"

I hope it was live.

i saw this tonight. what a great, great, funny movie.

i loved how uncle frank kept reminding everyone how he was the most renowned proust scholar in the u.s. while pushing the van.

and olive's introduction to her talent portion of the beauty pageant:

olive: i'd like to dedicate this to my grandpa, who taught me all of my moves.
sleazy pageant host: that's sweet, honey. where's your grandpa?
olive: in the trunk of our car.


it's a smart, well-written, hilarious movie with heart. if you have the opportunity to go see it, i'd totally recommend it.
