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.

This is another great performance by Carell and is is a great road-trip adventure movie. All of the characters have their faults in this, but they grow as the road trip goes on. It is funny where it needs to be and sad where it should be. ---Spoiler--- When the young man finds out he is color blind, which will prevent him from becoming a fighter pilot, is an amazing scene with a lot of power. It hurt me to see this kid be so upset. I think the actor did a good job performing the scene which could not have survived on writing alone.

Little Miss Sunshine is a hilariously funny and human comedy, one that manages to juxtapose the laughs with truly impactful moments. The ensemble cast portray a variety of fractured family members that somehow find bonding over a cross-country beauty pageant road trip. The film has such a wonderful understanding of the contrasting character motivations and struggles that its climactic third act is one of the more successful half hours in comedy in recent memory.

An enjoyable dark comedy involving a hardworking mother Sheryl Hoover (Toni Collette), a scholar Frank (Steve Carell), an idealistic speaker Richard (Greg Kinnear), Dwayne (Paul Dano), a war veteran Edwin (Alan Arkin) and his grand daughter Olive (Abigail Breslin) who was qualified for a beauty contest. The cinematography was breath taking, performances were believable and screenplay was good. One of the best lines from Frank - "Anyway, he, uh, he gets down to the end of his life, and he looks back and decides that all those years he suffered, those were the best years of his life, 'cause they made him who he was. All those years he was happy? You know, total waste. Didn't learn a thing." Sheryl - ""We have to let Olive be Olive."

Pleasant indie comedy, with a family that put the 'fun' in dysfunctional.

Sometimes it takes the whole family pushing along to get life into gear. Despite some coarse characters, this is a very endearing movie with several hilarious moments. Great soundtrack and cinematography-excellent imagery and symbolism.

This is my favorite comedy ever. I love the way the filmmakers show how the family changes over the course of the trip. A very well done film with lovely characters. Be sure you let Little Miss Sunshine brighten up your day. I know it will. This is truly a great film.

Honestly one of the best films ever made, "Little Miss Sunshine" is a dark comedy unlike any dark comedy. It trusts the audience to believe that families are indeed as dysfunctional as they seem to be. Taking a positive, optimistic view towards suicide, cocaine abuse, beauty pageants, prejudice, and dysfunctional families in general, this movie changed my life. Highly HIGHLY recommended.

One of the cutest movies I've ever seen. Abigail Breslin charms you to death in this movie.
