Sentimental, dark, nearly perfect movie.

A dysfunctional family travels hundreds of miles on their bus, just to enter the daughter in a beauty pageant.

When talking about dysfunctional families, you can't get much better than this one. Little Miss Sunshine is a perfect blend of dark humor, emotion, and sentimental moments. It mixes both the positive and the negative emotions throughout each character, showing what each ind... read more

Overrated, but solid comedy/drama

"There's two kinds of people in this world, there's winners and there's losers. Okay, you know what the difference is? Winners don't give up."

Little Miss Sunshine is ostensibly a road trip movie concerning the realisation that family is family. It's a wholly daunting task to reinvent the family road trip genre in this contemporary era of cinema, especially if the filmmakers are aim... read more

A very good movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I thought I should check it out. Eventually, I wasn’t disappointed and I thought it was a very good movie. Indeed, it is basically a typical quirky indie drama/comedy movie but they managed to create some really touching characters instead of the usual eccentric caricatures. Indeed, it deals with a family and, basically, they are actually all lo... read more

"Watched on: YouTube (Originally watched on DVD in about 2007) Pros: Meh. I guess the "pageant" scenes are semi-entertaining. I enjoyed the Sufjan Stevens music, and I like the... idea of a road trip. Cons: Many scenes are on the dull side; characters are mostly unlikable -- and their various "dysfunctions" grow tiresome fast; the subplot involving Alan Arkin's character is really stupid."

"26.3.2016 Uusintakatselua, koska naisystävälle on hyvä näyttää hyviä elokuvia. Itse asiassa Little Miss Sunshine on onnistunut kestämään aikaa todella hyvin. Elokuvan hahmot ovat kaikki mainioita persoonia, ja lopun moraali-iva on mitä hauskinta katsottavaa. Mustaa huumoriakin tässä oli kosolti."
