Little Miss Sunshine with Greg Kinnear
Little Miss Sunshine with Abigail Breslin and Greg Kinnear is the story of a family that takes their daughter cross-country in an effort to get her into the finals of a beauty pageant. The family seems to have plenty of issues on a daily basis--these problems really make the movie. So, in the end, it's an adventure about a dysfunctional family that tries to come together so the daughter can achieve pageant success. And, they actually come together so she can succeed.
- The laughs are non-stop thanks to problem after problem with the family
- Like many families, despite their issues, they came together when it counted
- The film is a little slow at times
Overall, Little Miss Sunshine is a brilliant film--there's a reason it received so much attention at the Oscars. It's not a completely original concept, but it's done very well. It's definitely worth watching.
