Little Miss Sunshine

Yesterday Beth and I went to see Little Miss Sunshine. Wow! This is the single funniest movie I’ve seen in years. It’s up there with South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut; Clerks; and There’s Something About Mary. (It’s completely different from those movies, and never goes for the silly, teenage, gross-out humor those three are known for. It’s just that those are the only other movies I can think of where I laughed so hard tears were rolling out of my eyes.) If there’s any justice in Hollywood, Little Miss Sunshine will win the Best Picture Oscar in a landslide, along with every acting and writing award there is. There hasn’t been a comedy this good in a really long, long time. It is simply perfect. Don’t wait for the video release. Go see this movie now.

    They certainly aren’t advertising it very much. It feels like the movie is withering on the vine, unknown and unloved.

    I’ll take the wifey to see it this week!

    I saw it when it released in Toronto and I just love it. Got my parents to see it, some friends to see it… it’s great.

    I’m not exactly sure how the movie industry works on movies like this… I guess it’s technically an “independant” film, and not really in super wide release… I guess to cut down costs, and make the bottom line better. I don’t know… I had to go to a small theatre that gets the artsy movies to see it.

    It opened up a bit better last week, but still not “wide” as I would call it.

    And yeah, there hasn’t been a lot of advertising or hype over the movie… once again, I guess to cut down on the costs.

    I haven’t seen it yet, but I will. Per alex, I have seen TV commercials for it quite a bit, but the commercials are all pretty bad. The only things you can learn from the commercials are that there are odd characters and that there is a yellow VW bus.

    I will probably see it this week too, if I can get the time.
