I guess my family was dysfunctional because I found this to be a normal family having issues! Very funny movie.

Filled with sardonic surprises and and a few shocks, but plenty of laughs.
Little Miss Sunshine takes you on a road trip in a VW bus with a bad starter. A road trip I took in real life when my little sister had a VW bug. Great gags and some tear jerky moments as well as great music, must love Rick James.

Many have called this family “dysfunctional” but it can be argued that these are the “normal” folks just a bit under stress. There is the matriarch of the tribe in grandpa (Alan Arkin) who is so delightfully crude and vulgar, a reject from a retirement home and does not give a whit what the others think. The teenage boy is nearly catatonic…. What teenage boy isn’t at some point in his young life? Then Steve Carrell is the brother with suicidal tendencies after his lover rejects him. About the only sane one is the young girl, Olive, well played by Abigail Breslin, who has big dreams of superstardom and for whom this trek is put into play. Heading to California to enter the Little Miss Sunshine Contest they are crammed together in an old VW bus with problems of it’s own. Hilarious results just kinda happen and who’s family wouldn’t probably react the same way?

I did not like this movie. I thought it was boring, this dysfunctional family was not funny to me. After reading so many good reviews, I must have missed it.

Interesting but Lame Ending
Jiang Xueqin | Toronto, Canada | 07/19/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Little Miss Sunshine" is about a perfectly dysfunctional family who for whatever reason decide to drive from New Mexico to California so that the young daughter Olive may participate in a competition where seven-year old girls must prove themselves perfect. The father is trying to make it as a motivational speaker, and each time he speaks he sounds like an infomercial. The grandfather is an aggressive cocaine addict who decides he cannot end his life until he offends everyone on the planet. The son takes a vow of silence, and his silence, along with all those push-ups and chin-ups, makes him violent and angry all the time. The uncle is the nation's foremost Proust scholar, and decides to emulate the great writer by screwing up his life and almost taking it. Even the family van has temper tantrums and erratic behavior.

"Little Miss Sunshine" is supposed to be funny and quirky, but it's really disturbing and annoying. We are captive in the family van as this irksome family goes on the road, and it's like we're being held hostage to their eccentricities. "Little Miss Sunshine" is just too much "The Office" meets "Family Ties.""
