Synopsis:
Take a hilarious ride with the Hoovers, one of the most endearingly fractured families in comedy history. Father Richard (Greg Kinnear) is desperately trying to sell his motivational success programme... with no success. Meanwhile, "pro-honesty" mom Sheryl (Toni Collette) lends support to her eccentric family, including her depressed brother (Steve Carell), fresh out of the hospital after being jilted by his lover. Then there are the younger Hoovers - the seven-year-old, would-be beauty queen Olive (Abigail Breslin) and Dwayne (Paul Dano), a Nietzsche-reading teen who has taken a vow of silence.
Topping off the family is the foul-mouthed grandfather (Alan Arkin), whose outrageous behaviour recently got him evicted from his retirement home. When Olive is invited to compete in the "Little Miss Sunshine" pageant in fat-off California, the family piles into their rusted-out VW bus to rally behind her - with riotously funny results.

Great Fun - Little Miss Sunshine review by JP

Marvellous. You cannot help but love this film with its disastrously quirky family and their van. From a frankly ludicrous premise it takes ever sillier turns, to the satisfyingly cringemaking finale. And if you see some of the plot twists coming over the horizon, it doesn't seem to matter. You just have longer to wonder if they're really going to pull it off. Making full use of a small budget, you can see they all had fun making this film. It's feelgood, it's loopy, it's the road movie to end the genre but it's highly recommended.

A fun film to watch. Well acted by all, including the minors, and full of humour, both dark and more light-hearted. All round excellent entertainment and well worth watching.
