Little Miss Behind the Times

Guess who just watched Little Miss Sunshine? Turns out the whole world was right - it's a great movie. I laughed and I cried - especially when my laptop started to smell like burnt hair and shut down, causing a 20 minute intermission in my movie-watching. I have a creepy old lady crush on the teen boy in the film. I rarely watch movies alone.

I know I've been remiss with the whole writing here thing. A lot has happened. I say this often. My computer is beginning to smell hot again.

I love you all.

Now you can put on your headphones and listen to a movie while you work. Not the full experience obviously but at least you have an idea and then you can pretend you've seen lots of things. =)

As for the smell...is your fan working? If the fan dies the processor overheats. It can kill your computer.

It's rare when film manages to protray life's true comedy on the screen - when you can identify with the characters. This film does this, and is brilliant. One of my faves.

Ewwww... that movie sucked *big time*
Consider but one of the characters: here's a lil girl who is apparently thrilled about this pageant and knows everything there is to know about them.
And yet somehow, she does that routine at the end - knowing full well (based on what they've told us about her) that it's the entirely *wrong* thing to do? Seriously : Would she do this if she wanted to win?
(this is but one example of what happens when "writers" pull shit off the stock characters shelf labelled "quirky" and "real" then forget to add "plausible".)
The whole film is a lame, pitifully ridiculous North American attempt to give us (and our "dysfunctional" families) a sub group to thumb our noses at. OMG look - these beauty pageant people are more pathetic than us - YEYYYYY! Aren't we great, ya know - with our flaws and all?
Fuck. PLLEEEEEZZZE.

What's the difference between this movie and others that get their rocks off at others expense? At least some have the ability to keep their shit "PLAUSIBLE", regardless of the implications.

Napoleon Dynamite was this movie in reverse and a rock solid, pitch perfect parody of the whole genre. It's characters *knew* they were 'quirky' and felt a whole other level more real then this shit pile does.

Fine and dandy for a film to have "a heart"; but mistaking this cloying, idosyncratic based dungheap as a "heartfelt" lil number has been one of the great marketing ploys of the last few years.
They sold it as chocolate - but it's actually Ex-Lax.

I'd take Little Children over Little Miss Spunshine any day.
*That's* a great little movie... and a hundred times richer.

and uhhh "ps"... can you tell us which "entirely pulled out of the writers ass" loser character you identify with? I can't remember which one was mentally handicapped.

Oh right - the "loser motivational speaker" daddy guy. Ha Ha - he was funny and ain't it ironic like how he was like, you know, a loser when all he wanted to talk about was being a "winner"?
Ha Ha ... yeh, that was ironic wasn't it? Ha Ha. Yeh. Ironic. Ha. Ha. Irony. Ha. It's funny. Ha.

Yawn.

Okay, I stand corrected...maybe not the whole world loved this movie. Jeepers.

At least now you'll understand why some might hate it as passionately as others love it.

...and don't get me started on iPods.

True enough and you make some valid points - so why "anonymous"? And dude, there's just no point in being angry about iPods. You'll only give yourself an ulcer
