Last night I watched Little Miss Sunshine and thought to myself, Meh.
Having a series of "unusual" events happen= not good enough. I mean, yes, I see why one might think that this is "funny" but the movie was just flat.
Partially, I think that the movie makers were striving too hard to be arty and different. Maybe shooting for Garden State- Oh I'm funny, arty, and I have a message about family and failure- but fell very very short.
Maybe I was bored as hell because being broke, driving a beater, having parents who have dreams that supersede their interest in their children, depression, and sexually precocious children are all very real to me. Maybe if I had a silver spoon stuck up my ass I might have found the movie hilarious and moving.
Bitches promised me laughs. I guess they got two of them out of me.It was fine, 3 monkeys. Oscar worthy? No. Worth seeing again? No.
