Ignorant Movie Review: Little Miss Sunshine
Response to title: This just has to be sarcastic. I can’t see any way around reading sarcasm into this title. I’m expecting biting social commentary.
Response to curbside poster: I like the yellow VW bus. The peace loving 60’s connotation is almost immediate, and the family(?) chasing after its open side door is a nice visual allusion to the idea of chasing after peace and sunshine.
Response post-credits: Wow, I love this movie. There’s something about seeing a giant canvas Nietzsche mural on a teenager’s wall within the first five minutes of a film that settles me in for Quality entertainment. The movie is definitely a comedy, and it definitely provides biting social commentary (think Ramsey). I don’t personally know anyone to whom I would refrain recommending this movie. I think everyone in Olympia who has the time and financial resources to go to the Capitol Theater over the next couple of nights should go see this movie.

Misery for smiles.
