Rode Hard And Put Away Wet

my God, where do these days go?

Brilliant! This has been a good year for movies, but as of this weekend, my favorite so far is Little Miss Sunshine.

Imagine, if you will, a movie that has intelligent writing, positive character development, and downright guffaw-inducing comedy. I know what you're saying... "In Hollywood? Come on, John. Surely you jest." Well I'm here to tell you that such an animal does exist. Yes, Virginia, there is good filmmaking!

Steve Carrell is brilliant. Toni Collette is fantastic. Alan Arkin is legendary. Greg Kinnear doesn't screw it up. And the kids... well, they're the stars of the thing.

Talledega Nights was funny - very funny, but Little Miss Sunshine was drop-dead classic. Go see it. Let's see if we can really drum up some support for this thing. Write your Congressman!

i'm all over your blog like stank on a monkey!
yes. yes! that's all i can say for this movie! i was on a date that was doomed from the beginning, but i suffered through it for the sake of this movie. the tears burst from my face when olive put her arm around her brother and put her head on his shoulder and in like 5 seconds he agrees to get back in the "bus." and why does steve carrell run like that?! fantastic!
