Where's Olive?

"Little Miss Sunshine" is an American family road comedy that shatters the mold. Brazenly satirical and yet deeply human, the film introduces audiences to one of the most endearingly fractured families in recent cinema history: the Hoovers, whose trip to a pre-pubescent beauty pageant results not only in comic mayhem but in death, transformation and a moving look at the surprising rewards of being losers in a winning-crazed culture. A runaway hit at the Sundance Film Festival, where it played to standing ovations, the film strikes a nerve with everyone who's ever been awestruck by how their muddled families seem to make it after all.

A truly uplifting film. Will make you laugh out-loud and cheer on the hopeless Hoover family throughout. A dysfunctional unit who manage to laugh at life's absurdities. Brilliant!

An amazing cast, sharp witty script and fantastic story combine to create one of the funniest and at times saddest films of this year. Olivia is a 7 year old girl who has just been told she has won... Read more

This film is great and has a bit of dark humour about it - so not your typical comedy.

I found little amusing or entertaining in this disfunctional family and their long dreary drive in the family van to Los Angeles. Not my kind of film and for me a waste of time even if it did receive two Academy awards.

It has its moments but despite the critics raves I couldnt really warm to this movie - particularly any of its characters. To me it seemed too much like the family out of Malcolm in the Middle does... Read more

I really enjoyed this fim it was very funny in parts also very moving loved the story of this odd family and their trip to California the daughters dance scene at the end was wonderful

What a cliche movie. Cock-eyed family acheives something other than they sought. It's childish - and besides, 'Goodbye Pork Pie' was funnier, more ridiculous and at a fraction of the production budget!!!... Read more

Excellent indie hit that surprises you all the way. Abigail Breslin is such an unlikely heroine that you can't resist her. It's very different, fresh, funny and ultimately extremely uplifting. I loved it. Greg Kinnear is terrific as usual.
