Geggy Saw this movie last night. Damn hilarious. I'm still laughing today about the porno mag and the cop part when kinnear was pissed off at carroll about the guy nudie mag. Also kinnear said something along the line of, "Let me regain my conscious first."

Overall, def a fun movie.

BlueOatmeal I saw the movie and I liked just about everything the grandpa said. When he died I was pretty sad.

But after I finished watching the movie I really couldn't figure out what the point of the story was. If there was some moral or something it totally went over my head. Maybe I'm dumb or maybe the movie sucked. I don't know

Oh yeah, Buns and Ammo was funny.

I think we've all been battered by the overused "Homosexual English Scholar who's suicidal pecimism contrasts the obnoxiously optimistic and goal oriented brother in law" Character far too much.

The creepiness of the beauty pagents was completely intentional, because they are freak shows. When you called the girl pot bellied you hit the nail on the head because the whole point was that she was suppose to be the complete antithesis to the typical beauty pageant plastic doll that were in the competition.

I think it's completely respectable to not like this movie, because of the moderately unearned ending and the choppy character development, but it's hard to go along side with not liking it just because it's popular.

ArrowX I liked this movie. Mainly because it reminds me of my own family.

GADZOOKS It's a movie, not an ideology, jesus christ.

But if you like, we will all hate this movie if you ask REALLY nicely.

Black Flag j you seem particularly apt to not getting things

DuFresne Sometimes the general opinion is the right one.
Jan 31st, 2007 10:15 PM
J. Tithonus Pednaud I would watch death.
I haven't seen Everything is Illuminated.
I just really don't get the mass appeal of Little Miss.
Regardless, just a single opinion anyway and I'm just surprised the folks on this forum support the general opinion.

Dire Flamingo Okay. Penaud if you were forced to watch Everything is Illuminated, Little Miss Sunshine, or death, which would you pick?
You could go for Everything is Illuminated. It had the dude from Gogol Bordello in it.

J. Tithonus Pednaud Who the fuck is Tithouse?

Meh, you is all crazy. Sheep, a bunch of sheep I tells ya.

Anyway, I didn't care for the pedophilic undertones. I've worked with far too many kids messed up by that sort of thing.

FartinMowler Tithouse has a different kind of humor

J. Tithonus Pednaud Wow. I can't believe what I'm reading in this thread. The movie was filled with one dimensional character cards and tired cliches. Not only that, its fucking creepy and sad.

DuFresne In terms of tone and mood, it was one of the most original films I've seen in a long time. Not so much for plot though. It's a dry version of Vacation, like Gadzooks said.
Jan 30th, 2007 07:33 AM
GADZOOKS This movie was fantastic. But I have to agree that I didn't like the dead grandpa thing because that's something a faggot like Clark Griswald would do (and he did).

Chevy Chase sucks and so do his fans.

executioneer j. phillips when are these t-shirts going to be available on you website
Jan 29th, 2007 10:37 PM
theapportioner The dead grandpa thing was really dumb, but I liked it a lot, on the whole.

Esuohlim Little Miss Sunshine was the first DVD movie I bought since I found Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure in a bargain bin in 2003.
