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

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.

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.

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.
enjoy now, regret later
