I laughed so much

I didn't think I would laugh at what I was laughing at!
Perhaps I shouldn't have!
It was black and dark on the surface, but essentially was about a family coming together for the sake of the youngest member.
You ended up laughing out loud at a corpse being stolen from a hospital,the same corpse being hidden from a highway patrolman with an apeitite for dirty mags,an old man using the most profane language and encouraging both the use of heroin and underage sex..and loads more. Don't miss this
Little Miss Sunshine

A totally hilarious and entertaining movie. Great drama comedy telling the story of a totally messed up family's attempt to get their daughter to a beauty pageant cross country in a 70s VW bus and the disasters that unfold along the way. Sounds terrible, but surprisingly enough it's the complete opposite - it's hilarious, touching and endearing. Great acting. Nominated for Best Picture & won 2 Acadamy awards. Highly recommended. Not for children!
Dark themes covered in entertaining comedy

If you heard that a movie concerned a drug-addicted grandparent, almost-bankrupt father, suicidal uncle and troubled teen, not to mention children's beauty pageants, you'd probably run for cover - but don't!!! It took a while to get into this, but once we did, we thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a highly entertaining movie which will leave you with something to think about after the credits roll.
Little Miss - Big Hit!

An amazing film. It's warm, witty and wonderful. Story centres on 7yr old Olivia who is entered into a beauty pageant and her marvellously dysfunctional family. There's a gay suicidal Uncle, financially pressed bickering parents, drug addict Grandfather and a brother who is deliberately mute! I thought this was brilliant, funny and warm without being sentimental. You gotta see it!

This is an "indie' gem. Olive has made the final of Little Miss Sunshine beauty pagent in California so the entire, and apparently, dysfunctional family embark on a road trip to reach the contest.
With plenty of incident along the way, the trip proves eventful to say the least, culminating in the final showstopping performance by Olive in the pagent.
