4.5 out of 10 Hit the mark
Paula from Dublin, 02 Sep 2010
This was a thoroughly enjoyable movie that really surprised us! Great character development, the story line was easy to follow but had a few twists to keep us interested. Both actresses excelled in their rolls, particularly Amy Adams. She comes across as very genuine & gentle soul but is streaked with flashes of comedy genius! The grandfather/grandson relationship had us in stitches at parts, some well thought out & fantastic dialogue! There are a few sad parts but they only serve to add to the

4.5 out of 10 Quirky and quite good
Denise from Sligo, 02 Dec 2013
Nice little indie-type movie about two girls who go from domestic cleaning to the bigger job of cleaning up crime scenes after a homicide...much better pay, dontcha know... Emily Blunt plays far less 'goody goody' than her recent movies, and it suits her better. I think the father is the older man in "Little Miss Sunshine"? maybe this is a "Sunshine" trilogy that I didn't know about. The boyfriend liked it too.

5 out of 10 Great Film.
Seamus from Monaghan, 02 Apr 2011
Some terrific acting and a great story. It moves along at a nice pace and we get to know each of the characters well so we do care what happens to them. You should watch one of the 'bonus' features which is an interview with two women who do the work featured in Sunshine Cleaning. Very interesting.

3.5 out of 10 .. some folks really do have strange jobs !!
JUSTINE from Galway, 23 Jun 2010
Think 'Little Miss Sunshine' with a much more muted feel good factor. But it was worth a watch. Loved the 'baby shower' scene for the cringe crunch. A great reflection of sisterly relations.
