Movie Review: Little Miss Sunshine

I’d been looking forward to this movie for a while. It got very good reviews, across the board. (I think—I didn’t research it or anything. I wasn’t that interested.)

Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite as good as I’d been hoping. Don’t get me wrong; it was good. Especially the acting; everyone in the movie was great, with special mention to Steve Carell, who proved that he is a great actor, when he’s not being over the top.

Unfortunately, being over the top is exactly the problem I had with the movie; things would be going great, and I’d be enjoying the writing and the acting and the everything else that movies do, and then something unbelievable would happen. If they had made some parts just a bit more believable, this could have been a really great movie. As it is, it’s still good, just not as good as it could have been.

In my humble opinion.
