Monday Movies


When 7 year old Olive Hoover (Abigail Breslin) gets a chance to be in the Little Miss Sunshine Beauty Pagaent. The only way that Olive can participate is for the whole dysfunctional family, including  Olive's mother Sheryl Hoover (Toni Collette) and  her brother, Frank (Steve Carrell) who has been released from a mental asylum, her father, (Alan Arkin), who has been kicked out of his retirement village for drug use, Dwayne (Paul Dano) who has taken a vow of silence and Olive's father who is a failed self help guru, to jump into the families old Volkswagen Kombi. Along the way the family has many adventures like the van breaking down and needing to be pushed to start everytime.

This was quite an enjoyable movie and I do think that it is worth seeing for a laugh. The thing that I enjoyed the most about this movie is that it showed that no matter how badly a family might get along, they can band together so to support each othe no matter what the circumstances.
