Little Miss Sunshine

littlemisssunshineA perfectly nice movie about family. Little Miss Sunshine doesn't try too hard, doesn't make too much of itself, and doesn't try to push the comedy or the melancholy too far. Well, perhaps the body-snatching was a bit much, and the Rick James dance finale was outrageous, but I loved it, and so did the apres-turkey audience on the Friday afternoon after the big holiday.
