48. Little Miss Sunshine

A dysfunctional family embark on a road trip together to make sure their youngest child can take part in the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant.

What Tierna thinks: “Loved this. It follows an unlikely beauty pageant candidate & her dysfunctional family on their quest to fulfil some dreams. The many hurdles & shortcomings along the road make for an hilarious yet sometimes emotional story that I’m happy to have watched. If you’re sceptical, just give it a go as at the very least, it should make you smile. I’ll give this a nine out of ten.”

What Tom thinks: “I knew Tierna would like this film.  I saw it in the cinema on its release and its a good film.  It’s a feel good kinda film… which I usually don’t like as I’m such a miserable sod… but it works.  The strong cast is part of the reason for this (it’s good to see Steve Carrell giving an understated performance for once).  It’s not going to change your life or re-invent the genre, but it’s a good film and I’ll give it an eight out of ten.
