Clare Pfeiffer Ramsey
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Sentimental low points and contrived idiosyncrasies aside, Little Miss Sunshine still boasts wonderful performances, a cheeky sense of humor and an original story.

Shared Darkness

An achingly deliberately madcap family adventure that skates by thinly on the collective charms of its ensemble cast.

Apollo Guide

While the screenplay is impressive and deserving of its recognition, it is Alan Arkin's performance-of-a-lifetime that separates this from other well-written small movies.

Harmless enough as passable road movies go, but I can't help but wish directors of films like these would grow some damn balls.

Boston Phoenix

Like little kids spouting dirty words in certain comedies, this film from first-time directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris undermines the subversive with the self-conscious. But it's still funny.

...mediocre black comedy.

This inspirational, hilariously sad dysfunctional-family-road-trip dramedy offers absolutely everything -- except pretension.

Sacramento News & Review

A few touching and surprising moments aside, it all feels a little prefab, with family dysfunction as the indie version of a high concept.

Eye for Film

Writer Michael Arndt has cleverly captured the bribery and corruption which lie at the heart of most families.

The chaotic dinner scene pops like syncopated jazz, setting the tone for a warm, funny film that has more smiles than belly laughs.

Charming, moving, warm and brilliantly hysterical, Little Miss Sunshine is easily the funniest thing I have seen in a theater in years.

A cheap Sisyphean metaphor literally drives the thing: at first played for laughs, it's recycled to the point of nausea.

Ride along to dysfunction in quirky indie comedy.

A hilariously caustic package that makes its ultimate uplift genuinely feel-good instead of insufferably saccharine.

Anton Bitel

a family road movie brimming with spot-on performances, hilarious situations, and plenty of good feeling - and it treats its comic characters with a rare affection.

The film is part of an emerging trend that taps into the very real and urgent concerns of working people in increasingly pauperized Bush's America.
