Everything I read about Little Miss Sunshine convinced me that I didn't want to see it. However, people kept on telling me how good it was, so eventually I got round to it on Saturday night. Now, the people who recommended it to me were right in saying that the reviews and the blurb on the back of the DVD were not representative of the film at all, which was a good thing.

However, the film was another demonstration of me not having a sense of humour when it comes to comedy - I didn't find it remotely funny. Luckily, I did think it was really good, which is kind of weird. Normally with comedies, I don't find them funny and thus don't enjoy them, particularly when the humour is very broad because I usually find it offensive or unpleasant. Little Miss Sunshine, on the other hand, struck me as a very effective family drama, with lots of good characterisation and a satisfyingly heartwarming conclusion.

I don't know what it says about me, though, that the only characters I remotely liked were the suicidal uncle and the misanthropic brother.
