Click right here for the all-new trailer to Fox Searchlight’s "Little Miss Sunshine," the dysfunctional family comedy that caused a mini-sensation at this year’s Sundance Film Festival … and not just because it stars Steve Carell.
The plot’s about "a family determined to get their young daughter into the finals of a beauty pageant take a cross-country trip in their VW bus," but I was among the Sundancers who really enjoyed this R-rated ensem-com, so believe me when I say the skimpy synopsis doesn’t do the flick justice.
Co-starring alongside Mr. Carell (who plays a downbeat & suicidal dude) are Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette, Alan Arkin, and the lovable Abigail Breslin as the aspiring beauty queen. "LMS" was directed by longtime video helmers Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris, and written by first-timer Michael Arndt. The flick opens on July 28th.
