Just saw this movie over the weekend, wondering if anyone else caught it.
Basically about a dysfunctional family including
a grandfather who swears, likes porn and snorts heroine,
a father who is a failed motivational speaker because his own teachings don't really work,
a mother who is probably going to have a nervous breakdown,
an uncle who is a gay suicidal genius,
a son who is dumb (not talking) by choice,
and a daughter who wants to win the little miss sunshine beauty pageant but is kinda fat and wears huge glasses...
And what happens when they all go on a road trip.
Anyway this movie is hilarious in that non hollywoodish sort of way. It is also dramatic and has it's "lessons". It won a whole bunch of film festival awards, and stars Steve Carell as the suicidal uncle. To me it was like a family movie for adults, and i highly recommend it (if you don't feel like seeing Nick Cage stuck under the World Trade Center...though I'm not insulting that movie, after all it is directed by Oliver Stone).
