Little Miss Sunshine Synopsis

Little Miss Sunshine is the story of the dysfunctional Hoover family, taking a cross-country trip in a VW bus to get their young daughter into the finals of a beauty pageant.


Little Miss Sunshine was a smash at Sundance, and is getting buzz as this yearís Lost in Translation. Of course calling it this yearís Lost in Translation implies that a Lost in Translation comes along every year, and that just isnít so.

The potential for something pretty cool is there though; the cast alone is good enough to justify a lot of interest in the project. Steve Carell can do no wrong and besides, itís about time he branched out and away from big money blockbusters to a weird indie flick. Heíll make his money in the sequel to Bruce Almighty called Evan Almighty; here heís trying something smaller and more intimate. Think of it as ďThe OfficeĒ in a little yellow Volkswagen bus.

On paper, it sounds strange. But Disney Channelís Phineas and Ferb is, hands down, the most clever animated program on television these days. The series experimented with a longer-form story with the recent TV movie Across the Second Dimension, but this will be the first foray into theatrical programming.

Has the movie moved up to big Warner Bros., or to a different distributor entirely? Production Weekly doesn't seem to be saying. More importantly, are Bullock and Carell the right people for the role?
