This film was my sunshine, my only sunshine. It made me happy when skies were ... whatever they were yesterday. Black, at night, leastways. The movie was so great and everyone in it was so great. Well-acted and hilarious and nuanced and touching. Steven Anthony Michael Carell's best role since Slimmin' Down With Steve; maybe even Oscar-worthy. Actually, I will single out everyone by name: Kinnear, Collette, Double A, son, little girl -- my god, little girl! -- and the scene-stealing pageant emcee. Ahhh, Stan Grossman was Halcolm in the Middle aka Tim Whatley, thanks IMDB. What else to say. Not much when you're talking about something this good; it was just such a delight. It made me want to love my family. Haha j/k, guys, I already do. :)

Just caught it tonight. An absolutely wonderful film. Genuinely funny - like "Sideways", this is the rare "good" movie that will generate actual honest-to-goodness laughs - and with the strongest cast you'll find this summer. The best movie of 2006 so far, hands down. It's opening wide this weekend - you really oughta check it out.

You aren't kidding about the emcee. GOD that guy was good.

No need to reiterate what's already been said. Ridiculously good movie. Needed more black people. But then, I say that about "Roots".

I thought it was an awfully long buildup to a joke. A joke that began as one of the funniest things to be projected onto screens this year...but which also ultimately dragged on too long.

Very ironic that I saw this in Denver the weekend Jon Benet's alleged killer took over the news...

One of the funniest things I've witnessed in a long time was realizing that she was not dancing to "Can't Touch This", but rather...

There was no chance of Grandpa living through that movie.

I'll be damned if seeing them push start the bus wasn't funny every single time (bonus points for the getaway from the hospital).

Those contestants were CREEPY looking. It made me feel a little icky, since of course the pageants are exploitative and the movie made fun of that, but they also cast those girls and dressed & made them up like that, so they're a big exploitative too.

I keep telling myself that I dislike Greg Kinnear, and then I see this, or The Matador, and I can't remember why. There are other actors that I like more than him, but he's very good at what he does.



Idle hand spend time at the genitals, and you know how God hates that.

Sorry, I don't know where the time went. This list isn't as robust as usual - will you even notice? Do your own research if a title intrigues you. Tuesday's tally (as of Monday):
