What's the Name of That Movie?

Arrgh, you know the one! There's this dysfunctional family, and their little daughter gets invited to come compete in the "Little Miss Sunshine" beauty pageant? I think that guy who used to host Talk Soup is in it? They take a Volkswagen van across the country to go to the pageant. And then at the end, the girl does this crazy routine at the "Little Miss Sunshine" show?

It's driving me crazy!

OH.. I know which one you're talking about... It's "Firestarter" Great movie!

Shawn said...

No, no, no...that had that girl from the movie with the bike riding alien. This one has the girl from the movie with the water-hating aliens.

Carl said...

Intimate Portrait of Tyra Banks?

Phillipia said...

You're kidding, right?:)
That is one of my favorite movies...first saw it with the fam on Christmas day a couple years ago...I love the grandpa...

Wendy said...

Is that the one with the lady who pretends to be a midget but isn't who keeps yelling "don't go into the light"?

Patty said...

Ummmm...isn't the name of the movie "Little Miss Sunshine"? Has Abigail Breslin as the little girl, Greg Kinnear from Talk Soup as the Dad, and Steve Carrell as the uncle, plus various other great actors?

Shawn said...

Carl: No, but good try!

Phillipia: Yeah, it was pretty good. I wouldn't mind watching it again, if only I could remember the name of it.

Wendy: Hmmm...no, but I've seen that one, too! It had the guy from the show about the football coach. I can't remember the name of that show, either.

Patty: Never heard of it.

Man this must stem from a conversation with mom or something...

Winky Twinky said...

Okay I'm lost.... somebody fill me in!!!

Da Old Man said...

I'm pretty sure it is Rocky III. The Talk Soup guy plays Clubber Lang.

Dalton J. Fox said...

So, the guy from Talk Soup plays a little girl who participates in the Little Miss Sunshine pageant? Awesome. They must've had a great make-up department to make a grown man look like a little girl. I need to see this flick.

Didn't Kato, of O.J. Simpson fame, host Soup a time or two. That's gotta be a clue, right?

Shawn said...

Knightmeds: Ummm, no comment.

Winky: It's okay, just go with the flow.

DOM: That's the other Talk Soup guy.

Dalton: Yeah, it's better than Benjamin Button!

Anon: I don't know, but I'm all for more Kato Kaelin references on this blog.

David said...

I think that is Gidget Gets A Rash. That's why they need to dash across the desert to get some special cream from the pharmacy so she can compete without constantly scratching her privates during the contest - a move certain to deduct points.

lilaphase said...

Is that the one where the little girl keeps seeing dead people and she keeps saying, "I see dead people" and then she enters the Little Miss Sunshine Pageant with all the other dead people and the Talk Soup guy is really a dead person at the end ?

Margo said...

Valley of the Dolls? Herbie the Love Bug? There's a Girl in My Soup? Miss Not Congenial at All?

Heather Cherry said...

"Planet of the Vampires?"

Her Artichoke Heart said...

"Sunshine Cleaning"? Oh wait, no, that's the new one...

nipsy said...

Starting to sound more like "Children under the Stairs" then "Little Miss Sunshine"...LOL

Shawn said...

David: I've seen a Gidget movie, and it wasn't nearly as entertaining as the one you cite.

lilaphase: No that's that damn movie that ripped off Horsedance.

Margo: I don't think so...but I'm probably going to rent "There's a Girl In My Soup".

Heather: Still haven't gotten around to watching that...

Her Artichoke Heart: Yeah, that's a new quirky independent comedy, this is an older quirky independent comedy.

Nipsy: Do you mean "The People Under the Stairs?" If so, that was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Kirsten said...

I think it's the Abe Vigoda vehicle, "Annie"

freetheunicorns said...

I think it was E.T.

alantru said...

Debbie Does Dallas...

Max said...

That's that movie every quotes, right? Is it Battleship Potemkin?

Shawn said...

Kirsten: Sal Tessio? That traitor.

freetheunicorns: No, but that just reminded me. I have some Reese's Pieces in the refrigerator.

Alantru: A definite classic, but I don't think so.

Max: No, it didn't have anything to do with Pokemon.

Little Miss Sunshine said...

I just got the weirdest call from my agent. He said I needed to come over and read this blog, but I don't get it. Why do I care anything about oceanography?

Heather Cherry said...

I love how many people didn't get this post.

P.S. You keep your Reese's Pieces in the fridge?

Phillipia said...

The fridge is the only place for Reese's Pieces - well except when they are in your hand heading for your mouth....

Shawn said...

Little Miss Sunshine: No, wait! Dammit! That's it, I'm not going to see anymore of your movies.

Heather: I'm more surprised at the amount of people who DO get ANY of my posts.

And Phillipia speaks for me in matters of delicious candy.

Heather Cherry said...

Hm... I wonder what that says about me?

The Acorn King said...

I think it's funny (sarcasm) that the creator of "Little Miss Sunshine," just came out with an unrelated movie called "Sunshine Cleaning." Can't they come out with a movie title that doesn't include "sunshine" in the title?!

Dog Breath said...

Wasn't there a porno called "Little Miss Sucks Mine"?

Shawn said...

Heather: Well, you know...

Acorn King: If it's just two and then out, then it's strangely unoriginal. If they make every film for their entire career have the name "sunshine" in it, then that would be kind of cool.

Dog Breath: If there isn't, there should be.

christophpissedoff said...

Do you remember old school Talk Soup... that show ranks high on my top 10 all time T.V. shows...
"Goooo Mooonkey, yeeeaaaahhhhh. Suck that lollipop. Yeah monkey yeah."

Shawn said...

It was great stuff. Although, I'm quite a fan of The Soup these days with Joel McHale. It's pretty damn funny.
