“Little Miss Sunshine” (2006) is a very weird movie. Funny, but weird. Taken out of context, it is like trying to explain a fart joke to your grandmother. Let’s see… there’s a foul-mouthed, drug-addicted grandpa who is working on a “secret routine” with his granddaughter in the basement, a suicidal homosexual college professor, and a teenage boy who hates everyone and refuses to speak. There are other characters, but you get the point. Oh, did I mention they drive several hours with grandpa’s dead body stuffed in the back of a VW microbus? Funny! Some things are better left unexplained.
