Tags » Alan Arkin


This movie’s got more Oscar winners and nominees than most, so I can’t quite figure out how I’ve never heard of this movie before. Alan Arkin plays a creepy cashier who’s obsessed with Paul Walker, who plays a cop who’s crazy-jealous over his super hot girlfriend, played by Penelope Cruz, who thinks she may be pregnant with her crazy-jealous boyfriend’s baby and she’s feeling so insecure she confides in a lonely woman played by Susan Sarandon, who’s completely alone for the holidays other than her comatose mother and a complete stranger she meets while visiting another patient, played by Robin Williams, who’s an ex-priest having a crisis of faith. 186 more words

A Look Back: Little Miss Sunshine

“Everyone, just pretend to be normal.”

That’s the order given to the Hoover clan in “Little Miss Sunshine,” when their VW bus is pulled over en route to a kid’s beauty pageant (long story), and from what we have already seen of these people, we know it will be a tall order, to put it mildly. 478 more words
