‘Little Miss Sunshine’ is huge

January 24, 2006 | celebrity | editor | 0 Comments

The Sundance Film Festival hit full stride over the weekend, and Fox 411 says that the heat so far has been for the black comedy ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ starring Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette, Alan Arkin and Steve Carell. Friday it set the record for highest price ever paid to buy an indie at Sundance when FOX Searchlight bought it for nearly $12 million. Made by first time feature directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton and screenwriter Michael Arndt, the flick is described as ‘National Lampoon’s Summer Vacation’ meets Jon Benet Ramsey. Says 411:

“Audiences here have literally lost their minds over ‘Sunshine’. So far the two big screenings on Friday night and Saturday morning produced extended, spontaneous standing ovations. Such explosions of praise are rare at Sundance, where even the best films are met with a little cheering and some scattered bravos, at most.”

I could have reported on this first hand, but I’m way to cool to go to overhyped meat markets like Sundance. I have way too much street cred for that. I’m ‘Bad to the Bone’, as you probably noticed by my black silk jacket with ‘Bad to the Bone’ in fancy gold stiching on the back.

By the way, these pictures of Catherine Bell at Sundance have nothing to do with anything. She’s not in the movie. She probably saw the movie though, and I figure that’s pretty good too.
