Took me forever to post, but here were some random bits of fun from the free screening of Little Miss Sunshine. My cup of “what the fuck?” runnethed over.
First off, I caught some guy there knitting a doily. Maybe it was meant to be a scarf…time will indeed tell…but it looked like the makings of a damn doily.
And … SCENE!
Diana Barry: Myra Gillis had 37 doilies when she got married, and I’m determined to have AT LEAST as many as she had.
Anne Shirley: I suppose it would be impossible to keep house with only 36 doilies. But I assure you, Mr. Wright, Diana will be the sweetest little homemaker in the world… so long as you can afford to let her keep up with the Gillises.
This next scene starts with two girls trying to find seats. One scopes out the area: “Who’s sitting here? Whose bag is this?” Nobody knows. “Well, I’m sitting here!” she proclaims loudly, as if ready to put up a fight. Everyone shrugs noncommittally. Her friend tosses the bag over the railing for dramatic effect. It lands with a painful thud. IPod? Movie/band/comic book geek comes back and proceeds to sarcastically thank them for taking his seat. Girls are both dressed in white, cleavage popping. This was scary because they were like, twelve. The Lolitas were both unnecessarily snappy, and pretended that they couldn’t understand why former band geek is pissed that his shit was tossed. “Wow…okay, we’ll just go find other seats…” Yeah, on the fucking double, what’s the hold up? Why are you still standing here causing drama? Put your tits back in your shirts! Caught Lolita #1 in the bathroom later re-braiding her pigtails and making sure her cleavage was prominently displayed. Vomit.
Was totally unprepared for the amount of people waiting for the film at least an hour and a half beforehand. Andy and I got in line at 6:10 and the line had already looped.
Some kid asks Andy and I how we were doing, talks about how he heard about the free screening, in the middle of MY story, he loses interest in conversation. Well. Then I hear him and his friend talking about all the things that they can do now that they are 18. “I can smoke, I can drive, I can date…” WOW.
Oh, the movie was brilliant. Loved Alan Arkin, Steve Carrell, Paul Dano, Toni Collette. It was absolutely hilarious…many of the scenes caught Andy and I off guard. There was a lot of leg grabbing, wide eye looks at each other and laugh moments. Note to self: Andy grabs particularly hard.
