    Please see it. I can't imagine any type of person who wouldn't like this movie. Intelligently written, very funny, heartwarming, insightful.. all that, and some really great filming too.

    I had a lot of hype for it, which backlashed before it came out and I lowered my expectations, but it really exceded my greatest hopes for it.

    What a lovely little movie. People are billing it as more than it is, but what it is is pretty good.

    I was actually going to mention this movie in the "Movies You're Dying to See" thread but...Great little movie. There wasn't a character I didn't love, and the VW Bus's horn. That was one of the funnier things I've seen in a long time.

    Definitely hilarious. Funniest movie I've seen all year.

    There was something about this movie, I can't really explain it well, but so many things in the movie wouldn't normally get me, but somehow, everything lines up just right, and I can't help but laugh.

    Very funny movie. Interesting look at the idea that all you ever really have is family. I recommend seeing it.

    Well, it's 101 minutes, so it's pretty much standard length. It's just that it has a sort of intimate, unconstructed (to appropriate a clothing term) feel to it.

    just saw it. loved it. laughed hard, and shed a couple tears too (cuz i'm a modern kind of guy).

    steve carrell was awesome, as was alan arkin. the nietzshe (how the fuck do you spell it) kid was good too, excellent show of teenage disdain.

    the 'superfreak' number was rather inspired, taking a page from the napoleon dynamite book.

    Just saw it last night.
    The pageant contestants were a really disturbing commentary on US culture. Reminded me of Bennett Ramsey girl.
    Sweet movie overall.

    I saw it last night too. Another thumbs up from me.

    Loved the music by Devotchka.
