Little Miss Sunshine is a spectacular movie, that gained positive reviews when it was released, and what really taught us is to always be authentic. Little Miss Sunshine is a 2006 American tragicomedy road film. Little Miss Sunshine was an overwhelming box office success, earning $101 million. Although known to Comedy Central viewers for many years as a correspondent on the highly rated satirical news program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, at the time Carell was cast for Little Miss Sunshine, he was relatively unknown in Hollywood. The “heroin” Grandpa snorts in the bathroom in the beginning of the movie is actually crushed up Vitamin B tablets.
