Has anyone seen this yet?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0449059/

It stars Abigail Breslin as Olive, a young girl who was chosen to compete in the Little Miss Sunshine beauty contest in California. Her family (Greg Kinnear as her father, Richard, a motivational speaker for a 9-step program that he can't seem to sell to a publishing company; Toni Collette as her mother, Sheryl; Alan Arkin as her grandfather, a drug addict and self-confessed sexaholic; Paul Dano as her brother, Dwayne, who took a vow of silence; and Steve Carrell as her suicidal, gay uncle Frank) joins her along for the ride, and, needless to say, hilarity ensues.

I saw this last night, and it literally had me - and the audience - in tears from not only laughter, but also poignancy. The ending scene where Olive finally gets to compete and show her "moves" that grandfather taught her is just hilarious. Without a doubt, this is the best movie of 2006.

Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 93%: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/little_miss_sunshine/

Ooh yeah, I'm not sure when the general release is. I had to go to my little indie theater in town to see it - it wasn't at any of the Regals or AMCs.

My attention span is very low today.

I saw the previews as well... I want to see it, but it's not playing anywhere near me.
