Not getting it alert

"Anna Nimouse" -- an actress writing under a nom de plume -- has a b*tch session on National Review about Little Miss Sunshine.

It's baffling that NRO chose to print this rant.

Little Miss Sunshine is a hilarious demolition of the beauty culture and the children's pageant set. It's a reality play in a lot of ways -- there are broken people in the world, and each of the family members except little Olive (Oscar nominee Abigail Breslin) have had their dreams shattered in some fashion. But ultimately, the dysfunctional people in the dysfunctional family come together to work as a family. That is the final and most crucial message of the film.

Demerits to NRO for posting (and paying for) Nimouse's screed.
