Review: I saw this movie yesterday, by myself. If there is one thing people find weird it is loners at the movies. Since I go to solo movies all the time ( I see A LOT of movies) so obviously it is not weird to me. However, during the previews, my lonesomeness was deeply disturbing to the two chicks sitting right behind me. Since the theater was basically empty I could clearly hear their every theory of why I was there alone. It was quite hilarious, and I had a hard time keeping my laughter properly muffled.What is weirder than someone sitting solo in the theater watching a movie, while everyone else is in 2's and 3's? The solo someone laughing by his/her lonesome (crying is even worse).

'Sunshine Cleaning' is funny, touching and sweet movie. I totally liked it. The characters are flawed, their life after high school did not turn out exactly as they had planned, they have scars they did not expect, but they also have hope. I would definitely recommend this feel-good film, that totally put a smile on my face.

Grade: 7.5


  1. Glad you liked it - I want to see it soon.

  2. How have I missed this the last few days? Ugh, I'm so losing my mind.

    I want to see this. A good "feel good" movie is hard to find.

    Going to the movies solo is kind of fun, I think - like eating at a restaurant by yourself. It's a nice change of pace once in a while.
