86 - Little Miss Sunshine

The second stop in The Contrarians Summer Road Trip is a movie that celebrates quite possibly the worst parenting in the world. Listen to Alex and Julio as they try to figure out what’s more harmful to Abigail Breslin in LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE: a creepy Child Beauty Pageant or her toxic family! Is it okay for Greg Kinnear to be absolved from his sins just for doing a silly dance at the end? Does anyone buy that Miss California actually eats ice cream? And why is Toni Collette still together with her monster of a husband?

- Alex loved the new CHILD’S PLAY.

- Julio waited too long to plus LIFE IN PIECES and now it’s been cancelled. Watch it anyway!
