In many ways, Juno and Little Miss Sunshine both have a lot to answer for. Both films I love, the success of those two films sent studios scurrying to create the next indie hit. Of course when studios try and create something ‘indie’, it just does not work and numerous films fell into the trap of trying to imitate the legitimate charm of the two films mentioned.
The Way, Way Back sees Little Miss Sunshine stars Steve Carrell and Toni Collette seek to recapture that charming vibe. The trailer all looks a bit average until Sam Rockwell rears his awesome head, and brings a seemingly different angle to proceedings. Here’s hoping this film can be a charming and original feeling one aye. I’m keen to check it out after this trailer.

Seems like this one is going to be good. Hope it is, since I love the cast.
Same man, here’s hoping it delivers.
Sam Rockwell is indeed awesome, as are Steve Carell and Toni Collette. I’m a fan of Allison Janney too, as well as actor/writer/director Jim Rash, who’s really funny on the show “Community,” if you ever get a chance to watch that (it’s worth it, at least for the first three seasons). I’m not quite so crazy about some of the other supporting actors in TWWB, but just from the trailer I can tell that Rockwell will make it all worthwhile.
Oh wow, I LOVE Jim Rash in Community and didn’t even know that he was involved in this. NIce! Now I am even more excited.
