Thank You For Smoking - Enjoyable, funny, clever movie. It's about a cigarette company's lobbyist, it's a definate must-see, in my opinion.
Aaron Eckhart stars as Nick Naylor, a sexy, charismatic, spin-doctor for Big Tobacco who'll fight to protect America's right to smoke - even if it kills him - while still remaining a role model for his 12-year-old son.
When he incurs the wrath of a senator bent on snuffing out cigarettes, Nick's power of "filtering the truth" will be put to the test. As Nick say, "if you want an easy job, go work for the Red Cross."
Little Miss Sunshine - Dark, Dry comedy. I like Steve Carrell, so I had to check it out. It's about a dysfunctional family trying to get across the country to enter their little girl in a beauty pagent. A lot more funny and entertaining than it sounds :P
Take a hilarious ride with the Hoovers, one of the most endearingly fractured families in comedy history.
Father Richard is deperately trying to sell his motivational success program... with no success. Meanwhile, "pro-honesty" mom Sheryl lends support to her eccentric family, including her depressed brother, fresh out of the hospital after being jilted by his lover. Then there are the younger Hoovers - the 7 year old, would-be beauty queen, Olive, and Dwayne, a Nietzsche-reading teen who has taken a vow of silence. Topping off the family is the foul-mouthed grandfather, whose outrageous behavior recently got him evicted from his retirement home.
When Olive is invited to compete in the "Little Miss Sunshine" pageant in far-off California, the family piles into their rusted-out VW bus to rally behind her-- with riotously funny results.
The Pursuit of Happyness - Good family film. My dad brought me to see it, and it was pretty good. I thoroughly enjoyed Will Smith's performance :)
Chris Gardner is a bright and talented, but marginally employed salesman. Struggling to make ends meet, Gardner finds himself and his five-year-old son evicted from their San Francisco apartment with nowhere to go. When Gardner lands an internship at a prestigious stock brokerage firm, he and his son endure many hardships, including living in shelters, in pursuit of his dream of a better life for the two of them.
Borat - Hilarious. Offensive. Fantastic. Entertaining. Awesome. Possibly one of the greatest movies I've ever seen, lmao :P
You'll get more enjoyment out of it if you've never seen Da Ali G show (just because all this will be new to you, and therefore, more funny). Go see it if you haven't already!
Borat Sagdiyev, Kazakhstan's sixth most famous man and a leading journalist from the State run TV network, travels from his home in Kazakhstan to the U.S. to make a documentary. On his cross-country road-trip, Borat meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences.
And those are basically the 4 movies I loved of 2006.
I've seen others, but those would be the ones I enjoyed the most, hope you like them as much as I did :)
