Along the way, Rose strikes up an unlikely friendship with the owner of a industrial cleaning supply store, played by Clifton Collins Jr., who stands out in his role as a disabled loner who gets sucked into Rose's chaotic world. Norah seeks out Lynn (24's Mary Lynn Rajskub), a stranger whose photographs Norah finds among a deceased woman's belongings. Alan Arkin plays Rose and Norah's dad, who despite good intentions never seems to deliver on his promises, especially when it comes to his get-rich-quick schemes. While enjoyable to watch, Arkin's character is too reminiscent of the actor's Oscar-winning performance in that other movie with Sunshine in the title. Still, Adams and Blunt are terrific as these dysfunctional sisters and bring humor and pathos to the film. Adams -- who has proven her versatility in recent years with Junebug, Enchanted, and Doubt -- adds a minor but lovely feather to her cap with this role. Blunt, who broke out in The Devil Wears Prada, is clearly on the verge of becoming a leading lady.
