When a pudgy, bespectacled seven-year-old, Olive ({|Abigail Breslin|}), voices her desire to take home the coveted Little Miss Sunshine crown at an upcoming beauty pageant, her wildly dysfunctional family sets out on an interstate road trip to ensure her a clear shot at realizing her dreams in former music video directorial team {|Jonathan Dayton|} and {|Valerie Faris|}' quirky feature debut, starring Greg Kinnear, Steve Carell, and Toni Collette. Despite early career success as an outspoken motivational speaker, family patriarch Richard (Kinnear) continues to cling to his Refuse to Lose philosophy, much to the chagrin of his increasingly annoyed spouse, Sheryl (Collette). Add into the mix a Nietzsche-reading teenage son ({|Paul Dano|}) who has taken a vow of silence until he finds his fate as a fighter pilot; a horny, heroin-happy grandfather ({|Alan Arkin|}) with a penchant for creative profanity; and a suicidal genius and Proust scholar (Carell) still reeling about losing both his male lover and his MacArthur Foundation genius grant -- and the stage is set for a road trip in which sanity is sure to take the back seat. Fox's 2006 DVD release offers a commentary track by first-time directing duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris as well as writer {|Michael Arndt|}, and deleted scenes.
