Her ambition to win the Little Miss Sunshine title becomes a collective quest for family redemption.

Frank's lover, fellowship award, and job are lost, turning him to suicide. No other movie has ever been able to make me laugh so much or cry so hard in such a short amount of time.
Yeah, it was just a movie, but the young actress was still exposed to a bunch of stuff I'd never want my daughter to see. After all, she promised her Dad that she was going to win, and then she dedicates the dance to her Grandpa for his love and encouragement, albeit a bit skewed. Sheryl's goal is for the family to love each other and for her and Richard to have a normal married relationship.

Frank, who is also suffering a great deal, understands Dwayne's pain. Olive is overjoyed, and after some arguing about transportation and a pressuring pep-talk from her self-help guru father, Richard , the entire family agrees to travel to Redondo Beach in their Volkswagen micro-bus. Richard is a well-meaning enough father, but he's obsessed with a 9-steps-to-success program that he created and is now trying to make into a book, and his tendency to view everything through the 9-step lens leads him to make some questionable parenting choices.
Richard, the father, is a floundering motivational speaker, Grandpa's been kicked out of his retirement home and Uncle Frank's been dumped by his boyfriend. Kneeling could be come a visual motif of this movie. Frank, Dwayne, Sheryl and Grandpa Edwin want to be supportive of Olive's original choice and each take a bite of ice cream. And Olive's grandfather is a ne'er-do-well with a drug habit, but at least he enthusiastically coaches Olive in her contest talent routine. But the experience points the whole family down the right road, literally and figuratively. At a rest stop, the clutch on the micro-bus breaks, forcing the family to push-start the bus whenever it is not parked on an incline.
They are like dueling philosophers, who on the end of a pier overlooking an unpredictable, deep and dark ocean, try to analyze the human condition and find meaning in man's sufferings. Richard could have rejected the moral premise, and instead of taking off at night to seek his dream and Stan Grossman, Richard could have sacrificed Olive's need and used the family's travel time during the day to try to get his book deal back on track.

The airy sets by David Korins work equally hard, with skyscapes and puffs of cotton-candy clouds ascending and descending to suggest different climes.
