WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Hoover family has seen better days. 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. Moody teenager Dwayne has taken a vow of silence, and overextended mom Sheryl can do little more than slap on a smile. But when the youngest Hoover, the energetic Olive, enters a regional children's beauty pageant, the family think their luck could change and embark on a cross-country trek, chasing the coveted title of "Little Miss Sunshine."
