When Olive (Abigail Breslin) finds out she is a finalist in a beauty pageant on the other side of the States, her father (Greg Kinnear), mother (Toni Colette), brother (Paul Dano), grandpa (Alan Arkin) and recently suicidal uncle (Steve Carrell) set out on a road trip none of them will forget.
There is not a weak link. By the end of the film you will feel like part of the family. It also features one of the greatest dance sequences ever choreographed. It is sublime.
