I saw this movie years ago when it was first released and thught it was hillariouse. It was recentlly on cable, and is just as funny as the first time I watched it.
I've never personally been in any sort of beauty competition, but my younger cousin has; and just like little league parents, beauty moms are a breed unto themselves! Kristi Alley was fantastic in her role, and kirsten dunst was adorablely goody-two-shoes in hers. It's got a lot of great actors; will sasso is very funny as the mentally challanged son of a locall pageant judge. And Denise Richards is an entirelly beleivable pretty little rich girl.
I'd definitlly recomend watching it for a few hours of light fun.

...is DROP DEAD FUNNY...
This a a great semi-dark comedy send-up of teen beauty pageants...a documentary film crew is following all the girls and their families while they get ready for the pageant...the film features several beautiful young gals, such as Kirsten Dunst(as the goody-goody poor girl) and Amy Adams as the nympho cheerleader(she was the cute nurse with braces in Hanks-DiCaprio film 'Catch Me If You Can')...along with some other not-so-beautiful but funny & quirky young gals as well, like Brittany Murphy.
Ellen Barkin is a riot as the trailer park mother..and her best friend, played by Allison Janney, is a gas too.
Kirstie Alley looked great, in 1996, and is one of the main comic players as the pageant director, but the film is absolutely filled with many other talented & funny female actors...and there are plenty of very funny male performances as well, like Sam McMurray as the town's rich furniture retailer and father of a dreaded, but expected-to-win, pageant contestant...there's even a cameo by Adam West(TV's Batman).
The movie is set in a small town in the northern state of Minnesota, and so the accents, used very well by the actors, are a part of the comedy...I'm not going to spoil it for you by telling too much, if you haven't seen it before....just know that it's a very funny movie - full of laughs!
I don't know what some of you gals might think, but as far as us guys go, a movie with lots of laughs and lots of pretty gals is a winner every time!
This is a FUNNY movie...
Enjoy!Read full review

Drop Dead Gorgeous
This movie is uniquely funny. I am surprised that more people have not seen it. I think all of the actors did a great job on the accents except for Denise Richards.
Can she act? I am not convinced. Otherwise, this is a great movie about small town pageantry and the prejudice that determines who the winner is.

Very Funny movie with an all star cast. Starring Denise Richards (Starship Troopers), Kirsten Dunst (Interview With A Vampire, Bring It On), Kirstie Alley (TVs Cheers), Brittany Murphy (Sin City, 8 Mile) and many more! Has a great story line and surprising ending. Laugh out loud kind of movie. Would have liked to see more of Brittany Murphy in it. Also would have liked more special features. But the movie itself is great!
