Razor sharp mockumentary satire of small town beauty pageants leaves no one out of its crosshairs as it goes behind the scenes for a high school pageant where the contestants are literally dying to win. Wickedly funny and smartly written.
It's a little too on the nose. It definitely doesn't hold a candle to better teen satires like 'Heathers', 'Election', 'Mean Girls' or 'The Chumscrubber'. However, 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' is still pretty entertaining. You can tell the cast members were having fun.
