The local boosters of Mount Rose, Minnesota proudly invites you to watch as their annual celebration of civic pride, wholesome achievement, teenage innocence and spirited camaraderie all go up in hilarious flames over the course of one vicious, nasty, back-stabbing beauty contest.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Incompetent and silly!"
‑ Barbara Shulgasser, Chicago Tribune
"Williams, however, thinks we should be tickled just by the mere mention of cow-tipping, lutefisk and Melissa Manchester. ... Poor people living in trailer parks and wearing polyester -- pretty witty stuff, this."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Derivative, a rip-off!"
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
‑ Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly
"Some of this material is undeniably funny, but it will surely be painful to some viewers and reinforce negative prejudice in others."
‑ Arthur Lazere, culturevulture.net
"Drop Dead Gorgeous hasn't enough structural savvy to make it a winner."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"If a movie billed as a comedy has not a single laugh, can it still be called a comedy?"
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Drop Dead Gorgeous is undeniably a refinement of the Farrelly Bros.' brand of audacity."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"The film finally loses all effectiveness as satire and disintegrates into vomit jokes and clumsy anti-climaxes."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"In this movie you can literally spot the seam where it crosses the line from the really good section to the completely botched one."
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
"The ideas are funnier than the images."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Relentlessly defective!"
‑ Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner
"It all feels a bit like an uninspired take on Christopher Guest's genuinely hilarious Waiting for Guffman."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Exhibits a lot of attitude but not a whole lot of smarts."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Dreadful, offensive!"
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
