Drop Dead Gorgeous
Drop Dead Gorgeous explores the dark, conniving, and at times lethal underbelly of the beauty pageant world. The moral anchor of the 1999 mockumentary is Amber Atkins (Kirsten Dunst), a tap dancer from a trailer park who must duke it out against psychotically competitive contestants. With scene-stealing performances from Allison Janney, Kirstie Alley, and Amy Dams, this one offers up so many laughs . . . promptly followed by some serious plot twists.
