Too caustic to be as funny as it easily should be with this scenario and in some cases these exact lines of dialogue.

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.

Drop Dead Gorgeous hasn't enough structural savvy to make it a winner.

If a movie billed as a comedy has not a single laugh, can it still be called a comedy?

Derivative, a rip-off!

Drop Dead Gorgeous is undeniably a refinement of the Farrelly Bros.' brand of audacity.
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
January 1, 2000
It all feels a bit like an uninspired take on Christopher Guest's genuinely hilarious Waiting for Guffman.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/5

The film finally loses all effectiveness as satire and disintegrates into vomit jokes and clumsy anti-climaxes.

Broad, obvious and thuddingly unfunny!

Exhibits a lot of attitude but not a whole lot of smarts.

A mockumentary of numbingly unfunny proportions!

Some of this material is undeniably funny, but it will surely be painful to some viewers and reinforce negative prejudice in others.

In this movie you can literally spot the seam where it crosses the line from the really good section to the completely botched one.

Dreadful, offensive!

Energetically acted but too in love with its own outrageousness, Drop Dead Gorgeous goes for the jugular of beauty pageant culture and ends up leaving only a hickey.
David Elliott

Drop Dead Gorgeous doesn't drop dead, but the gags often arrive like planks hitting our heads.
