Although the satire is biting and the tone is irreverent, Drop Dead Gorgeous lacks the killer script and top notch performances necessary to make this a wholly successful production.

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

Drop Dead Gorgeous is undeniably a refinement of the Farrelly Bros.' brand of audacity.

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

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

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

Drop Dead Gorgeous is a satire of beauty contests, which is simultaneously beating a dead horse and kicking a stubborn mule.

It all feels a bit like an uninspired take on Christopher Guest's genuinely hilarious Waiting for Guffman.
