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

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.
