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.

When it's funny, it's quite entertaining, but there's always the suspicion that it could have been hilarious with a bit of care.

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.

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

There are laughs: the leering judges, especially, who don't know much when it comes to talent but are impressed with nubile young girls flexing their limbs.

Allison Janney is tacky incarnate as Barkin's good-time gal pal.

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