The spicy, fast-paced script is salt-and-peppered with zany zingers.

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

Uneven!
William Arnold
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

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

Broad, obvious and thuddingly unfunny!
January 1, 2000
Screenwriter Lona Williams doesn't seem to have gotten much beyond the petty absurdity of theme headdresses and ludicrous talent competitions.
| Original Score: 6/10

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

Its dark humor often hits the spot.

While Drop Dead Gorgeous is too long and uneven, Dunst's performance manages to sustain the film.
