This movie is really, really funny. I am guessing it will offend some people so it's not for everyone, but I liked it a great deal.

The humor in this isn't for everyone, but it's the funniest movie I've ever seen.

This is actually pretty smart for a comedy that centers on a beauty pageant. Although not a film I would typically enjoy, this had enough going for it to keep me interested. Better than a lot of people give it credit for.

This is one of the most underappreciated films of recent years. It's humor is wonderfully sarcastic and not completely over done like most comedies lately. The entire cast was amazing together and played off each other perfectly. I was also pleased to see a film where Kirsten Dunst actually acted half way decently. It's a film you should definitely check out if you haven't seen it and one that only gets funnier the more times you revisit it. I highly recomend it!

Drop Dead Funny

This is one of my favorite comedies! Probably because I like Christopher Guest movies, I thought this one was great.

Done as a pretend documentary, a small town town in Minnesota prepares to host it's annual Mt. Rose American Teen Princess pageant. Although there are only eight contestants, one would think this is the actual Miss America pageant for all the fuss and importance it's given by the town.

The contestants are so funny with their wide variety of personalities, looks and really bad talent. The judges are hysterical and clearly unqualified to judge anything. Kirstie Alley is great as the woman in charge of the pageant and the mother of one of the contestants. Allison Janney is my favorite as the wild and promiscuous friend of Kirsten Dunst's family.
