DROP DEAD GOOD


I love this movie from 1999 - it satires life in Minnesota much more effectively than Fargo ever did.

The plot is simple: A bunch of girls compete for a beauty pageant in a mock documentary. The jokes are sick, twisted and very politically incorrect - but oh-so funny.

The movie is packed with talent - including: Kirstie Alley, Kirsten Dunst, Brittnay Murphy, Ellen Barken, Allison Janney (also in Minnesota based movie Juno), Denise Richards, Amy Adams, Nora Dunn and Mo Gaffney. Also, Joan Jett rocks out the Mary Tyler Moore theme song at the end.

Rent or buy it now.
