I never got into pageant watching as a real thing. Never will. But so enjoy this dark, silly capturing of small-town American aspirations and ambitions. It's not for everyone, but if you like this movie I think you'll LOVE it.
As long as you're not looking for a 'serious' movie to watch, and want to have some great laughs, this won't disappoint. I can't imagine how many takes some of these scenes took.
I'm not going to give a lot away about the movie - just rest assured that if you're into comedies and enjoy having some good laughs, then I wouldn't hesitate to pick this up if you can find it. Even after a few dozen viewings, and being 15 years old, this has aged gracefully. I highly recommend this classic, under appreciated film.
There is a beauty pageant happening right there in a little town in Minnesota. 'You betcha' Kirstie Alley plays her part so well, as the mother of one of the contestants & a previous pageant winner herself. Ellen Barkin is Hillarious as a mother of another contestant, Kirsten Dunst! And then there is Allison Janney, an ever supporting aunt of Miss Dunst, who loves men as much as she loves a cold drink. Denise Richards, Who is, none other than the daughter of a previous winner & an organizer of the pageant, Kirstie Alley. There are many of little plots within the plot happening. It pays to watch it a few times.
