#neverforget Movie Edition: 'Drop Dead Gorgeous'

Don't cry out loud.

It's time to journey back in time with us once more, to commemorate a film that's so close to our hearts we're literally *crying* onto our keyboards RN. The masterwork in question is the flawless depiction of pageantry Drop Dead Gorgeous, a quintessential watch in the school of bad-good film of which we are reigning presidents.

Like an ANTM meltdown, this movie is proof that watching genetically blessed people #fail is one of life's greatest gifts. The foray into nationalism, natural talent and small town corruption taught us every single lesson in OWNING IT. The #neverforget that follows is a small token of our appreciation for this priceless life skill.

Let's begin with the most classic pageant gag — question time! Pls note the flawless casting feat. Kirsten Dunst, Brittany Murphy, Denise Richards and Amy Adams. We die.

But mostly:

Amber Atkins was totally the winner in our eyes from day one. If we had any doubts about whether or not tap dancing was cool, she certainly cleared them right up.

Plus, she had a #casual job at the morgue. 

The best characters in the movie were defs Amber's mum and her BFF Loretta. Those ladies knew how to live.

So much ~sabotage~.

And even more patriotism. With subtle undertones of Brittany Murphy's character being a stoner...

What would a movie about beauty queens be without a HBIC? Becky was about the least PC most/lol one you could hope for.

She also did this:

You're killing us, Becky.

Brittany Murphy was as loveable as ever as Lisa.


Then there was ditzy/drrty Leslie Miller played by Amy Adams.

But the hands down, unchallenged, greatest moment of the movie goes to: DON'T CRY OUT LOUD!
