This super-quotable satire about teenage beauty pageants is an outrageous, acerbic cult classic where newcomer Amber Atkins (Kirsten Dunst) challenges Becky Leeman (Denise Richards) for this year's crown. But as freak tractor explosions and stage accidents begin to thin out the competition, we get to witness the ugliest beauty pageant this small Minnesota town has ever seen.

With its incredible lineup of ladies, including Allison Janney, Ellen Barkin, Brittany Murphy, Kirstie Alley, and a then-unknown Amy Adams, this bold mockumentary is an unexpected dismantling of beauty and success.
