I didn't know what to expect when getting this; I only got it because it featured Little Nell in the opening credits. I hadn't even heard of the Alternative Miss World pageant before. This is a documentary, but it has got to be one of the most entertaining documentaries out there; it is made more like a "filmed for posterity" documentary than one of those "and so Professor Nicholas P. Nichols invented the cure for chickenpox in 1894" kind of documentary.
It's a great way to kill time when you're stuck with a boring night. It's fun to see all the weird and interesting costumes these contestants come up with (even by the second time I viewed it I forgot what the outfits were, so it still kept me on my seat to find out who the winner was again).
The other two reviews on here say that it gets boring, but whenever I watch it the ending is sooner than I would've hoped for. It's not one of my favorite films nor do I think everybody who's living needs to watch it. But if you're into weird things and want something new to watch, "The Alternative Miss World" (aka "I Wanna Be A Beauty Queen")will be a treat to watch.
