Mom of Sidney, 18 mos.: ...got her a new dress. We got it second hand, although you can't really tell. It looks like a dessert, doesn't it?

Like watching a car wreck at slow speed
14 February 2002 | by (Brooklyn USA) – See all my reviews

Impossible to take your eyes off this insane documentary. There is no voice-over, the subjects speak for themselves. The subject matter is so over the top that it is almost hard to believe that it is real. You couldn't make up characters this over-the-top. An amazing, unblinking look at the insular world of children's beauty pagents, 90% of the world will find it utterly repulsive, 5% will think it's adorable. Do not miss it.
