At the meeting for the second beauty pageant, a girl gives Becca a can of hairspray and says, "Hairspray will make you a star!" The can of hairspray's brand name is "Turn Blad". Marissa 'Jaret Winokur', who plays Becca, won a Tony award in 2003 for her role as Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray. See more »

Even though "Beautiful Girl" is only a movie, after watching it once, it was like i had to watch it again! There are many reasons why I like it so much. I feel that Marissa Jaret Winokur was absolutely PERFECT for the part of Becca! She brought such character to the film. When you think of beauty pagents you think of the stereo-typical skinny girls w/ pretty looks. Becca took the risk of being humiliated and proved that you don't have to be 100lbs. and be "pretty" to be beautiful. This movie has changed the way I look at people life in general. It has showed me that I can do anything that I want whether people agree with what I do or not! I think that "Beautiful Girl" is the perfect movie for teen girls, like myself, to watch. There's just something about it...it's unexplainable!
