In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
In a small Minnesota town, the annual beauty pageant is being covered by a TV crew. Former winner Gladys Leeman wants to make sure her daughter follows in her footsteps. Explosions, falling lights, and trailer fires prove that. As the Leemans are the richest family in town the police are pretty relaxed about it all. Despite everything, main rival (but nice) Amber Atkins won't be stopped. There could well be more death and disappointment to come.Written by

The mall parking lot Gladys' pulls into to pick up the dresses is Eden Prairie Center in Eden Prairie (not the Mall of America), the same mall that was used in Mallrats (1995) See more »
Before performing the physical fitness routine, the girls say their step ladders are still wet with paint, but when the Vaseline is brought around to them, their hands are clean. Later, when they are on the stage, their hands are covered in paint. See more »
This is probably one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Kirstie Alley, Ellen Barkin, Kirsten Dunst and Denise Richards are all perfectly cast. Not your ordinary comedy, much more akin to the humor in Very Bad Things.
As good as the whole cast is, Ellen Barkin really steals the show in this movie playing a beer guzzling, trailer park, hairdressing single mother with faults aplenty-but a heart of gold. I own this one, and every time I watch it I find something else that makes me laugh. Well written, incredibly well cast and exceptionally well acted. 10/10 for this one, highly recommend (unless you're easily offended.)
