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

Both Amy Adams and Kirsten Dunst would go on to play girlfriends of Superheros. Amy Adams played Lois Lane in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. Kirsten Dunst played Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-man series with Toby McGuire. See more »
The opening claims that "1995 Marked (sic) the fiftieth anniversary of the nation's oldest beauty contest..." The "Miss America Pageant" has been ongoing since 1921. See more »
This is a great film for anyone who hates beauty pageants, and enjoys dark humor. The "mockumentary" aspect was done greatly, and the performances were also great, especially by (the very hot) Kirsten Dunst. I really like films that poke fun at serious topics (like death and mourning), and this one did a great job of it without being completely tasteless.
