Trivia / Drop Dead Gorgeous

  • Dawson Casting: Various grades. Denise Richards was old enough to be going to her ten-year reunion.
  • Executive Meddling: Mostly averted, but not for lack of trying by New Line late in the production, according to Buzz Feed's 15th-anniversary piece on the film. After principal photography was over, while the film was being edited, New Line, which hadn't really paid much attention during shooting, looked at its tracking numbers and found that not only were very few potential viewers aware of the film, fewer still planned to see it. Panicking, they asked the filmmakers to recut the film Lighter and Softer, more like a conventional teen comedy along the lines of Clueless. But by then it was already too late to get the cast back together for reshoots, and most of the editing was done.note
