YMMV / Drop Dead Gorgeous

  • Cult Classic: The film was both a financial and critical failure in theaters, but has since gained appreciation for its dark humor and quirky characters.
  • Ending Fatigue: The movie goes on an insanely long time after the murder mystery is wrapped up.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The film was made before "retard" was labeled a slur against mentally disabled people. So it can be pretty disconcerting seeing it thrown around so freely, to the point that it seems to be considered an Inherently Funny Word.
  • Funny Moments: So many thanks to the abundant use of dramatic irony and black comedy.
    • "You know what, Dad? Peter's gay!" (Beat) "GAY!!!"
    • Becky's talent performance. Is "Crowning Moment of Offensive" a trope yet?
    • "I'm a winner. Nobody can stop me but me." Cue explosion.
    • The sugary-sweet nurse who tries and fails miserably to cheer up Annette and Loretta.
    Do you think a nice cool mint will help if I shove your head up your ass?
  • Les Yay: Between Amber and Lisa, when Lisa gives up her costume so the former of the two can compete. They even kiss each other on the cheek!
  • Moment of Awesome: Amber's tap dance is pretty dang good.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Amy Adams!
