WTF?

Who in heaven's name GREENLIT this monstrosity? A cheap-looking ripoff of 'Romy and Michele's High School Reunion' (with some added gratuitous "gross-out humor") -- yes, that's just what the world needs.

Not that I thought a movie with such a title would be 'Citizen Kane' -- but this thing was *beyond* ridiculous!

I'm only rating it 3/10 because... well, as much as I hate to admit it, I *did* snicker at a few little things (i.e. the stack of "Baby-Sitter Club" books, stupid Chloe singing "The Greatest Love of All" at the pageant -- although, with that one, I found the song choice FAR more entertaining than her over-the-top horrendous performance of it).

On the other hand, I didn't so much as crack a smile during the final pageant scene; I could only watch in silent horror as characters who were MUCH too old to be throwing temper tantrums did exactly that (and wonder to myself how many genuinely good films are passed on so that junk like this can make its way to the viewing public).

Oh -- in case anybody cares, Alicia Silverstone appears in the movie as a successful ex-pageant winner (in contrast to the decidedly *un*successful pageant losers played by our two leads). Vincent D'Onofrio (what was he thinking?!) and Jon Cryer also appear; both of them are unmemorable enough, however, that I forgot they were even in the movie until I looked at the cast list on IMDb before posting this review.

The only reason I *might* watch this movie again someday is because it seems like something that *might* be fun to snark on with another viewer.

But please don't mistake that for a recommendation (unless you're prepared to lose a significant amount of brain cells); this really is one of the STUPIDEST movies I've ever seen... and not even stupid in a "fun" way. Just stupid. (3/10)

3/10
