Drop Dead Gorgeous


Last night, the American mockumentary style, dark comedy film Drop Dead Gorgeous was on and as I hadn't seen it before I looked at the review. On finding that another one of my favourites, Kirsten Dunst starred, I thought I'd give it a try. As un-PC 90's films go, this topped it and like all the other films of that time, it was worth watching just for the line-up. It really is such a stereotypically US teen movie, taking the mickey, whilst being brash and hilarious. It got me thinking about how much the main characters have changed over the years since the decade I was born- nostalgia really hit in!



But on a more serious note, it reminded me of Brittany Murphy's tragic death and as it is the 1st year anniversary next month, this is my way of remembering her life. She will not only be remembered for her acting ability, striking beauty and chameleon look but also for her legacy as one of the best actresses of the 90's.
