Drop Dead GorgeousWho knew the Minnesota beauty pageant circuit could be so deadly?

This week, the “Second Run” squad set their sights on the very dark 1999 mockumentary “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” which boasts an all-star cast that includes Kirstie Alley, Ellen Barkin, Denise Richards, Alison Janney, Kirsten Dunst, and … wait for it … Amy Adams. Topics discussed include how amazing Alison Janney is (seriously, it’s worth watching just to see her steal the entire movie), the insulting/condescending nature of small-town comedy, and all of the racist jokes that just wouldn’t fly in 2017.

Tune in next time, when we explore the magic and majesty of Tony’s pick, 1991’s “The Rocketeer,” starring Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, and Timothy Dalton.
