Drop Dead Gorgeous Is Streaming on Hulu & Gay Twitter Tap-Dances for Joy 

Drop Dead Gorgeous

Drop Dead Gorgeous is streaming on Hulu — and queer fans on Twitter could not be happier.

The cult '90s classic is a dark comedy, shot in the style of a mockumentary, about a cutthroat beauty pageant in the fictional town of Mount Rose, Minn. 

The film's over-the-top performances from a cast of established and then-fledgling gay icons — among them Kirsten Dunst, Brittany Murphy, Denise Richards, Amy Adams, Kirstie Alley, Ellen Barkin, and Allison Janney — have established the film as a favorite among LGBTQ viewers since it debuted 20 years ago.

Memorable moments (of which there are many) include Richards dancing with a crucified Jesus to the tune of "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" and a bevy of beauty queens, sickened from food poisoning, puking in unison from hotel balconies.

Drop Dead Gorgeous was a flop at the box office upon its release and was also panned by critics. However, it developed a following over the years due to its cutting critiques of pageant culture and small-town America.

Needless to say, Twitter was alive with GIFs from Drop Dead Gorgeous diehards, including many queer fans.

Barkin herself was among the excited folks who tweeted their enthusiasm about the news that the film is streaming — and perhaps entertaining a new generation of fans.

Drop Dead Gorgeous is now streaming on Hulu. Revisit the trailer below.
