Underrated satire Drop Dead Gorgeous came and went in theaters 15 years ago, rejected by audiences and critics alike. Now that it’s a cult classic, the cast and crew tell BuzzFeed why the film is more popular than ever before.
One of my best friends all 4 years of college, Tommy owned a DVD of Drop Dead Gorgeous. He lived 1 floor away from me our first two years, one door down junior year, and shared a house with me Senior year.
Despite being a dancer and the rest of our circle of friends being theatre students, Tommy was always willing to supply this movie as the fuel for our all nighters that we frequently had to pull. Mostly for design classes.
So we’d have a big ass group of people over to our dorm/apartment/home. I’d make snacks. We’d pile our sketchbooks and watercolor pencils and drafting mats and various rulers onto the carpet and quote this movie all damn night.
This movie is so dark and hilarious and special. And as much as I want Tommy to keep it forever, I kinda think it wouldn’t be the worst idea to see how much he could get for it on Ebay…
