What's worse than a comedy that thinks it's funny but isn't? A comedy that thinks it's funny and smart but isn't. The American obsession with beauty pageants is a fruitful topic, but this embarrassingly unsubtle comedy about mothers and daughters who will do anything to win goes over the top with every single joke.
