Jesus loves winners, and that means he must be a fan of Drop Dead Gorgeous, the wearer of July’s Movie of the Month tiara and sash, so let’s talk about it!

Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Doug, as well as Sean and newcomer Jon to discuss why Drop Dead Gorgeous was a critical and commercial failure, why it absolutely should not have been, plus lots of comparisons to the far inferior Heathers. Then we have a remarkably upbeat round of Rants, Raves and Reviews, before playing a game so depressing you’d think Richard devised it.
