    I thought this was a great movie. I found it to be very touching as well as very funny. It had me in tears from laughter and from the emotion. Minnie Driver won me over with this movie. I rewatch it at least once a month and my love for it never waivers. It is, if you will forgive me, a "Beautiful" movie.

    I thought it had great music, and a funny plot. The rest of you who panned it are middle aged single people with no lives.

    I really liked this movie. You need to be a beauty pageant expert to understand the story. There are many women in the world who would actually do those things and more to become beauty queens. I personally love this movie.

    Sally Field's direction is pedestrian, though she does manage to get winning performances out of Driver and Eisenberg.

    Burdened with so many poky scenes that it approaches the level of the distributor's "Drowning Mona" and "Whipped," both candidates for the year's worst.

    Beautiful is a mess, but not without interest.
