If you are one of the people who watch Miss America pageants to rag on their clothes, insult their figures, and wait in breathless anticipation for one of them to trip--this movie is for you. If you are not a troll, it probably isn't for you. (The point of setting it in a rural location is simply because if you aren't in Hollywood or New York, you must be a brainless hick.)

Hollywood's contempt for middle America is on full display in this film. DDG might be a good cultural entry point for any reckoning of why so many people in the American heartland states voted red in the last presidential election. That's not to say that red state culture is above criticism--it's not--but there's a big difference between respectful criticism (or, even, good-natured satire) and the venom served up in DDG.
