I wasn't expecting too much with this film, but wanted to see it as I had enjoyed "Miss Congeniality", and am a fan of Sandra Bullock. I was quite surprised that I enjoyed it, as many sequels can be quite bad and the cinema reviews weren't that great! It probably isn't the sort of film that will have you gripped to the edge of your seat but it is easy to watch and very funny in places. Sandra Bullock is brilliant, going from slobby agent Gracie Hart to agent "Barbie"! It's definitely a film that I will watch several times. You have to enjoy it for what it is - easy going entertainment!

This movie is exactly what you would expect. Sandra bullock does what she does best. She portrays a character, long on good looks, short on anything serious. The sort of movie you should watch when you wish to take the brain off the hook and have two hours disappear.
Ok, it's the ultimate "nothing movie" - but if you're in the mood for nothing, why not?

I totally loved this film, it's great light hearted humour and Sandra Bullock plays her part really well.

She totally rocks this film, it's kick ass woman protecting the community, FBI style.

Don't listen to these people who say it's bad, it's a funny, slightly tacky, fun film to watch with your friends.

Enjoy!

This really should'nt be seen as a sequel, as it stands alone as a film, the only continuity being Gracie, the fabulous Sandra Bullock. Gracie is now so recognisable she gets asked for an autograph in the middle of a bank job, and so, unable to be a field agent any more, becomes the 'face of the FBI'. This high profile job and round of TV appearances rather go to her head. She gets teamed up with the most difficult woman in the FBI (whom no-one else will partner) as her bodyguard, and they get caught up in a kidnapping case. The sight of them doing a Tina Turner impersonation in a drag club, with Gracie dressed in pink sequins and feathers, and the car chase that followed, left me helpless with laughter and gasping for breath. It's good fun - enjoy.

‘Miss Congeniality.’ The surprise hit. Actually, I don’t know whether it was a surprise hit to the studio behind it or not, but, judging on the way the sequel was trotted out, I get the impression that it was a surprise to someone – most likely the writers who had the task of getting lightning to strike twice. It didn’t. It sort of missed its mark, but at least the results weren’t catastrophic.

The original film was about Sandra Bullock, basically playing Sandra Bullock (or Gracie Hart to be precise), only as a ‘fish-out-of-water’ FBI agent who got roped into going undercover at the Miss United States Beauty Contest, in order to find a potential killer. It was hardly ‘high art’ but Bullock’s truly loveable persona made the film bounce by and it was a great popcorn flick.

This time round, the film suffers from a lack of direction. They start off trying to progress the story. Since Agent Hart became famous, she’s finding it hard to go undercover any more without being recognised, therefore rendering her pretty useless as a field agent. So, instead of hunting bad guys, she agrees to be the ‘face of the FBI’ – a task that soon starts to change her. I quite liked how the story showed how fame, fortune and generally having a team of hair and make-up artists at your beck and call can change you (for the worst). And, before long, the once lovable Hart is a spoilt, demanding diva.

However, that doesn’t stop her friend (and Miss America) Cheryl getting kidnapped, hence Hart must go back into the field (this time Las Vegas) in order to rescue her.

What follows is a sort of retread of the original and a sort of new story, although one that feels a lot like the first, only less funny. It’s not terrible – largely down to Sandra Bullock.

Miss Congeniality 1 was spot one with everything. It had a great cast, great story behind it and Sandra looked stunning.

Fast forward 5 years and Sandra this time behind the camera as well as in front of it and to be honest it's a little disappointing. Don't get me wrong Miss Congeniality 2 is a fun sequel it has some great comedy gags and Sandra looks beautiful as ever but the whole story behind it was kind of weak, sometimes it even looked embarrassing. But I thought in the end it was a fun and enjoyable film. It should be classed more of a stand-alone film rather than a sequel but Sandra did her best. The film was really hurt by not having Benjamin Bratt's presence because of the chemistry between Sandra and Ben and it also lacked a character in the Michael Caine type role and honestly I thought Diedrich Bader was a poor casting decision.

But now the bad is out of the way lets get to the good parts. The scenes between Hart and Fuller keep you entertained throughout the film, they seemed to really capture the love/hate relationship between the two characters, The reintroduction of the legend that is Mr Shatner was a great touch (but should have had more screen time) The development of the character Grace Hart in the space of 10 months I thought was a really good addition to the film, The breakup scene was nicely done (But as previously stated would of been better if Ben was in the scene) and the Tina Turner scene was hilarious, I also liked the fact they revisited the training area from the first film in the F.B.I offices.

In closing is Miss Congeniality 2 is/was good for what it is/was but lacked that sparkle that made number 1 so good.
