Sequels are often disappointing and, although Miss Congeniality 2 has some clever ideas, it is not as good as the first movie. MC2 pretty much starts where its predecessor finishes with Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) now a designer-cloth wearing megastar following her heroic rescue in MC1. The antitheses of the tough, cynical cop she once was, a new even tougher girl cop Sam Fuller (Regina King) is hired as her minder. The pair hate each other at first but, when tragedy strikes, they gradually meet in the middle and (surprise, surprise) save the day.
A goodish story then but Miss Congeniality 2 is spoilt by its crass modern commercialisation and product placement. Watch it if you enjoyed the first film but prepare to be disappointed.
