Ok, it's the ultimate "nothing movie" - but if you're in the mood for nothing, why not?
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.Read more ›
Gracie Hart, the unlikely Miss America runner-up, has tried her best to go back to her day job at the Police Department, but her notoriety and public appeal have become huge handicaps and actually threaten the safety of anyone working with her. Since Gracie is now a lemon, her boss sees a way to make lemonade by turning her into the glamorous face of the department. The plot follows her hugely successful mission until her one and only “friend” is in mortal danger and Gracie has to return to active duty, saddled with a surly bodyguard who despises her and a style expert who won't allow a single one of her hairs to be out of place.
Regina King is terrific as the partner/antagonist and Diedrich Bader hams it up convincingly as an over-the-top style guru (the successor to the character played brilliantly by Michael Caine in the first movie). But most of the truly hilarious moments are down to William Shatner, who apparently excels at tragicomedy, although my favourite scene is the one featuring Ida: Sandra Bullock at her most daring comedic genius.
Quite a few special features, enjoyable if you like some background info, but the quiz was too long and boring, ultimately, disappointing.Read more ›
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.
The extras are absoloutly rubbish with only one trailer, but the film is well worth buying alone.
