There are some voracious film watchers on Letterboxd with diverse tastes so I thought it would be interesting to see…
Never Mess With An Agent In A Dress.
Gracie Hart is a tough-as-nails FBI officer. When her office receives a letter from a terrorist going by the alias "The Citizen", they figure out that he's planning his next act at the Miss America beauty pageant. Because Hart is the only female officer at her office, she's chosen to go undercover as the contestant from New Jersey.
I really hate that I haven't watched a movie in a while and this is all I have logged! I'm home for Christmas in the U.S. and while at my brother-in-law's parent's house, this was what we ended up watching, much to my displeasure.
Miss Congeniality is terribly predictable and incredibly pointless but it still manages to not be the worst of the worst, you just can't help but love Sandra Bullock, well, at least I can't help it.
I loathe to think of what the sequel is like though and I can guarantee I will go out of my way to avoid it.
It's awfully predictable, cliched, and the script isn't exactly a home run, but the charisma and comedic timing of Sandra Bullock, lots of fun supporting performances (especially Michael Caine and William Shatner), great chemistry, and some quite hilarious moments, makes Miss Congeniality really work in the end.
GET THOSE JUDGING EYES OFF ME!
Fluffy, schmaltzy, and incredibly predictable. However, it's funny enough and well paced enough to pass the time for 105 minutes and is a nice diversion for when you've only had three hours sleep the night before.
Typical, clichéd, predictable, cheap movie of the 2000's. I still don't know how both Sandra Bullock and Michael Caine agreed to do this. There is like, no real plot at all, and the script is too unfunny and uninspired, not really knowing what it wants to do with its poor characters.
What's the point of having this movie be about an undercover detective if there is not "detective-ing" going on AT ALL? It's just pointless. This whole movie was pointless. Cash-grab would be a good word to describe this, but I honestly prefer the word shit.
Too bad that talent got wasted in this piece of crap. Sandra Bullock tries her best to make it work, but unfortunetely, it isn't enough to save this childish, lazy script.
You know something's wrong when White Chicks is a better movie that the movie you directed...
A dobar je film, što sad :( Sandra Bullock je dosta tsundere, par dobrih jokes ima i tako. Ostale picice misice bi tribale biti malo bolje picice i pokazati cicice.
The last time I was this naked in public I was coming out of a uterus!
Feminist film theorist Laura Mulvey is still alive, but if she wasn't, she'd be spinning in her grave anytime someone watched ‘Miss Congeniality’ from its endless layers of gaze – ours, Bullock's, the male FBI agents looking through Bullock's pinhole camera at her reflection of herself, their remarks into her earpiece about her appearance, what she eats, the sexualization of other pageant contestants, etc. This is the definitive text on gender standards of its time without even moving a muscle.
A drunken viewing while snuggling w/ my girls after a long night of dancing.
i love this movie tbh
It's ok. Nothing to write home about.
An FBI agent must go undercover in the Miss United States beauty pageant to prevent a group from bombing the event.
The star cast can't help it: this variation on the Pygmalion story is quite unfunny fair.
Sandra Bullock cae bien en roles de comedia, tiene (o tenia) el carisma, el lenguaje fisico y todo para una performance redonda, y la pelicula q le circula al lado esta bastante simpatica tambien.
god i love this movie
I love this movie ahaha -- this was actually the first movie I ever bought on DVD and it's pure fun. People never talk about it either! It's not hilarious but it's always a fun-light and easy watch. Sandra Bullock is excellent as well.
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
In potential 'honor' to my Mother who passed away at 57 Wednesday evening.
We had a painfully complicated relationship. But…
