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.
GET THOSE JUDGING EYES OFF ME!
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.
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.
A domestic terrorist threatens to hit during the Miss America pageant. The FBI's reaction is to send Gracie Hart, one of its best agents, undercover as a contestant. There is one problem though: she is almost completely devoid of the femininity and poise necessary to help her advance at the contest and go undetected.
If there is an example of great acting and comic timing overcoming everything else, then it's this hilarious Sandra Bullock vehicle. The plot is full of contrivances and impossibilities, and Petrie's direction can be charitably called pedestrian. But the actors are so good at their roles and they deliver their lines so perfectly that it's hard not to laugh heartily with this movie.
Gracie's role is…
Sandra Bullock eating food! adljkfalskdfj.
Great comedy. Sandra Bullock is very good and quite charming. In fact, the whole cast is well suited to their roles.
This film is an interesting examination of modern femininity. There are times when it affirms modern sensibilities, but it also respects that women are different from men, which I appreciated. As much as society would like it to be otherwise, women are different. Not inferior to or better than men - simply different. God created men and women to compliment each other.
The writers gave Bullock and the rest of the cast few genuinely funny moments to work with. What we see on the screen is Bullock trying to keep her head above water amongst waves of snorts and ugly duckling jokes. That she succeeds with relative grace is a tribute to her likability as a lead in movies like this one.
Sandra Bullock is quite possibly a perfect human being. In Miss Congeniality she has fantastic comedic timing and manages to bring out the best in every other actor she's on screen with. As far as slumber party comedies go Miss Congeniality is a must watch.
At first I was not a fan of this film and went into it never expecting to like it. In the end I thopught it was a decent film with a pretty interesting concept. I wouldn't rush to watch it again but I would certainly say check it out if you get the chance.

So many great one-liners in this movie. An old fave that was a perfect end to our girls weekend and it was just as enjoyable as all the other times I've watched it. It's one of those movies that I will quite happily watch whenever its on TV. Just great.
Stories about women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Good movies written and/or directed by women, arranged by year. Will continually add more as I see them. Click "Read…
