Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
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 KNOW tarantino stays awake at night thinking about how he never has and never will make anything as good as this
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...
Beauty pageant gone so entertaining...
Cinematography/Visual Effects: 4/5
Overall Rating: 4/5
Warning(s): mild profanity
Still a classic. I can't believe this movie is 16 years old already.
Sandy Bollocks is an amazing comedic actress, she kills in all categories - particularly physical comedy. She puts in one of my favourite of her comedy roles here.
I love that this is essentially a tent pole WB action film, it's shot like Lethal Weapon, retains those lovely back lot aesthetics and has a score that could slip seamlessly into Nico. The thing I love most about it is that it has the balls to send up masculinity and it was the last of WB's big cop movies after Lethal Weapon 4, a nice, refreshing end to that era.
Yes, it ticks all the boxes for the Cosmopolitan demographic but all the beats are there and it never seems too cynical.
Saccharine box-ticking aside, it's worth mentioning how how high the gag-per-minute rate is. Also, William Shatner, he chews it all up.
Well, here I am, watching Miss Congeniality on the most ideal date.
I watched this movie twice as a kid, and watching it now has opened my eyes. Is Sandra Bullock a good actress in this movie? Yes. Is there a good plot? The premise is, but the plot itself is flimsy. Is this movie solid overall? No; it's full of clichés, and the main threat isn't all that threatening at all.
But it's a good popcorn movie chick flick. Plus, you get to see what happened to Winston Zeddemore after his Ghostbusting days.
Michael Caine is just excellent and the reason for repeat viewings.
I love this movie. KTHXBYE!
One day I'll travel back in time and see this in theaters.
Always fun to watch
A lot of people consider these bad, not well made or unoriginal and fair enough, but I quite like them.
