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.
How can anybody dislike this film? It isn't amazing but boy is it hilarious.
Quite possibly Bullock's best comedy role to date. She plays her role perfectly. Far superior to the sequel.
Part 1 of violently ill with the flu, broken DVD player, and a dead laptop being forced to watch what's on TV.
Last night, I went to a beauty pageant.
It was a bit of a surreal experience, but left me with a hankering to re-watch 'Miss Congeniality' (after a late night where I've been drinking I'm often left with a desire to watch a cheesy chick flick the day after).
I remember when I first saw this movie, aged 12, at a friend's sleepover birthday party. I loved it then, and I still enjoy it now (although Sandra Bullock can never really believably be considered 'ugly', let's be real). Beauty pageants are weird things in this day and age, but 'Miss Congeniality' still holds up as a decent chick flick (I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S 15 YEARS OLD THO HOW), and (at least according to my sister) is a fairly realistic depiction of the sisterhood, camaraderie and friendship pageant girls develop.
April 25th because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket!
Love this movie. Sandra Bullock is awesome. I love this movie.
Truth be told, I never got bored while watching this movie. At first I thought it was just simply a movie about pageants and agents but little did I know that it has more in it. This movie was a part of my childhood and it really did give me a huge impact plus I must say that Sandra Bullock is such an awesome actress who can pull off any roles that are given to her.
I've watched this movie a lot of times and Yup, never got tired of it!
The plot is quite formulaic, but Sandra Bullock elevates it with a great performance. The rest of the cast is great, too.
Good movies written and/or directed by women, arranged by year. Will continually add more as I see them. Click "Read…
