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.
Sandra Bullock is funny enough to make this uninteresting cop comedy a watchable one.
Another childhood favourite and the reason I will always love Sandra Bullock. I'm going to have "she's a lady" by Tom Jones stuck in my head all day
Totally not embarrassed to adore this film. OMG! Sandra Bullock on the top of her comedic game in a truly fun, inspired screwball romantic comedy. <3
It's pretty embarrassing how many times I've seen this movie.
And I totally don't care.
A nice light comedy. Predictable yes, but not a bad way to spend 90 or so minutes; Sandra Bullock makes this film bearable.
Not surprising, the movie had nothing to offer us. I had the biggest crush on Sandra Bullock in 8th grade, but its amazing how I don't care for her that much anymore.
p good actually
'Smilers wear a crown, losers wear a frown.'
Chick flicks are hardly my thing. I find their characters grating, their humour lame and their premises either dreary or ridiculous. I'm clearly not the target audience. And that's fine. But when certain parts of a film are so ludicrous, awkward or just plain bad, the 'target audience defence' crumbles, and Miss Congeniality has a few such moments. It has some good jokes, and a not untalented cast, but a few glaring flaws make the silliness and the sweetness all the less palatable.
Sandra Bullock works the humour well, and her rejection of the pageant culture from the inside is entertaining, but based on a huge problem. The film's first half rests…
