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 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.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
aka, a tough "tom boy" type learns to appreciate more girly women and their talents, befriends a handful of them, and starts to take them seriously enough to risk her career to save their lives.
it's an incredible movie, basically.
Sandra Bullock is my comfort food when it comes to film. I've never not found her performances enjoyable.
This millennial comedy holds up incredibly well. Paving the way for female-led, friendship-centred comedies a decade ahead of recent blockbuster successes like Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, we find this sweet, funny crime-comedy about an FBI agent reluctantly trapped undercover at the Miss United States pageant. I was 10 years old when this film first graced cinema screens. It was love at first sight and I've watched it countless times since then, whenever I needed a quick pick me up. One of the reasons why I so loved this film as a young tween was its focus on female friendships, women having conversations,…
What can I say? It's one of my all-time favorites and always makes me feel better.
i hate it when films give an a-list celeb glasses, a bad haircut and a shitty wardrobe and expect the audience to believe that everyone in the film thinks they're ugly until they get a magical makeover and suddenly they're beautiful.
Sometimes you have to take one for your marriage. My wife puts up with the countless bizarre film selections I make all the time, so it was only fair that I let her pick one.
What is unfortunate is that this is my first film of the year, which I hope doesn't set a bad tone for what's to come.
It is however not a terrible film. Mildly entertaining, even if predictable. If you are going to watch a comedy like this, you could do much worse.
The perfect date movie. Female friendship, a weird amount of action sequences, and people trying to pretend that Sandra Bullock is ugly make for one classic comedy.
One of the funnier Sandra Bullock comedies. It' helped by a great supporting performance from Michael Caine. He's extremely funny in this, as is William Shatner as the longtime pageant host.
The screenplay for this movie is used as an example in so many screenwriting books that I've read, I had to finally watch it. The reason it is so heavily referenced is because it follows all of the guidelines. As such, it's not a very interesting story. I knew exactly what would happen, and was at the mercy of the flourishes. There are a few entertaining ones, but I don't see myself ever watching this again.
Movies with female protagonists; not including movies with a prominent female secondary lead, ONLY protagonists.
Suggestions are welcome.
This is the second part of my list of watched movies, this list carries on from June 1999 to the…
