Overview

Gracie Hart Sandra Bullock is an FBI agent with a reputation for being aggressive and hard-nosed, who has long wanted to duplicate the career of her deceased mother, also an FBI agent, who died in the line of duty. Her cantankerous nature, though, has made her few friends, excepting her trusting, sensitive partner Eric Matthews Benjamin Bratt. However, her true abilities are put to the test when she is called upon to infiltrate a Miss United States pageant after a terrorist threatens to bomb it. Gracie, who prides herself on her toughness, must now feminize her behavior to effectively participate in the pageant with the aid of Victor Melling Michael Caine, a pompous consultant who dreams of whisking away Gracie's past self and creating "Gracie Lou Freebush" for an appreciative, all-American audience. After her arduous conversion, Gracie must play the role of beauty queen and FBI agent, and try not to blow her undercover outfit. Miss Congeniality, which was produced by star Bullock, features television stalwarts William Shatner and Candice Bergen in supporting roles.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
Following a long string of financially disappointing films, Sandra Bullock attempted a return to star status with this glossy, effective action comedy that she also produced through her company Fortis Films. If the script for Miss Congeniality is too by-the-numbers, predictable, and preprogrammed, it also makes exuberantly satirical use of its main idea of a butch FBI agent undercover at a beauty pageant, sending up that world's participants with relish. Particularly noteworthy are vigorous, funny supporting performances from Michael Caine and William Shatner as longtime pageant veterans suffering the vagaries of their profession with good humor and wit. When Bullock turns on her high-wattage charm, as she does here, she earns her status as an alternative Julia Roberts. (Indeed, her vibrant acting quickly earned her a Golden Globe nomination.) With a smidgen more edge and a dash of extra attitude -- perhaps casting her as a lesbian instead of a red-blooded heterosexual -- Bullock's film might truly have been a classic comedy. But in the hands of director Donald Petrie, who's overly friendly with the lowest common denominator, the watered-down final product is too eager to please. At its core, however, Miss Congeniality is an entertaining farce that prevails in its chief effort -- putting Bullock back on the mainstream map.

    A 5-star average? Really?....REALLY?

    You know something is wrong with the world when any Sandra Bullock vehicle has a 5-star rating when great films like The Godfather and American Graffiti do not. This movie is not a must see, it is not a must rent... there is no feeling of necessity here. Carry on.

    Omigosh! THIS MOVIE ROX!

    Omigosh! This is definately my favorite movie of all time! It is so fun, you always laughing, it is so funny, and I quote it ALL the time. I've seen it like 200 times, and once 6 times in two days (but hey, I had Pneumonia) Everybody should watch it! Although I was really confused because I bought it and on the back cover it said it was R! It is so not R! it's pg-13! grrrrr!

    It's awesome!

    I think Miss Congeniality is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I've seen it at least three times, and I love watching it everytime. You could classify this as a chick flick, but I'm a guy and I love it! There is just something so touching and romantic about this movie, like the times she teases, ''You think I'm pretty....'' I just love this movie and I'm not ashamed to admit it!

    HORRIBLE MOVIE

    This is the most awful movie I have ever seen. I couldn't even make it through half of it. Terrible acting, one of Sandra's worst movies.

    Together Again

    You'll wish you were in Sandra's shoes! This movie is a definite for any Sandra and Benjamin fan. The two really make the movie believable and you're glued to the screen waiting to see how their relationship blossoms with funny antics and jokes that put a different face on Law & Order's Det. Curtis, still a law man in this movie. The Snicker bar sceen is very funny! Oh and ''...maybe we can go out on a date after you become ugly again'', says Bratt to Bullock after the two catch the bad guys.

    *****The best film of our generation!!*****

    Miss Congeniality is by far the best film I've ever seen! Sandra Bullock and Benjamin Bratt made it an absolute hit! With Snadra Bullock's natural talent and Benjamin Bratt's cuteness it's a quick two thumbs up!

    hilarious!

    I've seen all of Sandra's films and this is by far the most funny and well done of all of them. Most of the time I'm very critical of movies, but I couldn't find anything that I didn't like in this one.
