Product Description


It's a good thing Sandra Bullock knows her strengths and weaknesses, because without Bullock as star and producer, Miss Congeniality would be an insufferable mess as opposed to being a mildly enjoyable trifle that is custom-made for Bullock's established screen persona. Only Bullock's fans could really appreciate this fluff (even then they'll wish its ripe premise had been more intelligently handled), but it's not without some highlights to accompany Bullock's reliable charms. Here she plays clumsy, nerdy FBI agent Gracie Hart, who is given the horrific pseudonym Gracie Lou Freebush (one example of the movie's juvenile tendencies) when assigned to infiltrate a beauty pageant to investigate threats of a terrorist attack.

Transforming Bullock from frumpy to stunning is a piece of cake (although she gives pageant coach Michael Caine a run for his money), so the movie's premise is trivial at best. More enjoyable is her character's uncouth disdain for pageant contestants and her mistaken perception that they're all a bunch of bimbos. The movie nicely charts Gracie's realization that her own pageant makeover provides a much-needed ego boost. In addition to Caine's effortless scene-stealing, pageant host William Shatner and organizer Candice Bergen are smart choices for comedic support (Shatner's a perfect Bert Parks wannabe), but the movie desperately needs a credible foundation for its comedy to really pay off. Bullock's bureau boss (Benjamin Bratt) is an unconvincing dimwit, and none of the plotting is as smart as say Beverly Hills Cop in combining procedure with laughs. That leaves Bullock to carry the burden of a comedy that just barely works in her favor. --Jeff Shannon

3.0 out of 5 stars watchable mostly for Michael Caine's performance March 18 2008
By falcon
this Sandra Bullock vehicle is watchable,and has some amusing
moments.most of those amusing moments come from Michael Caine,with a
few laughs from William Shatner.the plot is simple.Federal Agent Gracie
Hart(Sandra Bullock)has to go undercover as a contestant in the Miss
United States beauty pageant as her latest assignment.i won't give away
the reason for this particular assignment.but i will say that Gracie is
a tom boy with no idea of how to be a pageant contestant.the words
couth or grace,or elegance are not a part of her vocabulary.this is
where Victor Melling (Michael Caine)comes in.it's his job to mold
Gracie into someone resembling a pageant contestant.Caine gets the most
laughs for the whole movie.other than him and William Shatner,the movie
is nothing special.for me,Miss Congeniality is a 3/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Miss Congeniality July 8 2004
Miss Congeniality DVD ~ Sandra Bullock is not the next idea for the noble peace prize. Then why bother with to much pretense. The movie is fun, francy free and void of social commentery which is nice.

This is a feel good movie and I enjoyed Sandra Bullock's acting and humor. She is an exellent actress, one of my favourites. The production and sets were well done and the movie flowed from scene to scene smoothly.
For a light, exciting humorous view pick," Miss Congeniality".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Comedy With a Great Message July 1 2004
Sandra Bullock is one of America's best loved actresses for a reason - she is genuine, not fake. I have seen several of her movies, and I love them all. They just wouldn't be the same with another actress in it. Miss Congeniality is a hilarious comedy. It is that rare picture, that although it screams CHICK FLICK, is something men will roar with laughter at, too. My friend persuaded my husband to see it, and he LOVED it.
Benjamin Bratt and Bullock have *sigh* chemistry. I found myself wishing they could get together in real life. Such wonderful supporting actors, including William Shatner, Michael Caine, and Candice Bergen, make the film even more delightful. This movie has slapstick, action, romance, everything. It is one of the best comedies ever, a true classic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Miss Congenialty is fluffy and sweet June 17 2004
By A Customer
This movie ain't great art, and it's really pretty silly. Sandra Bullock is wonderfully charismatic, and saves what is really an ordinary, forgettable film. If you don't care for Sandra Bullock, then don't watch this movie.
I'd rank it "right up there" with Love Potion #9.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie June 15 2004
By A Customer
This is a great movie and I have it in VHS format, but WHY can I not get this, and other movies, in full screen formatting for DVD. Why is widescreen being pushed down my throat. I have a standard 25" TV and the borders on the top and bottom of the screen bother me. So I have stopped buying movies, I rent them (not often) or get them on pay per view and record them. This is NOT ideal but is OK until the industry understands that not everyone loves widescreen formats
