Plot: Undercover FBI agent Gracie Hart shows no signs of having any femininity in her demeanor or appearance. Generally a bright and capable agent, she is in trouble at work when she makes an error in judgment in a case which results in a near disaster. As such, one of her by-the-books colleagues, Eric Matthews, who has never shown any inclination of thinking outside the box, is assigned to lead the high profile case of a terrorist coined The Citizen instead of her, while she is facing possible disciplinary action. Gracie pieces together the evidence to determine that The Citizen's next target will be the Miss United States beauty pageant. The pageant represents everything that Gracie abhors. Despite Gracie's mannish demeanor, Eric, with no other undercover female agent remotely fitting the demographic, assigns her to go undercover as a pageant contestant to see if she can flush out The Citizen, who is perhaps one of the other contestants. Although the pageant administration, led by former winner Cathy Morningside and long time host Stan Fields, provide the FBI with access to the pageant, Cathy in particular is less than thrilled to have a non-credible Gracie posing as a contestant which she feels will ruin the pageant. The FBI enlist the assistance of former pageant contestant coach Victor Melling, who is facing his own disgrace associated with the pageant, to do the near impossible task of transforming Gracie, not only into a woman, but a credible beauty pageant contestant. As Gracie proceeds in the transformation, she gets to know the other contestants, not only as potential criminals, but also as real people. She also discovers that another sinister element is present at the pageant. She will do whatever it takes to quash that element and protect her new friends, namely the other innocent contestants. But now displaying some femininity, Gracie begins to have more womanly feelings herself and in turn attracts the attention of men, one in particular about who she is happy. Runtime: 109 mins Release Date: 21 Dec 2000
I left the theatre hours ago and I'm still laughing (by Fresh-17)
Honestly speaking I had not very high expectations for this one. Not because I thought it was bad, but because so much is revealed in the trailers nowadays. So I figured all the funny jokes had been given away already. I was wrong. This movie is truly entertaining and hilarious. I don't remember having such a great time at the movies in quite a while, even if some people think it is predictable, but... isn't that the reason most of us go to movies anyway? To spend a good time, have a good laugh and hopefully forget some of our everyday worries? Well this film did it for me. <more>
Congratulations to Miss Bullock, she did great job both as producer and as a leading lady, and the supporting cast was amazing. 10/10
How many crapola pageants have I seen in my life? A ton of meaningless models parading around in swimsuits claiming to want to help the deaf orphans of the world while posing nude in some off the wall porno magazine. If you have ever seen - A dethroned beauty queen - A hacked off runner up - Or an incredibly stupid talent, then you just have to watch this movie. It is so incredibly hilarious at putting every single stereo-type out there. I remember watching Miss America years ago and Miss Indiana had a cow when she was named first runner-up. I also remember some pretty lame talents like <more>
"I want to be a secretary" and these girls were top ten on national tv. William Shatner and Candice Bergen are A+++++++++++++ in this movie. Watch it and laugh for days.
The movie is hilarious, and Sandra is as lovable as ever (by Dragoneyed363)
I have loved this movie from the very first time I saw it. Even taking into account that it was 10 years ago when this Rom-Com was released, and most Rom-Coms are forgotten throughout the sands of time by plenty of people for how many there are and how unremarkable most of them manage to be, this one has always managed to stick with me and uphold an excellent reputation, in my eyes, for how wonderful and fun it really is, and is truly one of my favorite movies in general.The numerous upsides: I think the deliverance of all the lines and scenes in this film is just perfect for what it sets out <more>
to accomplish. Sandra Bullock was the perfect choice for the role, and all the other supporting actors and actresses are simply magnificent in their parts and bring to you a movie that is meant to be nothing but fun and laughter from the beginning. However, you get a little bit more than what you are in store for. I found myself being completely interested every time I have watched it over the years, because it captures your attention with the storyline and antics and does not let go. The performances, like I said, are amazing and the cast really knew how to work with what they were given. The jokes and antics are hysterical and though many when they hate or dislike a comedy will tell you that the movie was funny in a bad way, do not listen to any bad reception this may receive and view it for yourself with a clear conscience, because it really is enjoyable that way, in my honest opinion.The very minuscule, few downsides: Yes, the movie does get a tad bit mediocre, at times, and at others of course they could have handled the material a little better, but aside from those two matters, I thought the film was, in a sense, perfect, and was completely astonishing and surprisingly hilarious and outstanding to every value it should have been hilarious and outstanding to.I have enjoyed the film for a long time now, I still enjoy it and find it to be a fun and thrilling adventure from beginning to end that I can always watch for the simple pleasure of just viewing it, not to just pass the time. Guys, do not pass it off for just a chick flick, because a few are liable to find this a superbly well time. Though it is a Rom- Com, I consider it a near masterpiece for how much it gives to the audience and how incredibly satisfying it always is.
And my Golden Globes goes to... (by stormhawk2019)
Sandra Bullock again delights us with a good comedy, this time massively backed by the public, which led to the realization of a sequel.This movie is made for her, and she is worth it. It totally takes the weight of the plot and full of humor and spontaneity. Far from films like "Big Momma's House" or "White Chicks", "Miss Congeniality" has gags great, both physical and verbal. And is that the Bullock is an expert in the art of making laugh, so much that his interpretation in this film earned him his second Golden Globe nomination for Best Comedy Actress, <more>
with much merit since they are never nominated for performances in such films a bit serious.The transformation of a rude FBI agent into a refined Miss is hilarious, and the plot of the film is not very silly, the tape does not fall into the gross humor, or in situations too ridiculous, so it is very hilarious and funny, but not a bomb.As a side note the always effective Michael Caine and Heather Burns the little blonde Miss who befriends who dominate the mood almost as well as Sandra. On the other hand Benjamin Bratt as always in his line of puppet that does not contribute absolutely nothing to the tape, honestly the race like actor of this lad is never going to take off ....The American critics applauded the performance of Sandra and the audience went massively to the cinema, everything is said. One of the best films in the Bullock's career, with a sequel that could not keep the bar so high, was difficult.The best: Sandra Bullock, almost takes the Golden Globe. The worst: A romance with so little importance could be deleted.
My Favourite Sandra Bullock Movie (by slightlymad22)
"Miss Congeniality" is easily my favourite movie with Sandra Bullock in a leading rolePlot In A Paragraph: Disgraced FBI agent Gracie Hart Sandra Bullock goes undercover at the Miss USA Beauty Pagent to prevent a bombing.Bullock proves she is more than capable of carrying a movie, and re-teaming after the "Demolition Man" Bullock and Benjamin Bratt are a lot of fun and have genuine on screen chemistry. Candice Bergman is always a lot of fun though this is the first time I have seen her in anything since the Burt Reynolds movie "Stick" in 1985. I can't <more>
decide who actually stole the movie Michael Caine or William Shatner as both are brilliant, and steal every scene they are in, and that is not said lightly as Bullock is excellent.
I absolutely loved Miss Congeniality, it was funny warm and completely likable. The best aspect was the charming and funny performance of the underrated Sandra Bullock as Gracie, in possibly her best role. Gracie is a beautiful woman, but her behaviour like the pig snorting isn't very typical of women. She is excellently supported by a witty, side splittingly funny script, and some lovely camera-work. the painting scene was priceless Not to mention the original plot that never marred the feel good nature of the film. The performances of Michael Caine and Candice Bergen were excellent. <more>
But if I had one minor criticism, it would be that William Shatner slightly overplayed his part of Stan, other than that it is a comedy you just don't want to miss. 9.5/10 Bethany Cox.
Excellent comedy kept me laughing all the way through. (by Davenz)
This is an excellent comedy which kept me laughing all the way through consistently without the flat patches you often get in longer comedies. The premise is not so unusual with Sandra Bullock playing an ugly duckling/Pygmalion turning into a swan, however, the performances, especially by Bullock, Caine, Shatner and Bergen make the film.Bullock stars as the never been loved tomboy of the FBI who has to dump her coarse manners and unkempt appearance in order to go undercover at a beauty pageant. Michael Caine is the Dr Higgins figure grooming her for stardom. Shatner plays Shatner, and Bergen <more>
is the matron of the Pageant. Benjamin Bratt plays the love interest !Bullock is excellent all the way through from uncouth to gorgeous, and is particularly stunning in her transformed self. Caine is also excellent and the interplay between these 2 and the cast in general makes for a lively pace all the way through, til the final crowning ceremony.A thoroughly entertaining film and well worth seeing.
There are some actresses who produce weighty or worthy pieces of work and there are those who produce popular movies. Sandra Bullock is an actress who falls into the latter category. Yet, in this category, she is at the top of the tree and it is in films such as Miss Congeniality that she proves this.For a fish out of water comedy, this is a film that plays to Bullock's qualities - her tomboy image from Speed, her warm humour and her ability to play for laughs and be deadpan. As such, Bullock is allowed to shine from a castlist containing Michael Caine and Ben Bratt. However, if I had one <more>
criticism, it would be that there are occasions when Caine just appears to be shamelessly mugging and camping it up for the camera to no real effect.There are some genuinely funny moments, mostly centred around the pageant and it is nice to see such a movie which doesn't take itself or its setting too seriously. Many of the contestants give good supporting performances and as such, it is hard to pick one out.Overall, it is a bit slight but anyone renting/buying this movie would surely know what to expect - familiar, funny and essentially sweet-natured - just like Sandra Bullock herself.8/10 - A good example of the genre.
This movie has it's funny moments besides the fact Bill Shatner IS part of the cast and not a cameo and tries to break some stereotypes exploited in subtle-brilliant DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. I can't put my finger on it...but for the first time in my life, I really fell for Sandra Bullock. I found her quite charming as the rough, tom-boy character. Her eating habits was riotous and as we all knew her "transformation" was stunning--kind of proving Hollywood is full of NORMAL looking ladies that have great make-up artists and breast boosters. But there was something different <more>
here with Sandra. Exiting her "changing hanger" she showed a beautiful shape--proving women REAL looking women ARE beautiful. I never knew Sandra had shape?
