Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabuolous

PLOT:

Because of the notoriety she gained from the Miss United States pageant, Gracie Hart’s life as an undercover FBI agent is over. In addition, Agent Eric Matthews broke off their relationship which she did not take well. Begrudgingly on the advice her boss Director Harry McDonald, Gracie decides to become the FBI’s media relations officer. Ten months later with the assistance of style coach Joel Meyers and a best selling book behind her about her experience, Gracie becomes a designer-clad media darling and the made-up face of the FBI. The new Gracie is the exact opposite of Agent Sam Fuller, a woman who, like Gracie before her pageant experience, has deep seated anger issues. The two do not get along, but that doesn’t stop McDonald from assigning Sam to be Gracie’s bodyguard. The two are sent to Las Vegas when Gracie’s friend, reigning Miss United States Cheryl Frasier, and the long time Miss United States pageant host Stan Fields are kidnapped there. At the FBI’s Las Vegas field office, Assistant Director Walter Collins wants Gracie solely to be the media spokesperson on the case, but Gracie wants to be back in the field, especially when she uncovers some leads Collins dismisses. Despite their antagonistic relationship, Gracie and Sam have to work together to follow these leads. Along with them are Joel and insecure FBI Agent Jeff Foreman, the foursome who in addition to finding Cheryl and Stan, have to elude Collins’ other agents, Collins who wants Gracie and Sam back on a plane to New York and who wants the glory of solving the case for himself.

What people are saying:

“The things we loved most about #1 were downplayed in favor of the things that weren’t all that funny; and a betrayal of the main character through most of it.” 2 stars

“I liked Miss Congeniality, but was anyone asking for this? And if this was going to be forced upon the world, did it have to be this bad? I would hope not, but it seems that we have no choice.” 1/2 star

“Absolute dribble, inspiring only to preteen girls and Sandra Bullock. Bullock’s talent and good looks are the only reasons this movie is watchable. The flick is armed and dangerous alright – to anyone involved in the production of the film besides Sandra.” 1 1/2 stars

“Worth seeing just for the Dolly Parton Cameo and the Proud Mary performance. Again Sandra Bullock does what few others can, and thats bounce off a co-star as if they have worked together years, Regina King is an excellent addition.” 3 1/2 stars

“Sandra Bullock returns as FBI agent Gracie Hart in the second Miss Congeniality movie. Gracie has become well-known by the public after saving Cheryl Frasier (Heather Burns) at the Miss United States Pageant, where she was working undercover. Gracie is asked to become the face to the FBI, and give a positive face of the FBI by promoting her book on TV. Gracie has become a celebrity and is no longer a real FBI agent. Her friends from the pageant, Cheryl and Stan Fields (William Shatner) are kidnapped in Las Vegas, and Gracie wants to find them. Gracie is ordered by her boss to continue being the face of the FBI, while they find her friends. Gracie can’t do that, so she starts her own investigation. Her bodyguard, FBI agent Sam Fuller (Regina King), and Gracie go undercover to find her friends, and the fireworks begin. If you liked the first movie, you will love this one. I think it is even better than the first, and Regina King steals the show with her part. There is much more action and funny scenes. I actually laugh through the entire movie. This is one cute chick flick where you can just sit back and enjoy.” 4 stars
