Could it really have taken four years to come up with [this]story.

There is a bit of a lesson about identity and self-worth imparted here, but it's muddled at best. Who has two hours to waste watching this movie?

What if I misinterpreted the whole thing, and it was really intended to be a straight drama with occasional light, humorous overtones? And what if pigs had wings?

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.

I think you will find it quite satisfying.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. If that were only true for the production of Armed and Fabulous.

For the sequel Bullock's as likeable as ever, but she can only do so much when working from a mundane script that relies heavily on repeating gags from its predecessor.

Sure there are a few laughs here and there, and the climax, while predictable, gives a slight thrill, but...

...an unfortunate example of what happens when a once-popular actress is staring at the downside of her career

Miss Congeniality 2 is one of those sequels that gives sequels a bad name.

O filme claramente ressente a ausÍncia de Michael Caine. (...) Sandra Bullock ť uma gracinha, mas n„o faz milagres.

Trips over itself more than Gracie Hart. And it never gets up.

Nothing more than warmed-up leftovers, a boring and malformed vehicle for an (admittedly very likable) actress who simply can't find anything better to do in Hollywood.

Sometimes, a movie is so abhorrent it's difficult to think of the appropriate words. When I do, I can't print them here.

Mild, middle-of-the-road and formulaic.

The subtitle of the film is Armed and Fabulous. I can think of more appropriate words to use. Awful and Forgettable? Atrocious and Foul?

Many bad movies at least make an effort; this one is content to simply lay there, like a fat tick gorged on the blood of complacent moviegoers.

What were the filmmakers thinking? I mean, what besides making a second trip to the barn to milk the $300 million cash cow that was Miss Congeniality?

Sure, "Armed and Fabulous" would like to be considered absolutely fabulous, but "Armed with a Few Laughs" comes closer to the mark. "Amputated by a Weak Script" nails it.
