From its paper-thin plot to the utterly flat script, virtually nothing works.

Whenever the script's writers can't come up with a funny line for her to say or a comic way to conclude a scene, they have Bullock drop or bump into something. That is, when they don't have her fall down.

Shatner's forced presence, meanwhile, should have been lost in space.

Any sequel to Miss Congeniality is uncalled for, but it didn't have to be this staggeringly awful.

Somehow manages to fail to live up to the memory of a film that wasn't much to begin with.

Bullock lifts an ill conceived screenplay into an area of some appeal. A valiant effort is one kind of recommendation; her overriding huggability another.

As a transparent sequel, this flaccid follow-up has all the creative stability and comic support of a defective high heel shoe.

Dumb. Very dumb.

This, to me, is a classic example of a sequel that was just made because the first one made money. I didn't even like the first one.

Congenial? No doubt about it. Armed? You bet. But fabulous? That's one claim Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous can't make.

A tired, dull bunch of bull-ock

Armed and Superfluous makes a more fitting title.

Miss Congeniality 2 trods the same path so recently plodded by Nia Vardalos' garish trainwreck Connie and Carla.

Sandra Bullock's latest makeover as an FBI agent runs out of lip gloss well before she snatches a beauty queen from the jaws of death a second time.

Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous attempts to do this and has its moments before it succumbs to complete banality.

Without better material, Bullock's talents will remain undercover.

Bullock can still play the girl next door doing a pratfall with plenty of charm, but nowhere near enough grace to save this otherwise mediocre movie.
| Original Score: 2/4

We never find 'congeniality' in a clunky, mean-spirited sequel that mines most its 'humor' from one unlikable character's sadistic abuse of another unlikable character.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

The laughs are hardly armed and this mess, far from fabulous!

In the zany tradition of Lucille Ball's Lucy, Goldie Hawn's Private Benjamin and Renee Zellweger's Bridget Jones, we can now add Sandra Bullock's Gracie Hart.
