Bullock is charming but clearly can't choose roles to save her life; cross your fingers we won't be subjected to Three Weeks Notice soon.

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

Not fabulous, barely even congenial, Armed and Fabulous lets us see the end of Bullock's stardom, even if she doesn't.

If people keep seeing movies like this, they'll just keep making them. Kind of like feeding the birds...or the cockroaches.

There is no good reason to go and actually see it.

This is one hideous excuse for a motion picture -- the kind of steaming sewage that occasionally makes life as a film critic seem like an exercise in self-immolation.

Miss Congeniality 2 has some laughs, but many of the jokes seem desperate.

Might please the diehard Bullock fans, but no one else.

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.

So as not to be completely uncreative, they'd make Bullock over again, and she'd save the same beauty queen's life, but darn it, there'd be no beauty pageant this time.

Sandra Bullock's FBI agent is back in action for a sequel that feels like a distant runner-up in the quality comedy pageant.

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.

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.

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

Having basic hygiene skills doesn't preclude a woman from being tough enough to kick elderly Regis Philbin's ***.

The sequel is predictable, dumb and flaccid, too, but to a greater degree. It is everything its predecessor was, and less.

It isn't just that Miss Congeniality 2 is nearly absent a single genuine laugh; it's that instead of a screenplay and a story we now have stereotypes and sketch comedy.

Miss Congeniality 2 is a sour, tedious, unfunny joke for 115 minutes. It may be armed, but it most certainly isn't fabulous.

Although Sandra Bullock is entirely watchable, Miss Congeniality 2 fails to win the title the second time around. Say goodnight, Gracie.
