February 5, 2018
It's a likeable comedy with many pratfalls, a couple laugh-out-loud moments, and a deep understanding of pageant superficiality.
December 26, 2010
Pleasant and entertaining; for teens and older.
February 15, 2010
Its story is far from logical, let alone realistic, yet we laugh and completely buy into the fun.

While there may not be many surprises, there's little to dislike either.

Sandra Bullock (who also produces) takes a lame idea of a script, splashes her considerable allure all over it, and comes away with an amiable, light-hearted holiday charmer.

Sandra Bullock is in a class of her own and it's only partly a matter of beauty. Perhaps the larger part is that shining, irresistible personality that lights a room, a runway, a silver screen. She can get you interested in the phone directory.

Caine may save the movie, but Bullock is the movie. The confection rests on her considerable off-center charm and beauty.

Taking a potshot at the beauty pageant industry, Miss Congeniality is entertainment as light as a well-shaped hairdo, fitted out with skin-deep characterizations and a plot that has the all complexity of a G-string bikini.

The title refers to the Miss America pageant award given to "the person who was nicest to everyone," and this seems perfectly apt for Bullock's winning performance.

Sandra Bullock gives her regular-gal aura a serious workout in Miss Congeniality as an ugly-duckling FBI agent transformed into a beauty-pageant swan. And, by gum, she pulls it off.

Watching Michael Caine and Sandra Bullock interact testily with each other is this film's special treat.
June 15, 2002
Marc Lawrence's screenplay isn't particularly fresh, but it does include an assortment of snappy one-liners, most of them tripping off the velvet tongue of Michael Caine...

Mais um ponto para Sandra Bullock, que prova merecer, assim como sua personagem, o ttulo de Miss Simpatia.
December 10, 2001
Bullock has such excellent timing, and such a superb sense of physical comedy, that we would happily watch her (and we have!) in much worse films than this.

Sandra Bullock single-handedly makes this a movie worth seeing.
June 4, 2001
A movie that seems to have no potential at all and still works remarkably well.
May 4, 2001
Has a lot of charm, which accounts for its success.
March 23, 2001
A genuine crowdpleaser boasting a charming star turn, Miss Congeniality is indeed difficult to dislike, but hey, sometimes it's worth the effort.
March 21, 2001
Sandra Bullock is simply irresistible, displaying great comedic flair with impeccable timing.
