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

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.

While most audience members will cringe at the inevitable showdowns and reconciliations, Bullock makes the female-bonding angle seem not only believable, but compelling.

The picture is going to have fun with or without you, so you might as well give in.

Forget logic or reason or thinking. With nonsensical plot devices that are there solely to make a joke, this Sandra Bullock vehicle is surprisingly entertaining.

Deliriously funny if instantly forgettable.

The film occasionally drags and overstates points, especially in a sticky-sweet coda. Yet we're always invested in the anxious Gracie and abrasive Sam.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

For giving us a completely new story about the further adventures of Gracie Hart, Miss Congeniality 2 is a fine sequel.

[MC2 is] like a firecracker that spirals all over the place, exploding in some places and fizzling out in others. Luckily, there is more exploding than fizzling.

The jokes are hit or miss, but the appealing teamwork of Bullock and King gives the movie gleam.

It's all pretty silly. Sometimes silly is just what you need.

Somewhere inside this very mainstream Hollywood confection is a surprisingly subversive little bit of deconstruction. This is a movie about an un-makeover.

Sandra Bullock and Marc Lawrence bring us a sequel that's just as "congenial" as the first movie... and that's a unique achievement.
