Critic Reviews

    It isn't bad so much as it lacks any ambition to be more than it so obviously is.
  2. Reviewed by: Robert Horton

    It all coalesces in a TV-level pleasantness, which isn't quite enough to fill a big screen.
  3. 50
    The players are game. Too bad they don't have much of a coach or a plan.
  4. 50
    A barrage of dangling plot strands, inconsistent characterizations, and suspense-free shootouts.
  5. Has some entertaining moments, thanks mainly to Bullock herself, who is surprisingly glamorous as well as endearing.
  6. 50
    Bullock maintains a luster and comic naturalness that most actresses couldn't pull off in such mediocrity.
  7. Supporting performances add comic spark to a movie that otherwise seems happily, deliberately second-rate.
  8. William Shatner's comic timing helps him nearly steal the picture.
  9. Reviewed by: Andy Seiler

    It is a measure of the movie's lack of inspiration that William Shatner is the funniest thing in it.

    Stumbling its way down the comedy runway, Miss Congeniality is yet another miscalculated vehicle for the ever-feisty Sandra Bullock.

Sandra Bullock fits the role in this movie like it was written specially for her. She's funny in the before, during, and after makeover. The movie itself is fluff but it's supposed to be a comedy, not Shakespeare. I don't have many DVDs but this one is in my collection. Full Review »

Sandra Bullock puts on one of her most annoyingly funny performances to date, and fits it well. Full Review »
