Legs waxed. Lips glossed. Gun ready. FBI Agent Gracie Hart is going undercover as a hopeful eager to be the next Miss United States. But Gracie doesn`t have a beauty-pageant bone in her body.

Sandra Bullock gets physical in Miss Congeniality, bringing her powerhouse talent for physical comedy to the role of an operative posing as a pageant contestant in order to ferret out a terrorist targeting the event. Michael Caine deliciously plays the frustrated consultant hired to turn the FBI`s Dirty Harriet into a poised beauty. And Benjamin Bratt, Candice Bergen, William Shatner and Ernie Hudson also score points for hilarity in this box-office smash.

Your Opinions and Comments

7 / 10
Not a very funny movie, yet still quite enjoyable. Bullock and Caine give nice performances, despite the rather dull script.
The video transfer is good. There are no compressions signs at all and the quality of the image is satisfactory.
The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. While the surrounds are not used frequently, their usage for ambiance is rather nice.
The menus are all still.
The extras include 2 commentaries and a behind the scenes look, which includes some deleted scenes and outtakes as well.
Bottom line - a fun (yet not funny) movie for a boring afternoon or evening.
