Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous by John Pasquin, 2005 (PG-13)
with Sandra Bullock (Two Weeks Notice, The Blind Side, The Heat, Miss Congeniality, Gravity), Regina King (Enemy of the State), Sam Fuller, Enrique Murciano Jr., William Shatner (Miss Congeniality), Ernie Hudson (Miss Congeniality), Heather Burns (Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality), Diedrich Bader (Ice Age), Treat Williams (127 Hours, Hollywood Ending, Hair, Deadfall, Reaching for the Moon - Flores Raras), Abraham Benrubi, Nick Offerman (All Good Things, The Men Who Stare At Goats), Eileen Brennan, Elisabeth Röhm, Leslie Grossman, Molly Gottlieb, Regis Philbin, Lusia Strus
After her triumph at the Miss United States pageant, FBI agent Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) becomes an overnight sensation — and the new “face of the FBI.” But when the pageant’s winner, Cheryl (Heather Burns), and emcee Stan (William Shatner) are abducted, Gracie springs into action with the help of skeptical, businesslike agent Sam Fuller (Regina King).
Definitely not as interesting as Miss Congeniality, and sort of a premise to what would be The Heat missing somehow the connection between the two partners. Sandra Bullock as the transformed to be elegant PR for the FBI is probably the only interesting part of this movie. The story is not the main focus, and we tend to forget what it is we are exactly watching. At least on the original side, there is no love story, and that's refreshing... A little bit like in The Heat...
