I gave this movie 2 stars out of 10. I would have given it a 1 but I enjoyed the first Miss Congeniality so emotion swayed me to give the movie an extra 1 star.
I had hoped the sequel would be as good or better than the first but it was not. The jokes were stale, the chemistry was non-existent and the story was uninteresting. This movie had none of the charm, story and chemistry as the first movie.
The story begins with our heroine, Sandra Bullock, coming off of the beauty pageant sting and suddenly finding fame. This however, hinders her ability to conduct her job since too many people now recognize her. Since the FBI needs some good publicity, they tap her for the job. She is given a female bodyguard, played by Regina King, whose character is almost the same as Sandra Bullock in the first Miss Congeniality. They go on a publicity junket until a friend of Bullocks is kidnapped and she goes and save the day.
