It's been five years since we first met Gracie Hart in Miss Congeniality. Nowadays, despite her newfound fame, Gracie is down in the dumps following a broken romance and she thinks that her new celebrity image is jeopardising the rough and tumble undercover work she loves. Reluctantly, she takes on another role - that of "the face of the FBI" which sends her onto the talk show circuit. Soon, Gracie starts to enjoy the spotlight.
The image does not impress her new partner, Sam Fuller a tough and ambitious agent who thinks the media darling has turned into an FBI Barbie. The atmosphere between them is catty, to say the least.
When Gracie's best friend, Cheryl and emcee, Stan Fields are kidnapped in Las Vegas, Gracie is raring to get back into action, but the FBI does not want to lose its greatest PR asset. Sam is assigned to keep her partner in line, but she soon finds that the old Gracie is back and there's nothing she won't do to save her friends.
Welcome back Gracie Hart. Following the success of her run in the Miss USA Pageant Gracie is now the new face of the FBI, a celebrity in her own right. When her friend Cheryl is kidnapped, along with Stan Fields (William Shatner), Gracie must go undercover and gets teamed up with Sam Fuller, a hard ass who can't stand Gracie. Together they must find Cheryl and Stan before it's too late.
I don't usually enjoy a sequel as much as the first movie, but in this case I did, and in some parts enjoyed it a little bit more than the first film. Sandra Bullock plays Gracie Hart wonderfully, keeping her true the character in the first but showing how she has grown and changed from how she used to be prior to the first movie.
If you have watched the first Miss Congeniality movie then you should watch this one as it is a great follow on from the first and does a great job of giving you laughs with a little bit of drama in the mix.
