Plot

After Cheryl Frasier and Stan Fields are kidnapped, Gracie goes undercover in Las Vegas to find them.
 

Comments

After thwarting an assassination attempt at a beauty pageant, F.B.I. agent Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) is having trouble keeping herself useful in undercover situations due to her newfound fame. Chosen to represent the F.B.I. on the publicity circuit, Gracie and her new butch partner, Sam (Regina King, setting her career back 10 years), fly to Las Vegas for an appearance. Once there, a kidnap plot involving a beauty queen (Heather Burns) and a television personality (William Shatner, trying hard) reveals itself, forcing Gracie back into action when the local bureau (led by Treat Williams) can't seem to find any clues. Sometimes, Sandra Bullock makes it really hard to enjoy her career. 2000's "Miss Congeniality" gave Bullock the kind of box office any actor would kill for, but it was a tremendously lazy film, propped up on lame jokes, shrill performances, and centered around watching Bullock nauseatingly try to be funny. It should come as no surprise that "Congeniality 2" is simply a larger helping of the same formula, yet this time the production knows it has is gold in some audience member's eyes, so they layer the poison on thicker, and with less care. This sequel is dreadful in just about every way imaginable, its main focus is to routinely prove a nagging, egotistical point: Sandra Bullock finds herself hilarious. Who am I to argue with audience approval? Yet, to see Bullock go from fine lightly comic/dramatic fare in "Hope Floats" and "Forces of Nature," to crud in the two "Congeniality" films is demoralizing. Here, her idea of a joke is to either snort while laughing (a gag the film goes to five times for effect), act "ugly," or excruciatingly improv at the end of every single line. Bullock doesn't have the chops to be so bravely comedic, and her performance is like watching amateur hour at the local hotel's comedy rumpus room. "Congeniality 2" piles on the hurt further with a sequence that finds Gracie dressed up in old age make-up to investigate a retirement home. Her portrayal of a Jewish grandmother ("Praise Moses!" being her catchphrase) is up there with a mediocre high school talent show, albeit one armed with 80 million dollars to propagate its brand of awfulness. Bullock isn't bringing anything innovative to the material for the sequel, so if you've seen the first "Congeniality," you've already seen the sequel, and potentially the third film too. Bullock doesn't do herself any favors by bringing director John Pasquin into the fold. The former Tim Allen lackey ("Jungle 2 Jungle," "The Santa Clause," and the brutal "Joe Somebody") gives "Congeniality 2" a smooth sitcom sheen he's perfected over the years. His comic timing is deadly, and his acceptance of the malarkey that screenwriter Marc Lawrence (his 4th Bullock feature) is pimping here is astonishing. Eventually, the picture turns into a comic farce that has Gracie and Sam dressing up as drag queens, performing (though the moment calls simply for miming) "Proud Mary" in a nightclub, and fighting the bad guys in the middle of a suspiciously security-free casino. If that wasn't enough, Pasquin and Lawrence have the nerve to try and put an artificial message of "just be yourself" in the middle of this nonsense, which ends up giving the film an extended second ending that nobody asked for. "Miss Congeniality 2" is a sour, tedious, unfunny joke for 115 minutes. It may be armed, but it most certainly isn't fabulous. ------ 1/10
