Miss Congeniality (2000)
I’m finding the equation “Sandra Bullock = wait for video” truer every day. The flick takes on the already beaten to death and then some subject matter of beauty pageants. There are a couple of funny moments, mainly due to Michael Caine and his quest to be in EVERY movie ever, but the rest is horrible slapstick. This film has the WORST forced romance I’ve ever seen between Benjamin Bratt and Bullock, it’s not just bad it’s insultingly bad. The film also has this very unsettling misogynistic tone through out the duration, even more odd when you figure in Bullock as a producer.
Nate’s Grade: C-
