Legs waxed. Lips glossed. Gun ready. Meet Miss Congeniality [Side A]: Sandra Bullock is Gracie Hart, the tomboyish FBI agent who poses as a beauty contestant to unmask a criminal at the Miss United States pageant...even th... more »ough her idea of fashion accessories are the cuffs she snaps onto lawbreakers. The cast features Michael Caine as the harried consultant trying to turn this Dirty Harriet into a poised beauty. In Miss Congeniality 2 Armed and Fabulous [Side B], the undercover cover girl is feathered and funny, masquerading as a Las Vegas showgirl to rescue kidnapped friends (Heather Burns and William Shatner). Gracie, crime, casinos, floorshows, even a Vegas pirate ship - they're a sure bet for laughs!« less
"Sandra Bullock's Grace Hart is one of the best character's she ever created. This semi tough FBI agent with a heart of gold is very well expressed in these both Miss Congeniality films.
William Shatner is rediscovered and restarted in these films as the had been (Bert Parks like) MC . He acts the straight man for the humor around him and it works.
In the first film, Hart is sent in to the Miss USA beauty contest to protect the other gitl's and save the day. Benjamin Bratt plays her FBI partner. Micheal Caine is the groomer who makes her from FBI agent to Beauty Queen> Candice Bergan is the show organizer. (Boston Legal fans note, this film was FIRST!)
The second film, Grace who has become an FBI press darling, because everyone knows her from the USA contest and she can not go undercover. She has written a book and goes on press tours showcasing the NEW FBI. She is saddled with a partner who does not like her and comedy tensions ensue. Miss USA and the show's MC is kidnapped and Grace is on the case
Dont expect these films to be like the POLICE ACADEMY films, but dont expect to be great Oscar film making either...its good set of films to enjoy for just the laughes

"I liked the first movie a lot and wanted to see the second one. We didn't have a copy ay home so this was an easy choice. Everyone in the family likes both and it will see a lot of play."

"DVD description states "Widescreen"; however, that is for only the 1st movie. The 2nd movie is in horrible full screen/pan & scan. Would have been nice if this had been stated in the Product Details, for I would not have bought the collection."
Great movies, looks great on blu-ray

"These movies are both very guilty pleasures of mine and always have been ever since they came out. I have to admit that I wasn't really expecting it to have the greatest picture quality, but since I got a great deal I thought I'd give it a go. I was wrong, the movie looked a lot better on blu-ray than I expected. Sure it's not the best looking one out there, but it's definitely worth getting."
