|Source of story
||A continuation of the Miss Congeniality story
||Characters – Marc Lawrence, Katie Ford, Caryn Lucas
||Sandra Bullock, Regina King, Enrique Murciano, William Shatner, Ernie Hudson, Heather Burns, Treat Williams
||Gracie has written a book and is the celebrity face of the FBI when her friend Miss America and the spokesman for the beauty contest are kidnapped in Las Vegas. She and her FBI bodyguard are flown in to hold press conferences, but instead against orders they get on the case. Can they avoid being sent back to New York, and rescue their friends?
||Some celebrity interviews, a lot of agro between Gracie and her protector. Scenes of the kidnapped duo in a shed in the desert. Some involvement in the Las Vegas night life and eventually a visit to a drag venue where the girls have to pretend to be boys pretendingt to be girls.
||I laughed quite a bit and happily tolerated the contrivances in the script intended to give the actors good lines and actions, one involving the real Dolly Parton. The critics did not like it much but where’s the standard? There is a damn sight worse out there and if you liked the first film you’ll enjoy this.
