This next installment of Miss Congeniality stars Sandra Bullock once again as FBI agent Gracie Hart, along with Heather Burns & William Shatner reprising their roles from Miss Congeniality. Well, unfortunately no Benjamin “Actor Cop” Bratt this time around, (Televisions Law & Order, Miss Congeniality, Catwoman). Regina King (Jerry Maguire) Co-stars in this picture, as butt kicking Agent Sam Fuller, who has a tendency to give someone a thorough beating whenever the opportunity presents itself. Never, have I seen a better ass kicking female as Regina King’s Sam Fuller. I really feel that Sandra Bullock & Regina King had great onscreen chemistry, quickly I can begin to picture them in a third installment of the Miss Congeniality franchise. Now, another stand out performance for me, came from Diedrich Bader who plays Joel, Gracie “FBI Barby” Hart’s fashion designer, who steals alot of the scenes.

In Miss Congeniality 2, Agent Gracie Hart has been appointed “The Face of the FBI” due to the fact that her newfound fame after working undercover as a contestant in the Miss United States Pageant is blowing her cover as an undercover field agent. Gracie soon begins to fit into her new role as spokesmodel, but not before long chaos ensues as Pageant winner Cheryl Fraier & MC Stan Fields are kidnapped (Heather Burns & William Shatner) although Gracie is supposed to be sidelined she decides to takes matters into her own hands….
