"Miss Congeniality 2" Continues PG-13 Inappropriateness
- Thursday, March 24, 2005
The dialogue is cute and often funny. When Bullock, as the elderly Jewish woman in disguise, forgets that she is wheelchair-bound and stands up, Fuller tries to cover up and says, “You can walk!” “Oh yes,” Bullock says. “Praise Jesus!” “Moses!” Fuller corrects her. We get a little more mockery of beauty pageant participants, when Cheryl says, “I learned a lot from my grandmother – specifically, how to kill a chicken.” Even Fuller has some good lines, such as when she says, “Plenty of guys have broken up with me. You just beat ‘em up and move on.” Definitely the stuff of chick-flicks.
Because of the content, parents should weigh this one very carefully, and my recommendation would be to err on the side of caution. On the other hand, adults, particularly women, will probably enjoy “Miss Congeniality 2” – even if it won’t be winning any awards.
AUDIENCE: Adults only
