Review

Our Score
Sandra Bullock returns as clumsy FBI agent Gracie Hart in this formulaic sequel to the hit action comedy. Picking up where the original movie left off, the story involves Hart reluctantly accepting a PR role as "the face of the FBI" after her new-found fame - as the woman who saved the life of Miss United States - makes it impossible for her to operate undercover. Groomed to perfection, the Bureau's poster girl soon begins to relish her position, much to the distaste of her tough new bodyguard (Regina King). What follows is a handbags-at-dawn mix of bitchiness, cat fights and pratfalls as the duo clash repeatedly, only for girlie soul-searching, a trip to Vegas and a kidnapping case to resolve their animosity. It's all very predictable and largely hit and miss, with only a handful of sequences to match its predecessor's breezy vitality. Were it not for Bullock's natural comic timing, the movie would fall apart, but it's still sad to see such a personable star having to work so hard to keep a lazy cash-in afloat.

Summary

FBI agent Gracie Hart is taken off active duty and made the face of the bureau's publicity campaign, but would rather catch crooks than be the focus of media attention - so when her friends are kidnapped, she disobeys orders to run her own undercover investigation with the help of a short-tempered colleague. Comedy sequel, starring Sandra Bullock, Regina King, William Shatner and Heather Burns.
