Miss Congeniality is an American film about an FBI agent who is sent in undercover to the Miss United States beauty pageant in order to prevent the bombing of the event by a mystery criminal.

This film was just too predictable. Trying to put action and a beauty pageant seemed like a funny idea to me at the beginning of the film, however as it went on, the two different storylines seemed to grow further and further apart, making it quite boring to watch.

Also, it wasn’t the funniest comedy of all time in my opinion. There were some stand-out jokes that were actually hilarious, but for the majority of the film, they were very few and far between, which was very disappointing to see.

Coupled with a relatively poor and ridiculously predictable story, which made me at times think that I had actually seen the movie before seeing as I was able to foresee exactly what was going to happen at every part of the plot, this was not the most enjoyable film ever, and because of that, I’ll give it a 5.9.
