Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous Summary

Several weeks after the events of the first film, in which FBI agent, Gracie Hart infiltrated the Miss United States beauty pageant, her new-found fame results in her cover being blown while she is trying to prevent a bank heist.

To capitalize on Gracie’s publicity the FBI decide to make her the new “face” of the bureau. After being dumped by her boyfriend, fellow agent Eric Matthews (who gets relocated to Miami), Gracie agrees to the reassignment.

When FBI agent Sam Fuller gets relocated to New York City from Chicago, Gracie doesn’t take to her at all. The feeling seems to be mutual as the FBI eventually makes Sam Gracie’s bodyguard, much to Sam’s disgust.

Ten months later, Gracie begins appearing on morning television shows, such as Live with Regis and KellyThe Oprah Winfrey Show and The Food Channel, giving out fashion advice and promoting her book.

However, when Gracie’s friends, Cheryl Fraser (the current Miss United States) and Stan Fields, are kidnapped in Las Vegas, she goes undercover to try to rescue them, accompanied by Sam who is following up on her own lead after video footage of the abduction suggests that Fields was the target rather than Cheryl. This puts Gracie at odds with the FBI, who are unwilling to lose their mascot and are unsure if she’s still up to the task.

The kidnappers move Cheryl and Stan to the ship at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino which they plan to sink. Soon afterwards, Gracie, Sam and Joel (Gracie’s new stylist) arrive at the Oasis Drag club where they end up singing Tina Turner songs and are given Cheryl and Stan’s location by a contestant dressed as Dolly Parton. It is then up to Gracie to save the day once more, this time with the help of agent Sam.

Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The sequel to Miss Congeniality is just as fun and clumsy as the first.
