Review wanted: Miss Congeniality

How is this movie?
It made some big bucks considering Sandra has had some hits and misses in the past.
I'm a mark for Sandra Bullock but I haven't come around to renting it yet.

Great comedy with some slapstick. Very entertaining. I really liked Bullock in this type of role and Michael Caine's performance was terrific.

The DVD is top notch. Pretty much "loaded" with two audio commentaries, one with producer Sandra Bullock and the co-screenwriter and another with the director, two featurettes including bloopers and deleted scenes.

Really a "fun" movie and a highly valued DVD.

Love the movie. Saw it on DVD only. Bought it used at BB.

Watched it tons of times

The commentary by Sandra is very funny. She is will to laugh at herself.

If you're a Sandra Bullock fan (as I am), you will not be disappointed in the movie, or in the DVD.

This DVD is pretty plentiful on the used market and very worth it IMHO. I really liked it and it has plently of extras.

Always people slamming the snapper case

Anyways, great movie with a great DVD. The Sandra Bullock commentary track alone is well worth the purchase. One of the funniest commentaries you'll find.

Video is crisp and clear (only amplified by the colorful scenes from the movie) , audio fairs the same, as musical sequences provide near demo material for my HT....

If you're a Sandra Bullock fan, you'll probably like it. My wife is and did. I, however, could hardly stand watching the entire thing. But that's just me...

...really, for the price of the movie, even if one brought someone along to the show and even got someone else to pay your way, buying the DVD is significantly cheaper. At the "show" you can't rewatch, pause, reverse, fast-foward, slow-motion, surf between TV channels and back, bake a cake, smoke a brisket etc... there are no special edition features, running commentaries or deleted scenes at the movie theater. There are teasers and trailers though. I'll conceed to that only.

Miss Congeniality is affordable on DVD.

Very funny and entertaining especially if you're a S.B. fan.
