Pleasant and entertaining; some innuendo and profanity.

Happy film that every girl will laugh at Bullocks tomboy character.

This giddy little movie starring Sandra Bullock is about a tremedously boyish FBI agent that has to go undercover as a pagent princess in Miss America. She HATES pagents, but to keep her job she has to. She has to change her wardrobe,hair, actually put on makeup, walk normally, and look good in a bathingsuit while trying to hide the FBI badge she has stored under sleeve. There is really nothing bad but an explosion. Also pagents is a product of consumerism. Some of the pagent girls do get drunk. Nothing bad happens. It is a very funny and good movie. All ages is actually good for this movie. But I would recommend it for 10+.

Miss Congeniality Review

Rating: ON 11+ for language, adult content, violence; with our contain to watch out for. ""it's ok to watch at any age" i said but 'bull****' and other words are not ok to let younger kids use, i was the oldest watching it, Off for 5 and under, Iffy for 6-10 and On for 11 and up, i know they are not supposed to repeat or say (bulls--t, and more) should be PG or PG-13."

Funniest movie eva!

LOL LOL LOL LOL! One of my favorite movies ever! Sandra Bullock did a great job on this movie! There is some violence and some guns. There is a little bit of sex talk. The most inappropiate thing is the language and it isnt that bad. This movie will make you smile and cry(of laghter) and smile all over again. A must see movie.

Amusing undercover comedy for teens and up

Sandra Bullock has again proven she is a delight to watch, and with Michael Caine as one of the best co-stars in any comedy I've ever seen, you can't miss this. Parents: There is a lot of sexual humor, language, and some violence. Bottom Line: With action, heart, and humor, this is a great pick for any families with teens. Thanks for reading! - Movie Man

Cool movie! Sandra did a great job.

I love this movie! Its so funny and cool. Sandra did a great job and is really funny in this movie. There is some fighting and shooting, a little bit of sexual content and some bad words. In think this movie is fine for kids 11 and up, but a little iffy for 9 and under. You should really see this movie. Another funny movie with Sandra Bullcok in it.

You are the Crown

This silly comedy is a great flick to watch on a mother-daughter date. Parents should know that there is very little violence - some self-defense training and sparring between friends, with some fist punches. Guns are pulled a few times, (while no one is killed or seriously wounded there is an element of suspense) a man is shot in the arm though nothing much is shown, a man nearly chokes to death, and there is a general feel of menace from the villains who plant bombs in an attempt to blow up the winner of the Miss United States Pageant, thought this is lightened by the feel of the movie. There is some sexual innuendo including two direct references: "You are not having sex on this stage" and a man asking a woman to have sex with him. Being a pageant there is cleavage but not nearly as much as you would think, and some easy talk about breasts and butts. Male agents watch women through Gracie's camera. A character gets drunk and characters drink beer throughout, and there are several strong religious exclamations and a few mild swear words. Characters include Gracie Hart, the unpolished excuse for a woman who gets put undercover at a beauty pageant to capture terrorists, and is about as far from Miss New Jersey as you can get. Played by Sandra Bullock, she is funny, charming and wonderfully portrayed. Her counterpart Eric (Benjamin Bratt) is equally charming and funny. Michael Caine plays the man hired to turn Grace into the pageant queen. The movie is funny, friendly and well acted. A wonderful choice for teens. The role models are good as are the messages, and the characters are well played and fun to watch. Miss Congeniality is a comedy that I recommend wholeheartedly.

Hilarious film

Hilarious film. Some moderate innuendo and mild language but nothing too strong for 12-year-olds. There is one violent scene where a number of self-defence techniques are demonstrated in front of an audience. This scene is more humorous that troubling and somewhat educational.

Lots of fun for 13+ crowd!

Much better than the 2nd movie, Miss Congeniality is super fun & entertaining! There is a perfect amount of humor here, Sandra Bullock is one fantastic actress! When FBI agent Gracie Hart sets off to become a contestant in a beauty pageant, ordered by the FBI, she must make drastic changes to herself including her appearance - so much that they must hire her a consultant to help make the transformation. She later uncovers a dangerous plot that has been secretly planted to destroy the entire pageant and everyone in it. Language has some harsh words but not too bad, like @ss, cr@p, da*n, sh*t. Sexual content has some innuendo including a song Gracie likes to tease one of her partners with, some skimpy outfits used in the pageant, a kiss, flirting between FBI partners, a few sexual remarks and some jokes about virginity and relationships, a discussion about a sexual assault. Violence has guns, bombs & explosions, pushing, hitting and martial arts scenes, also some verbal abuse. There is drinking including a pageant member gets drunk at a club during a night out with the girls. Overall, a great film worth owning and watching over and over! Okay for ages 13+!
