Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous

March 24, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

One of my favorite actresses is Sandra Bullock so I am pleased when Dove can award the Dove Seal to any movie in which she stars. Dove couldn't approve the original "Miss Congeniality" because of some profanities. But in this sequel, Producer Sandra Bullock has toned down the language enough for us [...]

The special effects are great and Joe moves [...]
