Because of the notoriety she gained from the Miss United States pageant, Gracie Hart's life as an undercover F.B.I. Agent is over. In addition, Agent Eric Matthews broke off their relationship which she did not take well. Begrudgingly on the advice her boss, Director Harry McDonald, Gracie decides to become the F.B.I.'s media relations officer.

Hey Hart, can you give me Miss Arizona's number?
Why would I do that Clonsky?

Having looked forward for a long time to see this film finally released, my wife and I were not disappointed. Not only did Gracie pick up from the last story and run, there was a great enhancement with the addition of Regina King as "Sam" in the story. Gracie and Sam were incredibly different, but remarkably alike.
Of course, bringing back the majority of the original supporting roles & characters was excellent - as well as the tie-in to Eric with the tearful telephone break-up.
Do not hesitate to see this film, for you will be pleased with some great lines and equally-great physical humor. I believe that Sandra Bullock is developing a physical humor persona in the style of Lucille Ball.
Great job, Sandra. Now, if only you can get your personal life in some sense of order?!
