Personally, I thought this was the best thing, Sandra Bullock has ever done. The plot seems to get lost every now and then, but the laughs don't and there's lots of them.
There seems to be a crazy side to beauty contests and this story taps into it. Everyone seems to be having a good time including Candice Bergen and William Shatner.
There was, also, a moving feel-good ending that satisfied the sensitive side of my nature. Three stars.
