After the heavy-hitting double-bill of 'No Country For Old Men' and 'The Orphanage' which I saw yesterday, I needed something a little light tonight, so I pulled this from the Deril & Anat Collection.
I can't believe how much I enjoyed it! It was totally charming and cute and that is 100% Sandra Bullock's performance. The story itself is kinda lame and tired, but it didn't seem to matter much. I was just immersed in watching Bullock be fetching, clumsy, sweet, sarcastic, goofy & clever all rolled into one.
Of course, part of the story is that she appears 'regular' (read: eyebrows not plucked, wearing glasses, acting tomboyish, snorting when she laughs, eating like a pig, etc...) until she gets a thorough makeover working undercover at the beauty pageant and then OMG she was beautiful all along! Well DUH.
It's easy to pick apart a movie like this, but the supporting roles were cute too (Michael Caine, William Shatner in the Bert Parks role, and Heather Burns as Miss Rhode Island were all stand-out), and not to repeat myself but Bullock really was a joy to watch here. I haven't liked her in much since 'Speed', where no one had heard of her and she stole the film. This is that sensation for her all over again.
A good date flick.
