Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While there may not be many surprises, there's little to dislike either."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"A rinky-dink comedy."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Pleasant and entertaining; for teens and older."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Sandra Bullock (who also produces) takes a lame idea of a script, splashes her considerable allure all over it, and comes away with an amiable, light-hearted holiday charmer."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Predictably cute and idiotically misleading."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Unless you think it's a riot to watch Bullock fall over herself repeatedly in high heels, this Miss is a mess."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"For Bullock fans, it's a delight, jolly junk in the season to be jolly."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Its story is far from logical, let alone realistic, yet we laugh and completely buy into the fun."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Basically, this is like a really bad film from the eighties, that seems to be remade with Sandra Bullock digitally grafted onto the horrible plot."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
"Convenient bimbo stereotypes, bolstered and magnified."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Pro forma hilarity."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"There's something so friendly and unabashedly silly about this production that it pretty much won me over."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Bullock's talent for gentle farce is not enough to carry her here; there are only so many times she can get a laugh out of stumbling in her high heels and talking with her mouth full."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Miss Congeniality isn't awful, but it isn't utterly entertaining or incredibly original either, it's just right in the middle."
‑ Susannah Breslin, Film Threat
"No one does this kind of thing better than Bullock, but one wonders for how long she can pull it off. Perhaps for as long as it pays."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
