Consensus: Though critics say Bullock is funny and charming, she can't overcome a bad script that makes the movie feel too much like a fluffy, unoriginal sitcom.

While there may not be many surprises, there's little to dislike either.

Unless you think it's a riot to watch Bullock fall over herself repeatedly in high heels, this Miss is a mess.

For Bullock fans, it's a delight, jolly junk in the season to be jolly.

Michael Dequina

Its story is far from logical, let alone realistic, yet we laugh and completely buy into the fun.

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.

I more or less like what this movie represents or could have been rather than what it actually is. Like, the concept of a kickass FBI agent entering a beauty… More

I was committed to watching the Sandra Bullock Saturday extravaganza on ABCFamily, but I only made it through this. The movie's fine. Sandra is likeable… More
