21 Ways Miss Congeniality Is Still Your Favorite Movie Ever

Jul 26 2016 - 9:30am

Sandra Bullock [1] is still one of our role models, so we feel like anytime is a good time to celebrate one of her best movies of all time: Miss Congeniality. The film came out in 2000, and it's still one of the best female-centric comedies of the 21st century. Bullock, who turns 52 this week, is a genius, and she portrays a lead that's both relatable and badass. (Remember S.I.N.G.?) She's the ideal heroine, and it's time we give credit where credit is due. Take a minute to remember why you loved — and should still love — Miss Congeniality.
