* HotterAndSexier: With an extra IncrediblyLamePun for a bonus. When he see Cheryl's baton twirling at the preliminaries at the Alamo, she does a very innocent routine to patriotic music with a very conservative outfit. Later on, after Gracie encourages her to be more confident in herself, she does a much sexier routine to hip-hop music (with batons on fire, hence the "hotter.")

* IncrediblyLamePun: The New York/Hawaii rivalry with all the barbs thrown back and forth finally culminated on pageant day. In all the chaos Hawaii asks New York, "What, no insults today?" New York, too stressed to really give a damn, halfheartedly snarks, "You're a Don Ho."

** Also, the actresses are actually doing the talent tricks - except for Cheryl with the fire batons, given Heather Burns was willing to learn how to twirl, but not to expose herself to flames (a professional replaces her).

** In fact, this movie is one of the all-time great cases of RecycledSoundtrack, as the film is ''packed'' with [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0385307/soundtrack cues from other movies]] (including two other Sandra Bullock movies, ''TwoWeeksNotice'' and '''the first''' ''Miss Congeniality''). This does have some original music (by John Van Tongeren, Christophe Beck and RandyEdelman), but apparently not much...
