** 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...

* YourHeadAsplode: The Miss United States crown was rigged to blow off the head of whoever was crowned the winner of the contest. Fortunately, Gracie Hart finds this out and gets it off Miss Rhode Island's head before it detonates.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The first movie was entirely filmed in Texas, despite starting in New York (to make for a more convincing street, Austin had brown plastic bags of fake trash and fake NYC taxi cabs). The second is mostly on location, except for a New York scene which clearly has a Vegas hotel in the background.

When a terrorist threat is made to the Miss United States pageant/scholarship program, the FBI must send in one of their [[UndercoverModel undercover agents]] to find out the truth and stop disaster from occurring. But who can they send? Their list of possibilities is quickly narrowed to a single contender, Gracie Hart (SandraBullock), who is slender, pretty and fetching in a swimsuit. Now for the snag... she's also a hard-hitting, gun-toting tomboy whose demeanor is about as feminine as Creator/DolphLundgren. As events continue, it becomes apparent that disaster may well be nigh, and it's down to Hart to successfully imitate a pageant contestant, win the trust of the other ladies and discover who is planning to turn a harmless pageant into a horror movie.

Added DiffLines:
* AnnoyingLaugh: Whenever Gracie laughs, she also does an oinking-like snort.

Added DiffLines:
** 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).

Added DiffLines:
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Gracie and Victor, as best summed up by this: -->'''Victor''': In place of friends and relationships, you have sarcasm and a gun!\\ '''Gracie''': Oh, *I* have sarcasm? When every word that comes out of your mouth is dripping with disdain?

Added DiffLines:
* ExtremelyShortTimespan: While not an ImmediateSequel per se, the movie still takes place during Cheryl's one year reign as Miss United States.

Added DiffLines:
* TwentyMinutesIntoThePast: As noted above, the movie is set during the year after the original movie - despite being made actually five years later.
