Originally posted 12/23/2015 01:15PM

[BRIGHTCOVE "4671930315001"] Fifteen years ago this week, Miss Congeniality opened in theaters, on Dec. 22, 2000.

No, it's pretty much an out-and-out comedy, with Bullock starring as frumpy, awkward FBI agent Gracie Hart, who goes undercover at a beauty pageant and finds her inner swan. And don't forget that female-led comedies were hard to come by back then and are still pretty rare all these years later.

Being God is exhausting ... or is it?

During an interview with FOX affiliate Q13 in Seattle, to promote his new movie Now You See Me, Morgan Freeman appeared to be napping on-camera. This left costar Michael Caine to field the questions from anchors Kaci Aitchison and Bill Wixey about the crime thriller, which concerns a group of magicians who use their skills to rob banks.

These are the darkest days in Christopher Nolan's epic trilogy, a morality play that all but restages the French Revolution in its final chapter, as a new villain topples the city. It's an engrossing story with a real sense of peril – as long as you ignore the dangerously gaping plot holes and long running time.

So what makes Batman dig his cape out of mothballs after eight years?
