Tough FBI agent Gracie Hart (Bullock) must go undercover at the Miss USA Pageant after the event is threatened by terrorists. Eric (Bratt) is a helpful fellow agent (and potential beau) while down-on-his-luck consultant Victor Melling (Caine) is hired to girly-up Gracie and make her pageant material. Predictable comedy shows flashes of witty satire but lives up to its name by easing up on intended targets at the moment of truth. Bullock, as always, is game and both Bergen as a former beauty queen turned pageant manager and Shatner as unctuous pageant host add a spark to the proceedings.

When this movie came out, my sister and I watched it over and over again. The cops need to go undercover in the Miss America pageant for a bomb threat that was received. The only person that would be good enough was Gracie, Sandra Bullock. She gets totally made over, from and sloppy and mannerless, to beautiful and poised. After a while, when the cops think that the threat is fake, Gracie begs to stay because she thinks the threat is real. They make her give up her badge to stay at the pageant. The threat was made by the evil pageant director and her son. Once the cops realized they were wrong, they rushed back. Gracie was the runner-up and ripped the crown off the winner's head and saved her head from being blown up. In all this movie is hilarious!
