Miss congeniality

DVD - 2005

Her legs are waxed, her lips are glossed, her gun is ready. FBI agent Gracie Hart is going undercover as one of the hopefuls to be the next Miss United States. But Gracie, whose idea of a fashion accessory is the set of handcuffs she slaps onto lawbreakers, doesn't have a beauty pageant bone in her body.

Review by Publisher Summary 1

Sandra Bullock stars as a bumbling female FBI agent assigned to go undercover as a participant in the Miss United States beauty pageant when it is discovered that one of the contestants is being targeted for murder. Benjamin Bratt leads the undercover team, while also playing the reluctant love interest. Candice Bergen and William Shatner manage the pageant and hire Michael Caine to turn Bullock from rough and tumble agent to stunning beauty queen. The physical transformation is impressive, although the klutzy personality remains. Everything seems to be fine once the killer is suddenly caught, but Bullock suspects there is more to this story, and the truth eventually unfolds with an unexpected twist. Bullock was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress.
