A tomboyish FBI agent has to rediscover her airs & graces and transform from an ugly duckling into a golden goose to infiltrate a beauty pageant which has been targeted by a terrorist threat.
Not to be taken seriously, this film is what it is, good fun and nothing more. Of Sandra Bullock's earlier work, this is her most charming performance.
A sequel followed, but this is the kind of film which works only the once.
