Undercover FBI agent Gracie Hart shows no signs of having any femininity in her demeanor or appearance. Generally a bright and capable agent, she is in trouble at work when she makes an error in judgment in a case which results in a near disaster. As such, one of her by-the-books colleagues, Eric Matthews, who has never shown any inclination of thinking outside the box, is assigned to lead the high profile case of a terrorist coined The Citizen instead of her, while she is facing possible disciplinary action. Gracie pieces together the evidence to determine that The Citizen's next target will be the Miss United States beauty pageant. The pageant represents everything that Gracie abhors. Despite Gracie's mannish demeanor, Eric, with no other undercover female agent remotely fitting the demographic, assigns her to go undercover as a pageant contestant to see if she can flush out The Citizen, who is perhaps one of the other contestants. Although the pageant administration, led by former ... Written by
There was originally supposed to be a storyline which included Gracie's mother. In the first scene after young Gracie gets in trouble for beating up the two boys, her mother was called in to the school to reprimand her daughter. The story behind her mother was that she was a top FBI agent who was killed in the line of duty and Gracie became an agent to make her mother proud. This was cut because director Donald Petrie thought the whole story was too much and that Sandra Bullock was already bringing enough sympathy to the character without having to bring in another storyline.

When at the orientation breakfast, Gracie only spreads some of the pasty thing on her Bagel, yet when talking to Hawaii, it is neatly spread all over the bagel. *** This is because Gracie continues to spread cream cheese on the bagel as the other girls talk/argue. You can see this action through the floral centerpiece. *** See more »
In place of friends and relationships, you have sarcasm and a gun!
Oh, *I* have sarcasm? When every word that comes out of your mouth is dripping with disdain?
Ah! That is because I am a miserable, grumpy elitist - and that works for me!
You know what? I don't have relationships because I don't want them, an-an-and I don't have friends because I work 24/7. And you have no idea why I am the way that I am.

This movie has it's funny moments (besides the fact Bill Shatner IS part of the cast and not a cameo) and tries to break some stereotypes exploited in subtle-brilliant DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. I can't put my finger on it...but for the first time in my life, I really fell for Sandra Bullock. I found her quite charming as the rough, tom-boy character. Her eating habits was riotous and (as we all knew) her "transformation" was stunning--kind of proving Hollywood is full of NORMAL looking ladies that have great make-up artists and breast boosters. But there was something different here with Sandra. Exiting her "changing hanger" she showed a beautiful shape--proving women (REAL looking women) ARE beautiful. I never knew Sandra had shape?
