Storyline

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 Huggo

Humorous runner up.
23 January 2001 | by ('Mats-ville) – See all my reviews

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?
