Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days.

When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks in London, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguises herself as him, and proceeds to fall for one of her soccer teammates. Little does she realize she's not the only one with romantic troubles, as she, as he, gets in the middle of a series of intermingled love affairs.
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.

How many crapola pageants have I seen in my life? A ton of meaningless models parading around in swimsuits claiming to want to help the deaf orphans of the world while posing nude in some off the wall porno magazine. If you have ever seen - A dethroned beauty queen - A hacked off runner up - Or an incredibly stupid talent, then you just have to watch this movie. It is so incredibly hilarious at putting every single stereo-type out there. I remember watching Miss America years ago and Miss Indiana had a cow when she was named first runner-up. I also remember some pretty lame talents like "I want to be a secretary" and these girls were top ten on national tv. William Shatner and Candice Bergen are A+++++++++++++ in this movie. Watch it and laugh for days.
