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.

"Miss Congeniality" is a fun little comedy with Bullock at the center playing an FBI agent who has to go undercover as a beauty pageant contestant.

A must see for Bullock fans and a fun watch for most others.
