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

Trivia

In the control booth at the Miss United States Pageant, there is a visible sign in the background of a Canadian Maple Leaf in the middle of a red circle with a red slash through it. Although it had been denied that it was put there on purpose, it is supposed to be an "inside joke/purposeful comment" on how many movies are now being made in Canada. (Mostly due to the lower production costs up there due to the pitiful exchange rate between the US and Canadian dollar...at least a 40% savings on crew wages, hotel costs, etc.) See more »

Bullock Scores
12 May 2004 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

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.
