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 winner Cathy Morningside and long time host Stan Fields, provide the FBI with access to the pageant, Cathy in particular is less than thrilled to have a non-credible Gracie posing as a contestant which she feels will ruin the pageant. The FBI enlist the assistance of former pageant contestant coach Victor Melling, who is facing his own disgrace associated with the pageant, to do the near impossible task of transforming Gracie, not only into a woman, but a credible beauty pageant contestant. As Gracie proceeds in the transformation, she gets to know the other contestants, not only as potential criminals, but also as real people. She also discovers that another sinister element is present at the pageant. She will do whatever it takes to quash that element and protect her new friends, namely the other innocent contestants. But now displaying some femininity, Gracie begins to have more womanly feelings herself and in turn attracts the attention of men, one in particular about who she is happy.
Plot: When the local FBI office receives a letter from a terrorist known only as ‘The Citizen’, it’s quickly determined that he’s planning his next act at the Miss America beauty pageant. Because tough-as-nails Gracie Hart is the only female Agent at the office, she’s chosen to go undercover as the contestant from New Jersey.

silly material made worthwhile
Good-natured and funny comedy has Bullock perfectly cast as an uptight, tomboyish federal agent who—for the first time in her entire life—decides to embrace her femininity after she’s assigned to go undercover at a beauty pageant to try and apprehend an elusive criminal. She’s never even worn a dress, much less makeup and accessories, and the results are hilarious as she tries to do her job and be a credible contestant as well. Film’s setup and execution are predictable, yet kept afloat by a meaningful story, good lines, and big time laughs. Bullock is as appealing as she’s ever been, and surrounded here by a first-rate supporting cast. ***
A good solid comedy for Sandra Bullock
It seems we have been getting our share of Beauty Pageant comedies lately (`Beautiful’, `Drop Dead Gorgeous’). `Miss Congeniality’ is by far the biggest production and the best of the lot. Sandra Bullock (who also co-produced) plays Gracie Hart, a homely FBI agent who goes undercover at the Miss United States beauty pageant to catch a terrorist who has threatened to blow up the pageant.
The story is funny and Bullock shows her range, proving to be an excellent comedian in addition to her proven talents as a dramatic actor. The writers poke the typical fun at pageants and contestants throughout the film, but they develop a conscience at the end when Gracie gets teary-eyed admitting what a great experience it was. There is plenty of silly slapstick humor. Bullock does her runway thing with aplomb, and her tongue firmly in cheek. Michael Caine is wonderfully droll as the beauty consultant who is given the impossible task of turning the ugly duckling into a swan.
Interestingly, this is not the first film where Sandra Bullock makes the beast to beauty transition. In one of her early films in 1991 (`Love Potion Number 9′), she plays a geek who discovers a love potion and turns into a knockout. That film was an early indication of her comedic talents, but she eschewed zany comedy for dramatic and romantic roles for many years after that. It is good to see her return to it.
This is a very light and entertaining film that is easy to watch and easy to forget. At over $100 million gross it had plenty of mass appeal. The comedy is silly but fun, and Candice Bergen, Michael Caine and William Shatner provide some terrific moments in supporting roles. I rated it a 7/10. It is a good, solid comedy.
