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 winner Cathy Morningside and long time host Stan Fields, provide the F.B.I. 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 F.B.I. enlist the assistance of former pageant contestant coach Victor Melling, who is facing his own disgrace associated with the pageant, to do the nearly 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, and in turn, attracts the attention of men, one in particular about whom 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.

Bullock is totally winning, and wins this contest hands down. Worth it just for her!
Miss Congeniality (2000)
A funny plot full of clever hooks, and an amazing, charming, full on performance by Sandra Bullock make this movie really funny. And warm. And fun.
It would be a mistake and shame to expect more from it, and there are times where it gets a little too silly for its own good, including some of the last half hour. But what works, works, and the first hour of build up, and of Bullock’s transformation (and her sparks of humor and authenticity through it all) are first rate. Michael Caine supports her as he supports everyone in the business, with class and finesse. Benjamin Bratt, playing a kind of distant love interest for Bullock’s FBI agent cum beauty contestant, is a little to aware of his good looks and doesn’t quite relax enough to make him a star.
He could learn a lot from Caine and Bullock, who are both consummate actors capable of saving, and even lifting up, a mostly routine production. For lightweight fare, it’s a joy. By the way, the only “Miss United States” beauty pageant is an “on-line” contest, with a hefty entry fee, and seems to be a commercial and possibly exploitive tie-in to the movie. The famous (and infamous) national pageants are Miss America and Miss USA. This movie is meant to play off the stereotypes of what the contestants are often like, and it provides for some pretty good fodder.
Not totally good, but it has some charm
Believe me, I would be the last one to reccomend Miss Congeniality. It has a conventional (not Congenial) script, dumb supporting characters (even though I can’t resist laughing at William Shatner singing at the beauty pageant) and the usual sitcom drek. But at least it has 2 things going for it, sandra Bullock who here has more charm and sexuality than ever (even if in parts Mel Gisbon in What Women Want has more femeninity than Bullock here) and it is better than Beautiful, the horrible piece from Sally Field.
The story has Bullock as a tomboy fbi agent who has to go undercover as a beauty pageant contender to solve a case. Basic, sure, but the usual dumb jokes (even if a couple are amusing) and dumb characters bring this film to a bad place. However, Michael Caine is good for a few chuckles as a “pageant consultant”. It isn’t the worst, but not really compatable to go up against films liek Cast Away, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Finding Forrester. C
