Movie Synopsis: An FBI Special Agent (Sandra Bullock) who is not known for being overly feminine, to put it mildly, is thrown into the role of going undercover as Miss New Jersey at the Miss United States pageant to try and track down a dangerous killer.

Movie Review: This fun comedy had a lot of laughs in it, and is definitely a classic where actress Sandra Bullock plays up a funny character to great success.  Her ability to be awkward with the beauty queens while being totally comfortable in a male-dominated FBI environment is funny and an interesting social commentary for the time.  The storyline isn’t too serious and it is fun to just go along for the ride and enjoy.  Small and large laughs are found throughout the movie, and there are an array of very likeable and very non-likeable characters, sometimes in places you’d least expect.  Acting performances by Benjamin Bratt, Michael Caine, Candace Bergen, William Shatner, and of course Bullock in the lead role, are fantastic.  The result is a funny and enjoyable movie.

Overall Review: 4 stars out of 5
