I have a terrible admission to make...I like Sandra Bullock. I'm not proud of it, but her brand of kooky girl next door charm is quite appealing to me. So sue me. This is a typical example of the kind of one idea formulaic comedy that I usually detest, but Michael Caine's amusingly disdainful gay Henry Higgins plays off Sandra really well, and there are some genuinely funny lines.

Along the way she discovers her feminine side, realizes that beauty pageant participants should not ridiculed, and accepts that they have brains as well as beauty. Benjamin Bratt plays Bullock's fellow agent who is a cocky, overconfident ladies man. This movie is funny from beginning to end and pokes fun at the beauty pageant scene very effectively and it is enchanting to watch how Gracie turns into a beautiful swan. Caine excels in …
