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. Add a cheerfully self-mocking supporting cast and a knowingly tongue in cheek approach and it's at the more tolerable end of this kind of feelgood pap.

A slight and sweet film - Sandra Bullock looks like she's having fun, and it comes across on screen. Still, it's pretty much fluff entertainment as far as I'm concerned. A nice appetizer, but nowhere near filling enough for a full meal.

As heavy-handed as this was, I pretty much enjoyed watching it. Sandra Bullock gets good pay for many reasons, not the least of which is her ability to sell a film. Stupid plot, dumb jokes, some good little moments. OK to pass time with.

Without Bullock, it wouldn't have worked.

Sandra Bullock is an anchor that makes the film shine in certain scenes, but it's hard to get beyond the silly premise and groan-worthy lines of dialogue.

Cute, sassy, funny and endearing!

Sandra Bullock stars as a rough tom-boyish Gracie Hart, an FBI agent assigned to go undercover at a beauty pageant to uncover a suspected bomb plot. To coach her along the way, the Feds enlist the help of pageant veteran Victor Melling (Michael Caine) who is given the role of transforming the doughnut scoffing Gracie into a genuine Miss America competitor. 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 his...
