Tomboy FBI agent Bullock has to undergo a serious makeover to go undercover at a national beauty pageant to find a potential bomber. Benjamin Bratt is her colleague and operations boss, with whom some animosity and romantic sparks are generated. This movie resembles 1999's "Drop Dead Gorgeous" in some respects, especially Candice Bergen as a bitter, aging beauty queen in a role Kirstie Alley played to the savage hilt in the earlier film. This one is more gentle, less blackly comic. Michael Caine is hilarious and lovely as a poofy fashion consultant who has to bring Bullock up to snuff, William Shatner terrific as the overripe and aging host of the show, and relative newcomer Heather Burns delightful as air-headed Miss Rhode Island (majoring in nuclear engineering with a specialty in particle physics). A hoot while it lasts but eminently forgettable.
