Miss Congeniality

Unpolished. Unkempt. Unleashed. Undercover.

In Miss Congeniality, Sandra Bullock stars as Gracie Hart, an FBI agent with a reputation for being aggressive and hard-nosed. Gracie has long wanted to duplicate the career of her deceased mother, also an FBI agent, who died in the line of duty. Her cantankerous nature has made her few friends, except her trusting, sensitive partner Eric Matthews (Benjamin Bratt). Gracie's true abilities are put to the test when she is called upon to infiltrate a Miss United States pageant after a terrorist threatens to bomb it. Gracie, who prides herself on her toughness, must now feminize her behavior to effectively participate in the pageant with the aid of Victor Melling (Michael Caine), a pompous consultant who dreams of whisking away Gracie's past self and creating "Gracie Lou Freebush" for an appreciative, all-American audience. After her arduous conversion, Gracie must play the role of beauty queen and FBI agent, and try not to blow her undercover outfit.

A comedy about love at last glance.

To stop the destruction of a local community center, Lucy takes a job working for George. Soon they are the perfect pair, completing each other's sentences and actions. But Lucy ends up managing every detail of George's life and being more of a "nanny" than a lawyer. When he pulls her away from a friend's wedding for an "emergency"--he can't decide what to wear to an event--she gets fed up, so she gives her "two weeks notice," but can she truly walk away from him and he from her?
