Miss Congeniality

Miss Congeniality
-Gracie Hart is a female FBI agent who has to be the biggest tomboy alive. She seems to have not one shred of femininity. She is bright, and also capable of holding up against her male coworkers, but when her and a fellow agent named Eric Matthews start pursuing a terrorist known only as The Citizen, it almost turns to a disaster. Gracie then discovers that the next target of this terrorist will be the Miss United States beauty pageant, being held in Austin, Texas. It is then decided that they need an undercover officer and Gracie is chosen

-The pageant represents everything Gracie does not like: skimpy clothes, female beauty, modeling and talent shows. The FBI call in a former pageant coach named Victor Melling to train Gracie in the art of beauty pageants. As things continue, she begins to befriend the contestants and she will do whatever necessary to protect the innocent while pursuing the criminal, who is at the pageant and is also one of the contestants.
