Sandra Bullock makes a decent comedy look like a million bucks with her exceptionally appealing personality. She plays the rough-around-the-edges FBI agent who is assigned the job of going undercover at a beauty pageant when the police start receiving bomb threats from an anonymous psycho. brings his usual lack of charisma to his role as the fellow agent who keeps threatening to romance Bullock, and it’s to her credit that Bullock is talented enough to make it look like good chemistry even when it really isn’t. Candice Bergen and Michael Caine are at the top of the excellent supporting cast.
