When a terrorist threat is made to the Miss United States pageant/scholarship program, the FBI must send in one of their [[UndercoverModel undercover agents]] to find out the truth and stop disaster from occurring. But who can they send? Their list of possibilities is quickly narrowed to a single contender, Gracie Hart (Bullock), who is slender, pretty and fetching in a swimsuit. Now for the snag... she's also a hard-hitting, gun-toting tomboy whose demeanor is about as feminine as Creator/DolphLundgren. As events continue, it becomes apparent that disaster may well be nigh, and it's down to Hart to successfully imitate a pageant contestant, win the trust of the other ladies and discover who is planning to turn a harmless pageant into a horror movie.
