This movie is often appeared in the recommendation videos that I watched on YouTube so here we are. First off, I love Sandra's character, as the tomboyish agent. She is the perfect person to play that role and it is so convincing when she and Agent Eric went on a sparring while on debate on her involvement as the undercover agent. 

I got so much laughter from this movie both from the plot and the dialogues. Especially when Gracie is in training  with Victor. She is everything he didn't want and to think that he successfully turned her over in just two days? Wow. She does look different from her tomboy self. The glow up. In just two days. Wish I could do that.

I could easily enjoyed the first half of the movie, with no stress, just laughter. The second half is where it got interesting with focusing on catching the citizen. The unexpected plot twist definitely got me doubting either Gracie are on the right track on catching the terrorist and prevent the disaster to happen. I still think it was one of the contestant and when it came to the light on who, it was quite shocking to say the least. I truly enjoyed every minute of the movie and it definitely will make it on my favorite list. I just loves the way they ended this movie.
