Molly is reluctant at first but ultimately decides to accept Ranford's offer as she needs money to bail her gambling father out of debt. She undergoes a makeover, then goes undercover as sorority sister Brook Stonebridge. Molly meets Sasha Stolezinsky, the head of the sorority, and other members, including Becky, Cotton, Hunter, and Alex, whom she has been hired to protect.
Molly Morris (Miley Cyrus), a private investigator based in Dallas, takes photos of cheating men. During one of her investigations, F.B.I. Agent Armon Ranford (Jeremy Piven), offers her a job with the F.B.I., to watch over Alex Patrone (Lauren McKnight), the daughter of a Senator, who was involved in an organized crime case. Molly is reluctant at first, but ultimately decides to accept Ranford's offer. She goes undercover as a sorority student named Brooke Stonebridge and receives help from her father (Mike O'Malley). She meets Sasha Stolezinsky (Eloise Mumford), the head of the sorority and other members, including Becky (Kelly Osbourne), Cotton (Megan Park), Hunter (Morgan Calhoun), and Alex, whom she has been hired to protect. At first, she thinks that Sasha may be a suspect, but as it turns out, she only changed her identity from Suzy Walters so she could start a new life rather than continue to be an outcast. Molly also meets her love interest, Nicholas Dexter (Josh Bowman), another student at the college. Molly begins to suspect one of her professors, Professor Talloway (Matthew Settle), when she discovers that Alex secretly goes off to his home on a lake. She continuously reports back to Ranford, who at one point tells Molly that Nicholas Dexter, her love interest, is not his real name. She does not believe him, and soon figures out that Ranford is not who he says he is. One night, she follows Alex to Talloway's home, only to discover that her professor is actually a federal agent. She encounters a gunman, who she escapes from. She figures out that Ranford is actually behind the mask, who drives off with a kidnapped Alex and soon finds Talloway injured from a gunshot wound outside his home. When she returns to the sorority house, she encounters two federal agents working on the case. They are hesitant to believe her at first, but Morris convinces them to help solve the case with the help of her sorority sisters. They execute the plan, rescue Alex, and corner Ranford, who is arrested. Alex hands over a SD card, with the evidence in her father's case, to Molly who hands it over to the F.B.I.
In the film, Cyrus stars as Molly, a young woman employed by her father, a former police officer now working as a private investigator. In something of a "21 Jump Street" twist, she is recruited by the FBI to help investigate the mob. Without giving anything away, the job requires her to go undercover and pose as a college student, which exposes her to a whole world she never knew existed.
When the FBI hires her to go undercover at a college sorority, Molly Morris (Miley Cyrus) must transform herself from a tough, streetwise private investigator to a refined, sophisticated university girl to help protect the daughter of a one-time Mobster. With several suspects on her list, Molly unexpectedly discovers that not everyone is who they appear to be, including herself.
Last week we learned that for her new film "So Undercover," Miley Cyrus will take on the part of "a tough, street-smart private eye hired by the FBI to go undercover in a college sorority." And while that description is accurate -- and sort of awesome -- it also sells the role short.
"She's basically this chick who grows up as a super tomboy, and she's an FBI agent and gets thrown into a bunch of girls that she doesn't understand because she's been around her dad, who's been in the FBI his whole life," Cyrus told us in Madrid. "And basically, by having to go undercover and be someone that she's not, she kind of finds the person she is, because she realizes she doesn't have to carry the weight on her shoulder of what her dad was, and she can be her own person."

In the flick, pre-haircut Miley plays a private investigator who goes undercover as a sorority girl. In this scene, she almost blows her cover when she doesn't have quite the same hopes and dreams as the other sisters.
MR. KING: Mr. Secretary, as Arab countries learn to revitalize their economies, how will it undercut the appeal of extremist groups in certain areas of the Middle East?SECRETARY POWELL: I think it would have a major effect on extremist groups. What are they extreme about? They don't believe that their governments and their economies are doing enough for the people, and so they take extreme positions. But if the people in these countries believe in the future of those countries, if they saw an economy that was functioning, if they saw jobs available for so many youngsters who do not yet have the skills for those jobs and don't know that the jobs are available -- but if you correct that, if you start investing in education, if you start investing in civil society and you start investing in democracy, open economic systems, then you essentially pull the energy out of the extremist movement.MR. KING: To switch directions just a little bit, if I may. Regarding the leak of the identity of Ambassador Joe Wilson's wife as an undercover agent, what kind of damage was or could be caused by the disclosure of such information, and what is the purpose of laws providing such information?SECRETARY POWELL: I really don't know what the damage might be in this particular case. The laws require that whenever somebody whose cover has been blown, that it becomes known that the cover is blown, the Director of Central Intelligence is expected to notify the Justice Department, and then they determine where to take it from there.If they're undercover, you don't know they're undercover if they're well undercover, so the person who might have done this may not have known that she was undercover. Nevertheless, it's a serious matter. Not only do you put her at risk, or any undercover agent at risk, by letting it be known that they are an agent, but you also put the sources they have worked with over the years at considerable risk. So we take this very, very seriously, and I am sure that Director Tenet and Attorney General Ashcroft will be looking at this, as will the White House, as a very serious matter.MR. KING: Achieving peace in Iraq is going to be a -- I presume it's going to be a long-term process. How much longer do you anticipate American troops to be stationed in Iraq?SECRETARY POWELL: I can't say. We were very successful in defeating the Iraqi army and in removing Saddam Hussein and his evil regime. And let there be no doubt about it, that was an evil regime and the world is better off because he is no longer in charge in Iraq of 24 million Iraqis. 24 million people are now free to pursue their future. We've got to help them.So our military has to stay there and defeat the remnants of this horrible regime, defeat those who don't want to just attack Americans, they want to bring back the old form of government. We're not going to let that happen. It isn't going to happen.And so our troops, joined by troops from 31 other nations, are in country now to provide security. How long? Until we can build up the Iraqi military, a new military, Iraqi police forces, Iraqi institutions, Iraqi ministries, so that they can take over their country.Now, to take over their country once more, take it over from Ambassador Bremer and the coalition, we need a constitution, and, from that constitution, we need elections. So we are hopeful that once they start on the constitution writing process, they might be able to finish it in six months. We'll see. Then that constitution would have to be ratified, and then hold elections.So, certainly we'll be there, it seems clear to me, through the end of next year. But it's a good investment. It's a good investment of our military. It's a good investment of the money that we're asking the Congress for, $20 billion in reconstruction, reconstruction funds, because when this is over and the proud day arrives when we move out and give it all back to the Iraqi people, there will be a democratic nation resting on the rule of law and elections and a constitution, will no longer be a threat to its neighbors, and we'll never have to worry about it again as long as we keep that democracy going. And that begins with the creation of the right kinds of institutions, which is what we're doing now.MR. KING: That debate on funding for rebuilding of Iraq begins in Congress in the days to come. SECRETARY POWELL: Yes.MR. KING: I'm wondering how you assess not only the mood in Congress, but the mood of the American people who -- many of whom are questioning whether this is turning into another Vietnam and we're pouring money into it in hard economic times here at home.SECRETARY POWELL: Yeah, I know a lot about Vietnam. I served there for two years. This is not another Vietnam. We have got remnants of a defeated regime that have to be dealt with, some terrorists who are trying to come fish in troubled waters, and they will be dealt with. I think the response so far in Congress and with the American people has been pretty good. Questions are being asked: "Why are we doing this? Should some of it be alone?" And all of those questions will be dealt with. It's a big amount, and we would expect Congress to ask questions and the American people to know what we're doing with this money.But I think once we have provided those explanations, the American people will support it, and so will the Congress. MR. KING: All right, Mr. Secretary, thank you very much. It's been a pleasure.SECRETARY POWELL: Thank you very much. My pleasure. 041b061a72
