There probably is, but how about posting a sample of the ugly code
together with what you'd like it to become?  Then Someone(TM) could
advise you how to set up various options in C Mode to reformat the
code to your liking.  Also, how many lines are in the code you want to
reformat?

In general, you will probably need to use "C-M-\" followed by "M-q".
