I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Get Some Action
Aspects of this take on the 1970s hit TV series are similar to the original show :Angels Dylan, Natalie and Alex still work for Charlie and interface with Bosley. They still flip their hair, stop traffic with a smile and kick butt. The differences are the unsubtle humor, the martial arts training and the high-tech premise: This time, they're hot on the trail of stolen software.
I fear Diaz's bouncy and swirling behind hypnotized me into giving this four stars.
That and Rockwell's unbelievable dancing skills.
And Bill Murray.
Ah, crap, I just love this film!
Corny, sexist, racist, and a weird delight.
Yeah, it's mostly a series of music videos tied loosely together with a fairly well worn plot, but that's not a big issue for me. In fact, I'm sort of impressed with a movie that goes to as much trouble as Charlie's Angels does for such relatively insignificant moments. It's a game of dress up (not just the angels themselves but the sets, the action, everything), and I find myself weirdly enamored with the film's dedication to reinventing its location and style essentially from moment to moment.
In particular, the fact that this film includes an opening credits that hints at a number of adventures from previous "episodes" just tickles me. Those shots…
This extremely tongue-in-cheek action comedy does not give a damn about its plot, and so why should we?
The fight scenes are blazin’, the bods are jigglin’, and the energy level is absolutely soarin’. At an extremely brisk 98 minutes, “Charlie’s Angels” boasts some snazzy performances by all involved, especially Luke Wilson (always immensely likable) and Crispin Glover (truly creepy).
My favorite angel? Well, who wouldn’t want to “fight crime” with the irresistible Drew Barrymore?
This movie gets a lot of hate and I get it but for me its a guilty pleasure. Its just a over the top fun movie.
Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu are good in their roles while Cameron Diaz as per usual annoys the hell out of me. Sam Rockwell is great as always. Tim Curry is one of the highlights of this movie, hes having a great time and it shows. I've always loved Curry epically as a villain. One of the biggest disappointments of the movie come from Bill Murray though who did something that he rarely does and completely phoned it in. The show is stolen by the performance given my Cripsin Glover, hes great in everything…
no offense but i used to spend every lunch time at school recreating every shot of this movie...
I love this film more than I have any right to. It's just filled with fun gags and style and music and never lets up. For example Lucy Liu has two slo-mo hair flips in the first 6 minutes. The casting is spot on. Like, these people are in the film: Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz, Bill Murray, Luke Wilson, Matt LeBlanc, Crispin Glover (who asked for all of his lines to be removed), Tim Curry, Sam Rockwell, Tom Green, Melissa McCarthy... I just want to spend more time in this universe. No guilt.
Amager Bio vol 3: Kvinder der sparker RØV!
eh.. hvad har jeg lige set? Filmen tromler igennem min hjerne i et konstant formel 1 gear, og hiver al logik ud af de meninger jeg prøver at skabe omkring de tre pigers gøremål.
God underholdning, vil jeg dog sige, men hold da op!
This has cult classic for being over-the-top written all over it.
This movie is so damn cartoonish. I never noticed as a kid (which is weird because I was obsessed with cartoons -- perhaps that was why). I just loved everything about it and I still do, its just that now I'm seeing that it is very cheesy, yet substantially cool. I still think it's miles better than Full Throttle.
But yes, very cartoonish. They get blown up, jump off cliffs, and helicopters and planes into oceans and they don't die, don't get hurt. Nothing. But, boy, do I love Charlie's Angels. Watching it again after all these years was very nostalgic to when I used to watch it everyday.
Miss my youth.
This film exemplifies the 2000 era, where female empowerment was becoming a thing, wire action stunts were the rage and Beyonce was still singing lead vocals in Destiny's Child. The script is quite strong, blending character with comedy and action, though the references to tech companies which would have made the film seem forthright in 2000 now seem very dated (there are bigger concerns now than just voice recognition software). The film exudes a sense of LA cool that seems to be lost in films now, a sheen of magic that preceded the era of gritty up-close action films and cop dramas that now popularize the city. The film keeps a constant tone of being sleek and dark, but with a small burning light of life in the onscreen relationships.
It's a shame about the sequel.
Such a dumb movie. But I still enjoyed re watching it after all these years. Movie has an ungodly blend of nostalgia and then early 2000 style. Seriously this movie is the year 2000. Sam Rockwell seems like such a cool guy in everything he's in.
Has a 67% on rotten tomatoes. Look it up!
Gerade wegen dem sympathischen Gespannt aus Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, Drew Barrymore kann mit schon durchaus Spaß an dem Film haben. Zwar gibt sich McG nicht unbedingt Mühe bei der eigentlichen recht dünnen Geschichte, aber alleine dass er Sam Rockwell als Gegenspieler zu bieten hat, rechne ich dem Film ein wenig an.
