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…
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.
The film that never fails to reaffirm my love of cinema.

"Hey, if Drew's in it, I've seen it."
McG distills the mojo of Roy Lichtenstein’s balanced compositional eye, Brian De Palma’s showy artifice and pop filmmaking of Total Request Live into an aggressively stupid studio film that knows it’s stupid, but doesn’t care. In the absence of grand messages or themes, Charlie’s Angels sticks to the original TV show’s episodic structure, but cranks up style with absurdist glee. It’s weirdly freeing to watch giggling school girls having fun, and embracing the emptiness of it all, while various well-cast baddies attempt to destroy them. Producers big-budget existing property adaptations should look here for inspiration. No need for gritty seriousness, nor even rote faithfulness: only a consistent spirit of inventiveness.

I know this film did pretty badly (I believe Roger Ebert gave it half a star) BUT I genuinely loved this film when it came out - I was about 13 years old and it encouraged me to take kung fu classes! I was devastated to hear from my master that the girls did no real kung fu moves in the film (neither did their stunts) but it mattered not and I stuck with it for 2 years.
This film is surprisingly good, if you remember it's a comedy as well as an action film. Remember it's fun and you'll enjoy it! Maybe.
a fun, funny, campy, melodramatic, action-packed, male gaze-y, fauxminist #classic that i can literally watch any and every day of my life
Sam Rockwell got some smooth moves, yo.
I don't think I'd watched this in ten years. It's certainly still a very fun movie and I don't think it's trying to be anything that it isn't, so I can't really criticise any of the sillier moments.
Silly but fun. Some decent action scenes plus it's nice to have an action film with female leads.
Unsure of whether it wants to be a parody or faithful adaption, ends up being neither despite a few mildly funny moments.
Love Murray's Bosley and that absolutely killer soundtrack.
Just one of those films I watched repetitively when I was a lot younger - I wonder why...
Everybody has either a film star or character that they had a crush on during their formative years. So which…
