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…
"Charlie's Angels," based on the 1970s television program, attempts to blend comedy, action, and style into a seamlessly entertaining spectacle. While that attempt does not fully bear fruit, McG's film is watchable and goofily fun. The cast is game, the action beats are suitable, and, though the whole thing never finds a graceful balance, the film manages to mildly engage.
Built around a team of three secret agents, "Charlie's Angels" throws the trio in harm's way in a plot that finds them hunting down pilfered software. The story is a capable foundation for the cast to crack wise and kick tail, though it is nothing more than that.
Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu star as the angels of…
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 was on TV and I was just gonna stick around to see Tom Green's portrayal of the greatest character in film "The Chad". Turns out this is the perfect late night time waster. The cast is unreal, there's lots of scantily clad women, and it's occasionally really funny. Reeks of early 2000's trash. It's not good but I'm never mad at it.
The Chad is Great.
A movie that you know will be absolute crap before you even watch it. I was only in it for the babes, and boy were they hot in this. Of course, it was really their only asset. The terrible script did nothing for them. One star for Lucy Liu and those cheesey but undoubtedly kick-ass action sequences.

(Ticket Tally reviews are of films I have the original movie ticket stub for. It is a goal one day to log them all on Letterboxd, and then paste them all on a nice piece of canvas for my viewing pleasure).
I rewatched this as many a time as a young teen at my cousins house where we had regular family gatherings - they had a pretty cool DVD collection for my youthful age, yet my parents only let me watch a few films from said collection and this was one.
Before that though I was allowed to go see it in the cinema. I didn't grow up with the series, didn't…
Has some stylistic flourishes cribbed from De Palma, Wachowskis and some of the worst 90s music videos, but when paired with constant colorful, unexpected scenarios they come up with, it makes for one of the best paced movies I've ever seen: never boring. It's also painfully dated, although sometimes in it's favor: save for some greenscreen, action is completely practical (McG overcut it though) wirework and fireworks. Even if it's female empowerment thing is well-intentioned, it's confused: sure, the girls kick ass and emerge triumphant, but no lines in here pass the Bechdel test. Dunno, but it was kinda fun.

Not the best, not the worst, not enough Tim Curry.
Stupid with some slightly funny stuff.
I didn't think I needed a Crispin Glover x Lucy Liu fight scene until now.
