Everybody has either a film star or character that they had a crush on during their formative years. So which…
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.
Every scene is about 4seconds long and contains a million cuts!
The Chad was great!
Also the soundtrack is crazy... There are so many songs!!
Ich habe keine 10 Minuten ausgehalten, dann konnte ich den Film nicht mehr ertragen. Selbst Bill Murray war schlecht. BILL MURRAY! Allein dafür gehört der Drehbuchautor bestraft: Du sollst und Bill Murray nicht schlecht machen!
Verschwendete Lebenszeit, mehr gibt es zu dem Film nicht zu sagen.
Any movie with Tim Curry, Sam Rockwell, and Bill Murray is worth watching at least once.
Also, Drew Barrymore is insanely hot in this.
this was a movie
It's fun enough but lacking a lot of substance.
So I just rewatched this yesterday and as one of my favourite childhood movies I thought I would be disappointed watching it again years later. I wasn't. It's an extreme amount of fun and I love it just as much as I did as a kid. The music, action, actors and just everything is perfect to me and you know what- it's not trying to be a cinematic masterpiece. It's trying to be a funny, action movie boasting gorgeous women being gorgeous and kicking ass and it's damn excellant at achieving that goal. I still love this movie and everything about it- it just gets me so pumped!
