Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
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 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.
Okay, so the action sequences aren't the greatest, the wirework stunts are sometimes particularly poor, and the supporting cast is quite laughable, but that doesn't matter - I had fun. This is cheesy as hell, but I really enjoyed the music, found the daft humour to induce some groans and of course, who doesn't want to watch Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Lui in an array of tight clothing?
A decent popcorn flick. Nothing more, nothing less.
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…
Movie I kinda like. A lot.
You know how you love a movie when you're young, and then you watch it when you're older only to discover that it actually sucks? Well, this is not one of those movies for me. It's still a blast! Sure, it's about as dumb as an action film can be. But the three leads are great, Bill Murray's hilarious and Sam Rockwell (this movie introduced me to him, by the way) dances up a storm! You don't often find a high-octane, balls to the wall action film headlined by women. I still enjoy Charlie's Angels, and I doubt it'll ever change. I don't plan on revisiting the sequel, though. Life's too short.
arguably one of the greatest films ever made
the best film soundtrack of all time
Talk about a franchise that needs rebooting (which I don't like, but since it seems very on trend lately). Which is too bad because I like that cast.
But this has got way too many unnecessary cleavage and butt close-ups to be considered empowering for women.
don't you love watching movies you saw a lot as a kid for the first time as an adult?
silly in a completely ridiculous but oddly lovable way.
wrestled with the verrrry prevalent sexuality - should we shame it for being exploitative? i actually lean towards praising it for having strong, action hero women who seem to fully embrace their sexuality for both pleasure and as a weapon. kind of dope, especially for 2000.
who would've thought that in 2016 the chubby secretary lady in that one dominatrix scene with like two lines (aka MELISSA MCCARTHY) would be a bigger box office draw than all three main actresses combined??
This should not get this high a rating from me, but dammit I love the supporting cast so much.
this was hella bad in a variety of ways but drew barrymore is cute in drag
You probably know what you'd be getting into with this one.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
