Overview

They're beautiful, they're brilliant, and they can kick your butt -- the most glamorous private eyes in the world are back in action in this big-screen adaptation of the popular '70s television series. Natalie (Cameron Diaz) is the smart but silly one, Dylan (Drew Barrymore) is the tough but fun-loving one, and Alex (Lucy Liu) is the classy but hard-as-nails one, and they work for a man named Charlie (voice of John Forsythe), who never meets his employees face to face. Along with their helper Bosley (Bill Murray), the Angels are sent into action when electronics genius Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell) is kidnapped, with the nefarious Roger Corwin (Tim Curry) as the prime suspect. But they soon learn even bigger danger is afoot -- the kidnappers have gotten their hands on Knox's latest invention, a system that can monitor voice communication from anywhere in the world, virtually ending the notion of private conversation. Charlie's Angels also stars Crispin Glover, Luke Wilson, Kelly Lynch, and Tom Green.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Adapted from one of the Swingin’ '70s’ most popular TV series, Charlie’s Angels is a funny, fast-paced romp brimming with feminine pulchritude and bursting with explosive action. Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu portray the sexy sleuths whose unseen employer (voiced, as he was in the TV show, by John Forsythe) assigns them to protect software guru Sam Rockwell from mysterious assailants. The high-stakes game takes an unexpected turn when the bodacious bodyguards discover that Charlie himself is the ultimate prize. Although Diaz, Barrymore, and Liu are easily capable of carrying the film on their shapely shoulders, a terrific supporting cast just adds to the fun. Bill Murray puts his signature stamp on the role of John Bosley (David Doyle in the TV original), the Angels' fellow operative. Tim Curry, Crispin Glover, Kelly Lynch, Luke Wilson, Matt LeBlanc, and Barrymore’s real-life boyfriend, Tom Green, also make the most of their screen time. Music-video director McG (a.k.a. Joseph McGinty Nichol) makes a flashy feature-film debut, combining Hong Kong-style fight choreography and Matrix-like special effects with loose, improvisational humor and frequent pop culture references. As a result, his high-flying Angels makes heavenly entertainment. McG explains his filmmaking technique in a commentary for the DVD, which also includes music videos from Destiny’s Child and Apollo Four Forty, the theatrical trailer, and featurettes documenting the film’s production.
All Movie Guide - Jessica Frost
Charlie's Angels mixes nostalgic 1970s elements with action à la The Matrix and unrealistic spy plots à la James Bond, all set within the framework of the popular 1970s TV show of the same name. As three kick-butt private investigators, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and Cameron Diaz prove to be as beautiful and unlikely as their TV counterparts. The script selectively mixes elements from numerous sources and time periods, with the main criteria being unabashed amusement. Though they're fighting crime in a new age -- the plot revolves around the stolen software of a Bill Gates-esque character -- the issues in the Angels' personal lives remain the same; the theme of "a good man is hard to find" weaves itself throughout the film and forms the basis for the women's vulnerability. But in their work life the trio is all confidence -- whether infiltrating a high-security computer vault, high-kicking a would-be assailant (producer Barrymore decided the Angels would not wield guns), or speeding after the bad guy in a race car, their confidence and skill is unshakable. Sure, they emerge from harried combat with the Thin Man (played with creepy brilliance by Crispin Glover) without even smearing their lipstick, but that's a part of the make-believe fun. There is an episodic, comic-book style to this action film -- no doubt helped along by the music video background of director McG -- and the result is as satisfying and equally agreeable as it is in Austin Powers. It also shares with Powers a spunky blending of modern-day themes with cheesy elements from the '70s. In Charlie's Angels this fusion is exciting, entertaining, and, judging by its box-office success, what people want.

This movie was stale, predictable, badly acted and just plain stupid. I don't think any of the actors had their heart in their performance, and scenes were not ''in sinc'' so there was not a smooth flow to the ''action'' if you can call it that. I am embarrassed to mention that I saw it in the first place!

This movie was a good movie not to say that it was my favorite, but it still was enjoyable. Could have had alot less cheesy action scenes.

This movie is exciting funny and has a lot of action. The girls are great actresses, and made the movie more exciting. Get this, since one of the actresses hates guns, all the fighting is karate and stuff like that. The story has a good plot, and I can't wait for the second one!
