Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Our favorite crime-fighting cuties are back for another feature-film go-round, and fans of the first film will not be disappointed: The ladies are just as lovely and lethal as ever. Full Throttle reintroduces us to Natalie (Cameron Diaz), Dylan (Drew Barrymore), and Alex (Lucy Liu), who remain in the employ of the enigmatic Charlie Townsend (John Forsythe, as always, voice alone) -- this time, investigating the theft of a witness-relocation database much sought after by rival mobsters. Demi Moore, returning to the screen after a three-year break, portrays a former Angel who has gone over to the dark side. Bernie Mac rather improbably but satisfactorily replaces Bill Murray as Bosley; Justin Theroux is a particularly nasty heavy; and returning cast members Matt LeBlanc, Luke Wilson, and Crispin Glover (the silver screen's undisputed king of creepy) make the most of their limited screen time. Once again, director "McG" is at the megaphone, fashioning stylish if physically impossible action sequences and loading each sequence with pop-culture references. The story is almost nonexistent, with scenes included seemingly to provide song cues for the succession of pop oldies that comprise the soundtrack. But let's face it, nobody watches a Charlie's Angels movie for the plot. The requisite pulchritude is more than amply supplied, and McG sustains a rapid pace that makes it easy to overlook the narrative's absurdities. Full Throttle, like its predecessor, provides two hours of mindless fun that calls for a healthy suspension of disbelief and buckets of hot, buttery popcorn.
All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
This is fluffy commercialism at its core, easily discounted as yet another way to make loads of cash from an unattainable feminine ideal. That being said, the Charlie's Angels film franchise turns this ideal into a superhero movie, and the result is more exciting and thrilling than many of its comic book-based contemporaries. With the self-mocking humor, fantasy fighting sequences, dance club pulse, and standard crime-fighting plot, it feels a lot like watching The Powerpuff Girls, only with Cosmo-style sex appeal. With so much flesh on display, the überwomen are granted an even higher propensity for makeup, costumes, and spiked high heel boots. The degree of exaggeration is such that it all becomes a kind of grotesque fashion show, albeit with the trappings of a regular macho action movie. This time around, the superheroes even get supervillains; in keeping with the zero tolerance rule for body fat, Demi Moore is quite repulsive as the ex-Angel vigilante, while Justin Theroux makes a stylishly psychotic ex-boyfriend in a rip-off of Robert De Niro in Cape Fear. Director McG doesn't hide his music video skills while pumping up the soundtrack at every opportunity for a showy, explosion-filled trifle that at least has the decency to know it's a trifle, as parodied by Matthew LeBlanc's action movie premiere of "Maximum Extreme II." Upping her salary to a Julia Roberts level, the well-worn comic persona of Cameron Diaz manages a few good moments, despite her horribly thin and unrealistic body. Other than the loathsome subplot involving John Cleese and the unfortunate addition of Bernie Mac, this sequel improves upon its predecessor as an outlet for girlishly giddy delusions of grandeur.
