  • Good Morning Angels-Good Morning Charlie
    When this came out I couldn't stop watching it and seven years later I still watch it.

    This high action drama is full of twists and turns and is a real visual/audio pleaser. There is a quality of uniqueness in every scene. And ever present in each scene are great songs from the 70's, 80', and 90's. This helps to build up what is taking place for each scene.

    Some of the fighting moves are almost laughable but you find yourself rooting for these angels and wanting them to kick butt. It is all around entertaining and a small quantity of corny/geeky parts but this makes the movie all the more real and lovable. If you want fun and excitment, this is for you. This movie may be a lot of things, but BORING is not one of them. I recommend this and its one of personal favs....more info
  • good popcorn movie
    Charlie's Angels had great sound and I didn't notice any pixilation. The only real downside, and it kept me from giving a higher rating, is that it lacked a scene selection. This has to be a must for any PSP movie...more info
  • Good Movie
    Having been a Charlie's Angels fan from years ago, I do miss seeing Farrah from then, but, Drew, Lucy and Cameron are a very good update from the original. They are awesome in both features. You need to see it if you like the original Charlie's Angels tv show....more info
  • An Hour and a Half of Fun
    I really loved this film simply because of the fact that they don't even take themselves too seriously. Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Lui were all perfect selections in playing the most current Angels. Each of them does a great job at making their characters real people, and someone that you actually enjoy. The fight scenes are incredible, and the story is a lot of fun. If you are looking for a movie that had the potential to win an Oscar, this isn't for you, but if you just want and hour and a half of fun, buy this DVD....more info
  • Great adaption of a classic tv show
    Charlie's Angels is one of the few movies next to the MI series that is a good adaption of the tv show on which it is based. All of the angels are perfectly cast and the action sequences directed by MCG are tight. Bill Murray is very funny as Bosely and it's a shame he wasn't be in the sequel. All in all good fun. ...more info
  • Take it For What It Is!
    This movie, in my opinion was not a let down.

    Iyve heard several comments on the film like yThey made the angels stupidy, yIt wasnyt serious enoughy, and yIt did not bring justice to the original T.V. Seriesy.
    Which may be so,
    but maybe itys because I wasnyt a fan of the of the y70s hit or maybe itys because I wasnyt expecting an Oscar winning drama! But whatever the reason may be I enjoyed this film!

    Now the sequel yCharlieys Angelys 2:Full Throttley looks like they just want to make even MORE money off of the ever popular title.
    I may still go see it when it opens in June mainly because I was a fan of the first one but Iym walking into the theatre with my large soda and buttered popcorn expecting to be disappointed.
    The very fact that Bill Murray is not returning as Bosley should point this film toward trash can!

    But, back to the first movie! You can say what you want to about this film but the fact is that if you take it for what it was it isnyt a bad movie. And this film was simply a girl powered comedy with unrealistic (But entertaining) action sequences....more info

  • Pure Fun!!!
    With all the rumored problems on set, including the much talked about Lucy Lui-Billy Murray fued and an escalating budget, I didn't know what to expect from this update of the classic 70's TV show. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and of course, Lui are the perfect angels and they can definitely kick...!!! An unexpectedly entertaining blend of comedy and action, Charlie's Angels definitely doesn't fit the typical mold of a remake that never should have been made.

    Ultra-slick directing. Fun cameos. Cool dance sequences. Awesome stunts. It takes girl power, tosses in some Jimmy Bond, a little Mission Impossible spy mumbo-jumbo, three hot babes kickin' Matrix-type arse, a rockin' soundtrack, cool cars, a cold-cocking start, some fun credit outtakes, inside jokes left and right, and makes it all feel sooooo good. And the girls honestly seem to be having a great time here. Lucy Liu, rock solid as the most well-rounded angel of them all, smart as a whip, sexy as a vamp and tough as nails. Diaz, cute as a button, reminding everyone why we all fell in love with her in THE MASK, and Drew Barrymore, one girl who should be doubly commended for taking part in the production side of this fluffy gem as well.

    If you expect to take this movie seriously, stop right now and don't bother seeing it. This film is made for people who are looking for a punch-across-the-face kinda time, mixed in with a quick Tequila pick-me-up and a nice, thick, gooey wad o' cheese. This is a high-energy, action packed thrill ride. These angels deliver!!!!...more info

  • Very entertaining, weakened by corrupt plot
    Charlie's Angels successfully updates the 1970s TV show while remaining faithful to the show's themes of female empowerment, sex-appeal, action, and superficial plot.

    The music is hip (for the year 2000); the pacing and camerawork are performed much like a high-energy music video by director McG. And -- much like the TV show -- the talented cast compensates for a contrived script.

    The special features include commentary by director McG, who provides a solid rationale for the audience-pleasing tactics that he employed to complete each scene, and he recalls the mild objections of cast members to many of the script's stupidest moments.

    A decade later, the movie still feels current and entertaining, and I enjoy watching it.

    That being said, the plot isn't just ludicrous but downright corrupt, if a viewer thinks seriously about what is happening:

    The angels become mercenary dupes who, without any due diligence, help an evil Bill Gates-type character (Sam Rockwell) try to kill his Steve Jobs-type rival (Tim Curry) and steal Jobs' technology.

    Halfway through the movie, the angels realize (duh!) that they've been recklessly helping the wrong side. But instead of facing justice for their role as accomplices, the angels become vigilantes and try to even the score with the Bill Gates character.

    Reckless attempts to kill two software industry leaders are transformed through hip music and funny, sexy actresses into a heroism.

    Acchhem.

    Make no mistake, the movie is a blast to watch and hear, but just maybe we should think just a little about the message that it conveys, especially to teen-agers?...more info
  • A HEAVENLY SPOOF...
    This is a funny, well executed spoof of the popular nineteen seventies series of the same name. At times, it is positively hilarious. Cameron Diaz showcases her comedic talents and is a standout. With that luminescent smile and perfect comedic timing, she is reminiscent of a young Goldie Hawn. The ever lovely and voluptuous bad girl, Drew Barrymore, is also very funny, as is the petite Lucy Liu. The droll Bill Murray as Bosley is likewise perfect, and with the addition of John Forsythe, who played the original, mysterious Charlie in the series, reprising his original voice over role, the casting is flawless.

    While the plot is, as it is with all spoofs, silly, it is, nonetheless, action packed and highly entertaining. Our trio of crime fighting beauties are a sight for sore eyes. The tongue in cheek action scenes, as well as the sheer campiness of the film, keep the viewer engaged. For sheer enjoyment, watch this fast-paced film. You will not be disappointed. ...more info

  • Charlie's Angels Rock
    Charlie's Angels (Superbit Deluxe) is finally here with the release of the sequel coming in less than a month. Included in this DVD are two discs; one with the movie and one with special features. The only differences between this version of the DVD and the original version of the DVD is the fact that it includes a free ticket to go see the sequel (so I'm told) and it includes a behind the scenes look and trailers of the sequel as well. The audio commentary from the original version is missing, but I hear the quality sound of this movie more than makes up for it.

    Charlie's Angels is an incredible movie. If you want to watch a movie that's fun, sexy and has a ton of special effects, then this is the film for you. The movie was a giant hit at the box office and proved to nay sayers once and for all that their is an audience who enjoy watching women be action stars and having fun while they do it. No one does it better than Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu who play secret agents Dylan, Natalie and Alex. With their super cool accessories and high tech gadgets, the angels fly high on their missions, prepared to be the ultimate angels of destruction. Their use of martial arts and skillful technique more than proves that you don't need guns to be a badass.

    The story is pretty simple. There's a mad man out to kill Charlie and bring the angels down along with Bosley (played by Bill Murray). With the help of a locator device rigged in a satelite to tap into people's phones, it's up to our three heroines to save the day and rescue their boss, a man they see as a father figure. Charlie's Angels is so great because it combines this drama with alot of silly comedy and a ton of action. The actresses bring their characters to life and give the viewers a sense that they truely get along. The bond the girls share is obvious and it makes the movie that much more charming.

    Natalie (Diaz) is a sweet, ditzy, fun loving girl with a thing for dancing in her underwear and flirting with everyone from the UPS guy to a bartender named Pete (played by Luke Wilson). She loves Soul Train, Jeopardy and is a terrible driver.

    Dylan (Barrymore) is a no holds barred rebel with an attitude as fiery as her red hair. She's the least sensible of the trio and always gets herself into trouble, but has the right moves to get herself out. Her boyfriend, Chad (played by Tom Green), is a goofball who lives on a boat.

    Alex (Liu) is the brain of the operation. With her her dominatrix style martial arts and her skills to defuse bombs, she's the angel most likely to not need the other angels. Her boyfriend, Jason (played by Matt Leblanc), is a less than bright actor.

    Alot of people compared this movie's action sequences to that of The Matrix, but I think this film takes it up a notch or two. On their own the angels are deadly and ready to defend themselves, but when they're together they're unstoppable.

    I really loved this movie. The action and special effects are breath taking. The girls are genuinely funny and easy on the eyes. The plot is light and doesn't take itself too seriously and often pokes fun at itself and all the "Charlie's Angels" cliches. It also stars Sam Rockwell, Vivian Lynch and Crispin Glover who turn in three fine performances as evil villians.

    If you haven't seen this movie, see it. If you don't own it, buy this Superbit Deluxe Edition and enjoy it on the finest format available. Charlie's Angels is a great movie for guys and girls who like to laugh, see a specticle and watch a movie where the girls kick butt....more info

  • three and a half stars
    Since dts doesn't play on all dvd players, and this disc automatically starts as dts, I have to remember to change it, which isn't convenient. I think that it is pathetic, and shouldn't be like this. But otherwise, the features are good, and so was the price, but I honestly think that the second one was better. B+...more info
  • Beautiful in soooo many ways.
    The set design, the girls, the fight choreography...beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

    Ok...the story is a a bit ropey...but hey, Cameron D dances around in her underwear...I'll say that again; Cameron D dances around in her underwear!!!...and it has Drew Beautiful Barrymore...YUM!!!

    The extras on the DVD are 10/10 what all extras should aspire to.

    Choreography? It laughs in the face of the matrix and shows it up for the hollow turd it is.

    Just watch the movie and shut the F**K up....more info
  • Great movie if you're a misandrist
    Lets see...in about the first five minutes:

    1. A male flight attendant shows himself to be a total jerk
    2. A male terrorist is easily overpowered by a woman wearing a mask
    3. A male drill seargeant is knocked out cold with a single punch by a woman
    4. A man is told by a woman that he's not fit for sex, and then promptly commits suicide

    Notice a pattern here?

    This movie is so misandrist* it makes Thelma and Louise look positively pro-male.

    "So what? It's just a movie," you say? Well consider a movie that consistently put down and ridiculed women. Would that be okay? How about a movie that put down black people, unrelentingly portraying them as brutes, weaklings and mental deficients. Would that be okay? After all, it's "just entertainment."

    Any guy who thinks this is a swell movie is too stupid to realize he's being insulted.

    *Misandrist (one who hates persons of the male sex, the opposite of a misogynist)...more info
  • Take it For What It Is!
    This movie, in my opinion was not a let down.

    I've heard several comments on the film like "They made the angels stupid", "It wasn't serious enough", and "It did not bring justice to the original T.V. Series".
    Which may be so,
    but maybe it's because I wasn't a fan of the of the '70s hit or maybe it's because I wasn't expecting an Oscar winning drama! But whatever the reason may be I enjoyed this film!

    Now the sequel `Charlie's Angel's 2:Full Throttle' looks like they just want to make even MORE money off of the ever popular title.
    I may still go see it when it opens in June mainly because I was a fan of the first one but I'm walking into the theatre with my large soda and buttered popcorn expecting to be disappointed.
    The very fact that Bill Murray is not returning as Bosley should point this film toward trash can!

    But, back to the first movie! You can say what you want to about this film but the fact is that if you take it for what it was it isn't a bad movie. And this film was simply a girl powered comedy with unrealistic (But entertaining) action sequences....more info

  • Watch it to goof on it
    This movie is possibly the cheesiest movie of all time. The movie steals from Mission Impossible and the Matrix while adding glamour shots that are so hokey you get a little sick to your stomach.

    But if you look at this movie in its proper context: A ton of money and time and effort was spent on a movie that tries to be Dumb, then maybe you can enjoy it.

    It's too silly, ridiculous, and cheesy to take seriously. It's impossible to care about, but fun to watch. You'll probably be making fun of the movie throughout. It bugs me to see so much time and effort be put forth for something so absolutely stupid, but some people think stupid is great.

    Watch it on free TV....more info

  • Script was Written by 13-year old girls
    Look I don't understand what it is about charlies angels. I've seen the original episodes and it's just as cheesy as anything else in that era. I can accept strong women beating up bad guys, that's fine. In fact one of my favorite actresses is Michelle Yeoh. What I can't accept is how a woman who has no Skill,muscle, or physical strength can fly around kicking, and punch guys in a way I've only seen in the Matrix! Without wires there wouldn't be any fighting....The Plot and acting were awful....BR> So bottom line, Guys will like the movie because of Cameron Diaz(She's not that hot, but that's another article), And Women will like it if they need some Female action stars and don't care about Plot. I still think it [was bad]. But hey that's just me, I don't like to watch [bad movies]....more info
  • It did what it was meant to do
    People have complained about things like the plot and all of those aspects. The reason that they've made those sort of comments is because they're comparing it with Academy Award type films when this was NOT meant to even be nominated for an Oscar. They were making this movie only to entertain. The director himself even pointed out that this film is not Othello, and that it's not meant to be anything like that.

    There was one time when a friend and I watched it at least three times within twenty-four hours. It has a lot of action-packed sequences, amusing moments, and a pretty good soundtrack. The action sequences are very exciting. The amusing moments aren't meant to make you crack up. After all these are Charlie's Angels, not the Marx Brothers. The pretty good soundtrack is more of a matter of taste. However, it includes a wide amount of music, ranging from the so-called nu metal of Korn, the classic rock of Heart, the R&B style of that time with Destiny's Child, the disco of Tavares, and a lot more. Oh yeah, I forgot about the techno version of the Charlie's Angels theme song.

    The angels are Drew Barrymore as Dylan, the rebellious one, Cameron Diaz as Natalie, the soft-hearted and free-spirited one, Lucy Liu as Alex, the formally educated one. The characters come from very different backgrounds from each other, as do the three actresses. Drew Barrymore is descended from a family of award winning actors and actresses, including Ethel Barrymore and John Barrymore. Lucy Liu's parents were both Chinese immigrants, and she never spoke any English until the age of five. Cameron Diaz got her start as a model, and her first acting role was a major role, after having had no acting experience at all.

    Bill Murray also adds some humor into the movie. His role is different from what he did in films like What About Bob? (a film where Murray stars as a mental patient who stalks his therapist, when the therapist's family thinks he's great) or Groundhog Day (a film where Bill Murray stars as a TV host repeating the worst day of his life again and again). The difference between the two films I just mentioned and Charlie's Angels is that Bill Murray isn't the star, but he does a great job as a supporting character.

    All in all, this movie is perfect for what it is, a fun action movie, but if you want the type of film that will win an Academy Award, stay away from this film....more info

    nooooooooo! They could have done Macbeth, Hamlet, or Waiting for Godot, but no, its something so bad they ahd to give Drew Barrymore a speaking role. Noooooo!...more info

  • Silly Sexy Fun
    I did not expect much when i put this DVD in the player and found myself surprised. No, this was not a great film by any means, but it was it silly, sexy fun. If you don't take it serious you are in for an ok 90 minutes.

    Once again, Cameron Diaz shows why she is one of the hottest females in film. Her charecter is silly and comes off as a "dumb blonde", but she is oh so easy on the eyes....more info
  • Sam Rockwell is one of my favorite actors.
    He did a great job in this film. You never would have guessed he was actually the bad guy in the end....more info
  • very funny
    Cameron Diaz is simply fantastic in her role, she's so convincing and extremely convincing physically in her stunts! Drew Barrymore looks quite stupid.
    the story is very interessing, not boring.

  • Charlie's Angels (2000)
    In 1976, the hit television show, CHARLIE'S ANGELS had debuted. On that show, the angels were: JILL MONROE (played by Farrah Fawcett), KELLY GARRETT (played by Jaclyn Smith), & SABRINA DUNCAN (played by Kate Jackson). Their sidekick was JOHN BOSELY (played by David Doyle). The voice of Charlie was John Forsythe. A year later, Jill Monroe was replaced by her sister, KRIS MONROE (played by Cheryl Ladd). Later, Kelly Garrett was replaced by JULIE ROGERS (played by Tanya Roberts), and Sabrina Duncan was replaced by TIFFANY WELLES (played by Shelley Hack).

    In the year 2000, director McG, had brought us the film, CHARLIE'S ANGELS, with three of today's gorgeous actresses to portray Charlie's third batch of angels. CHARLIE (again played by John Forsythe) has recruited three new angels. The angels are: NATALIE COOK (played by Cameron Diaz), DYLAN SAUNDERS (played by Drew Barrymore), and ALEX MUNDAY (played by Lucy Liu). These angels, are the third batch, after Jill, Kelly, Sabrina, Kris, Julie, & Tiffany. JOHN BOSELY (played by Bill Murray) is still their loveable sidekick.

    The angels' next assignment is to find a young man named ERIC KNOX (played by Sam Rockwell). His assistant, VIVIAN WOOD (played by Kelly Lynch) is the one who made the discovery of his kidnapping. She believes ROGER CORWIN (played by Tim Curry), head of CORWIN COMPUTER COMPANIES is responsible. The angels and Bosely head over to Corwin's big party bash to rescue Knox and to capture his kidnapper, who is only known as CREEPY THIN MAN (played by Crispin Glover). There, Dylan and Alex pose as Bosely's dates, where Natalie poses as a waitress, where she meets PETE KOMISKY (played by Luke Wilson). They find Thin Man and chase him down an alley, fight him, but he runs off, where the angels find Eric Knox and rescue him.

    Knox was kidnapped so Corwin could get his hands on Knox's computer software that has something to do with cell phones. The angels have to get into the Corwin building and retrieve it, but they need the authorization codes to get in. Two operators have this. The first uses his eye pupil for the identification, where the second uses his fingerprints. Dylan makes a copy of the second employee's handprints, where Natalie makes a lense of the first employee's eye. They get in successfully and retrieve the software.

    While Natalie is on a date with Pete, where the two find themselves going steady, Alex is with her boyfriend, JASON GIBBONS (played by Matt LeBlanc, aka JOEY TRIBBIANI from Friends). Well, Jason isn't with Alex. Jason is on the set of his first movie, MAXIMUM EXTREME. Alex lives with Jason, where she is cooking him something. But while she is doing that, the trailer is shot up, leaving Alex unharmed. Jason arrives, but doesn't get much of a chance to talk to Alex, since she has to run to Natalie.

    Natalie is in the bathroom at a club, where she is nearly killed by a thug. The thug works for...Vivian Wood. Vivian had planned this whole thing for some unknown reason. Dylan is with Knox, where the two have just slept together, but Dylan gets a surprise when she finds Knox with Vivian and the Thin Man. The three are working together. Knox believes that his father's death was planned as a murder and he believes that Charlie had done so, which is why he used Corwin as the culprit. The computer software was used to locate Charlie, so Knox can kill him.

    The next day, the angels head out to Knox's hideout, where Natalie battles Vivian, where Alex battles, the Thin Man. Dylan helps her friends escape, as Vivian and the Thin Man are blown up with their hide out. Knox is on a jet, loaded with missles, where he is headed towards Charlie's beach house. He fires the missile, but the angels are on the sides of the jet, where they jammed the missiles. Dylan enters the jet, beats the sh*t out of Knox and jumps off with her friends by her sides. They did not jam the missiles, the cut his breaks, and reversed the missiles, where missile returns to Knox and blows him up.

    The angles have done it again. Charlie has a way of picking gorgeous employees, who have the qualifications of kicking a** and saving the day. This lineup of Angels was great. The girls looked great and they kicked a**....more info

  • Intentionally one of the most absurd films ever, but fun
    This is one of those films, like THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8th DIMENSION, that is over-the-top absurd. Like Buckaroo Banzai, who was simultaneously a rock star, surgeon, scientist, and super adventurer, the three Angels in this film are all improbably talented. By the end, they all started reminding me of Barbie dolls, and all about as convincing as a Barbie doll in each incarnation. We get Kung Fun Barbie Doll followed by Computer Nerd Barbie Doll to be followed by Race Car Driver Barbie Doll. At no point are any of the girls the tiniest bit convincing in their rolls. In this regard, the film is as ridiculous as the original TV show, which despite being a hit was, in my mind, one of the worst shows ever. The difference between the two shows, and what makes this film fun instead of awful, is the fact that the movie clearly intends all of this tongue in cheek, as a long, silly joke.

    The problem with the movie is that while a self-parody is always fun, it isn't always a great self-parody. Too many scenes are intended as a joke at the girls' expense, but it isn't developed with any wit or charm or skill. That doesn't mean the film isn't slick; it is. But as a whole the film doesn't live up to its own expectations. There just isn't much depth or purpose, except to show three impossibly talented and beautiful women you simply can't accept as being that talented (though the beautiful part is easy).

    The girls are well cast. I always find Drew Barrymore to be adorable. Cameron Diaz is fun, and is extremely convincing physically in her stunts. She is not, however, at all convincing as a guy-shy female. Lucy Liu provides good visual and ethnic contrast to the other two, but I don't like the bitchiness of her character, and while I completely applaud using an Asian actress in a major role, I just find her an almost completely unlikable actress, and her semi-dominatrix aura gets very, very old very, very quickly. Undoubtedly this is because I have read too much about her in media gossip rags. I have read that Thandie Newton originally was tagged for the role, and I wish that had happened.

    In the end, the film just doesn't quite gel, but because it doesn't take itself too seriously, it manages to be fun anyway. This is one of those films that's great to watch on a Saturday night with a bunch of friends, when you can simultaneously enjoy and laugh at what's happening. Laughing is OK; the makers of the film expect you to....more info

  • One word description: FUN!
    I watched this movie on TV (they edited out why Dylan ended up in a towel later), not on DVD, so I can't comment on the DVD version (yet). I watched this with Mom (she watched the TV show before) and my brother and sister and they all liked it. My dad, after he saw the first sequence involving a mask, said, "Well I've had enough of that" and went to bed. My little brother calls it "two hours of ...kickin' action" and he's exactly right. It seems like half the movie is in slow motion to show how cool a scene is (something Tomb Raider needed). It is NOT thought-provoking entertainment, so if you like that, forget about it. The stars weren't extremely too immodestly dressed(this matters to me & Mom). Mom didn't seem disappointed about the adaptation from the series, either.

    Age recommendation: 9 & up

    The basic gist: A pretty good and fairly dumb (not a bad thing) movie that was fun (for me, at least) about 3 pretty women kicking [rear-end]. My sister and I want to get it and can hardly wait for the sequel.

    My recommendation: at least a rent if you're interested in anything I said up there...more info

  • The Dumbing Down of Girls Gone Wild.
    This film if anything else comes off as pretentious and overdone. You end up not caring if any of the "angels" live or die. "Charlie's Angels" is yet another in a long list of action films where the viewer actually ends up rooting for the bad guys. With as much empahsis as they put on style in this film, it may as well been a music video. On a superficial level, this film works great, but the cutesey girls kick butt stuff was overempasisized and was not enough to carry the weight of this horrible film....more info

  • PLEASE
    Ok this movie is obviously for women but somehow i got to see it when it was on HBO. This movie is for people too confused for the Matrix. So instead of getting confused with the Philosphy of the matrix ,come see Charlie's Angels which rips off the special effects but doesn't give a reason why "The Angels" can fly and flip and do all this stuff that can't possibly be done. Atleast in the matrix there was a reason. I would give this movie 0 stars if Amazon.com went that low. Hey if you didn't understand the matrix go see this movie. You will get all the action but no storyline....more info
  • Once upon a time, there were three little girls who watched a television show....
    Charlie's Angels (2000) And they all grew up to be successful movie actresses and they made sure this series became one to make the jump to the Big Screen. It follows the successful blueprint of The Brady Bunch Movie: take the concept of the series and subvert it in some way. The filmmakers wisely clue the audience in right away, having one of the characters verbally deride a (fake) feature film called TJ Hooker-The Movie. With that sense of humor, this feature proceeds to have a grand old time poking fun at the semi-campy series it was derived from.
    We follow Drew Barrymore (also one of the film's producers), Cameron Diaz (There's Something About Mary), and Lucy Liu (Payback) through a lot of fast paced action nonsense that takes satiric jabs at everything from Mission Impossible to the Matrix.
    And it is a lot of fun. You do have to be in the mood for this kind of "wink wink nudge nudge" romp, but if you are, there's plenty here to enjoy, from flashy visuals to the three leads' beauty, from the scenery chewing bad guys to good ol' Bill Murray, adding his usual hint of the absurd as aide de camp Bosley.
    Now, apparently not everyone has the sense of humor needed to enjoy this, as there is not one single television Angel cameo to be seen, but thankfully John Forsythe once again lends his wonderful voice to the Angels' never-seen boss, Charlie.
    If you enjoy lighthearted (and possibly lightheaded) adventure, check this one out. Also with Sam Rockwell (The Green Mile), Kelly Lynch (Mr. Magoo), Crispin Glover (Back to the Future), and Tim Curry....more info
  • Chick Flick With Too Much Hype, Not Enough Bite!
    First of all I think C.A. is a start of something great. Finally us chicks get a movie where the women aren't whining and instead kicking butt! The actresses were good and C.A. is interesting to watch, but painfully overrated like many Hollywood films. I found the special effects cheap and at times boring. The best parts were when the girls got a chance to do the actual fight scenes themselves instead of just flipping in the air at 90mph. The plot was something you hardly noticed which is not good for a film. The film needed more Lucy Liu and less Drew Barrymore to really pull it over the top. Yep, it's a heck of a movie on a Saturday afternoon, but people who like more brains with their brawn will find this a bit...disappointing....more info
