Happily Charlie's Angels is a surprisingly successful TV-into-movie update of the seminal 1970s jiggle show. Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore (who also produced) and Lucy Liu star as the hair-tossing, fashion-setting, kung-fu fighting trio employed by the mysterious Charlie (voiced by the original Charlie, John Forsythe). When a high-tech programmer (Sam Rockwell) is kidnapped, the angels seek out the suspects, with the daffy Bosley (Bill Murray in a casting coup) in tow. A happy, cornball popcorn flick, Charlie's Angels is played for laughs with plenty of ribbing references to the old TV show as well as modern caper films like Mission: Impossible. McG, a music video director making his feature film debut (usually a death warrant for a movie's integrity), infuses the film with plenty of Matrix-style combat pyrotechnics, and the result is the first successful all-American Hong Kong-style action flick. Plenty of movies boast a New Age feminism that has their stars touting their sexuality while being their own women, but unlike something as obnoxious as Coyote Ugly, Angels succeeds with a positive spin on Girl Power for the new millennium (Diaz especially sizzles in her role of crack super agent/airhead blonde). From the send-up of the TV show's credit sequence to the outtakes over the end credits, Charlie's Angels is a delight. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.comSee all Product Description

It's not The Godfather, but who cares? I think you can tell that director McG had a lot of fun making the film (which shows in the excellent commentary by him and the Director of Photography), and his visual style is heavily influenced by his standing as pop video director. So much of the film is so lushly produced they can get away with quite a lot of silliness. For example, the scene when Diaz and Luke Wilson visit the set of Soul Train sees Diaz throwing down her thing on the dancefloor, and it's all so watchable. Who cares if it's a little dumb?
Likewise, there are a few fight scenes (obligatory since The Matrix raised the bar on hand-to-hand combat) which have genuinely been choreographed well, and it is the girls doing most of those stunts; again the pace keeps you involved.
I haven't gone through all the special features on the DVD, but the commentary was really interesting to hear - I wish more films had these!
So, you know ... the plot is a silly and far-fetched, but that's what films like this are all about - I'll take this over the twaddle that the Bond franchise has become any day.
While the plot is, as it is with all spoofs, silly, it is, nonetheless, action packed and highly entertaining. Its tongue in cheek action scenes, as well as the sheer campiness of the movie, keep the viewer engaged. For sheer enjoyment, watch this film. You will not be disappointed.
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.
At least with the movie, they had a bigger budget to make the action sequences a lot more enjoyable and Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu do a fine job as the three newest Charlie's Angels.
The only one they bring back from the television series, though, is John Forsythe, the voice of Charlie. That seemed rather fitting, although I'm not sure why the chose Bill Murray to play Bosley, unless it was for comic relief. The small role of thin film enacted by Crispin Glover of Back To The Future fame is very significant and should have had greater exposure.
I love those camera shots where you see freeze frames with the actresses swishing their hair..very corny but really pleasant.
