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 … More

This is nothing but trailer moments. Ex-pop video director McG couldn't organise a pillow fight in a bedding factory.

Charlie's Angels is like a Hong Kong flick but without the bogus spirituality and excruciating schlock-pop ballads.

Top Critic

A speedy, ask-no-questions pop contrivance that, as long as it keeps sparkling and whirling, continually amuses.

The cast members seem to be having a high old time, and with sharper dialogue, an even higher time might have been had by all.

These kickass Barbies bring heart to a machine-tooled genre.

Top Critic

This entertaining confection possesses the substance of the TV show, the pacing of a Hong Kong actioner and the production values of a James Bond thriller.

Edgy girl power fun. You go, girls!

Common Sense Media

It's a hollow package that dumbs down wherever possible.

Full Review… | May 20, 2008

A radiantly dopey Saturday-night escape hatch.

Full Review… | September 24, 2007

The film is the equivalent of the 'dumb blonde' of action movies. No plot? No problem. Smile pretty now.

The most fun movie of the year.

Film Threat

Charlie's Angels never slows down, and even when it's not delivering the thrills or a fun fight scene, it's being just plain funny.

Combustible Celluloid

A virtual big-budget explosion? Yes. A spectacle of three great actresses making fools of themselves? Sure. MTV-worthy martial arts monages that shamelessly rip off The Matrix? Yessireebob. But a movie? No. Not for an instant.

Film Blather

Slick film fun like this doesn't come along very often.

Palo Alto Weekly

Silly, unoriginal and lacking any socially redeeming value whatsoever.

Full Review… | March 14, 2003

For a movie that gets its inspiration from one of the cheesiest television shows of the extra-cheesy 1970s, Charlie's Angels is surprisingly cool.

Film Quips Online

This is the enjoyably dumb action movie that Mission Impossible could (and should) have been.

Full Review… | October 30, 2002

A real mess, but that's somehow what makes it so damn fun.

Montreal Film Journal

Although the action movie is the last bastion of the male star, Charlie's Angels should change all that.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

This wants to spoof macho action movies.... But lacking a coherent script to link the jokes, these Angels are left without a prayer.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Diaz, Barrymore and Liu obviously relish each costume change and, unsurprisingly, they look sensational regardless of what they're wearing -- or not wearing, as the case may be.

A sassy, brassy, titillating bundle of joy, Charlie's Angels is as close to pure, unrepentant fun as any movie in years.

Audience Reviews for Charlie's Angels


Fun, cheesy, and helming some very dumb moments, "Charlie's Angel's" is a throwback to 90's action films, making this a very fun film to watch, even though it's completely ridiculous in almost every aspect. I must say that, growing up when I was younger, this was a movie I always watched, and recited almost every scene word for word, but I can't say I like this film even remotely as much now. It's farfetched, but in the best way possible. The dialogue is weak, the action is kind of lame sometimes, and the acting is quirky, but all of this mixed into one, with the premise it has, is good old fashioned fun. McG solidly directs this film, which has a weak script, which is kind of his forte. It's kind of annoying that he picks weak scripts really, but he makes this one work. "Charlie's Angels" is a lot of fun, not matter how stupid it really is!

You know what is a bad movie?.... well.... this is a bad movie...
The only thing that a REALLY like was Bill Murray and Tim Curry.

Although the story isn't that engaging nor does it have any brains involved but the captivating cast members and action sequences are both very very thrilling.

Charlie's Angels has a sense of humour and a splashy style not present in the original 1970s TV series. Chock full of cool, it's a top piece of fluff that delivers great action, stunts, kung-fu and sex appeal.
Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu get the star treatment and are looking damn fine. Bill Murray as Bosley is the sort of casting that reveals much about the film - dry sarcasm and satire being the order of the day - this isn't a serious action piece - you won't see people die in a hail of bullets, you won't see splashes of blood or heroes saving the world with deep meaningful glances - what you will see is a great deal of MTV editing and shooting, Matrix-quality special effects and a tongue in cheek performance from every single actor.
