Pretty disarming overall, and has a nicely satiric edge to it.

It still has some of the fun jokes and the carefree, slam-bang premise, but lacks the punch of its predecessor.

It's corny, clichéd, and often an absolute hoot.

It's so spoofy it's difficult to call 'good' or even 'bad'; just say it's smooth.
March 29, 2005
[A] cheering reminder of what can be done by clever people with a small budget and a lot of enthusiasm.

The most endearing aspect of D.E.B.S., a sweet-spirited spoof, is that the lesbian romance is played for real, with no nudge-nudge wink-wink irony.

Something supremely silly yet slyly subversive: a gay girl-power romance in skimpy exploitation clothing.

Breezy and silly and laugh-out-loud funny, full of throw-away lines and absurd humour.

Cute, campy and as proudly insubstantial as its heroines' micro-miniskirts.

It's smarter than it has to be yet makes virtually no effort to take itself seriously.

The movie feels like a live-action Saturday morning cartoon from the 1970s.

Unexpectedly fresh, thanks mostly to the sweetly exuberant love story at its center.

Even if it doesn't add up to a whole lot, the movie is content to tickle you gently more than jab you in the ribs. These days, that's saying a lot. Alas.

Robinson never lets her feature film debut -- expanded from a festival short after drawing raves at Sundance 2003 -- stray too far from its satiric base.

A disarmingly silly confection.

Flat out funny, but a lack of tension undercuts the plot.

There's an undercurrent of commentary that elevates it above spoof-dom.

D.E.B.S. is light and airy and frequently quite fun, yet one can't help but feel that the feature-length version is too little butter spread over too much toast.
