Charlie's Angels Reviews

February 9, 2006
This is nothing but trailer moments. Ex-pop video director McG couldn't organise a pillow fight in a bedding factory.
June 30, 2003
Charlie's Angels is like a Hong Kong flick but without the bogus spirituality and excruciating schlock-pop ballads.
March 19, 2002
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.
May 8, 2001
These kickass Barbies bring heart to a machine-tooled genre.

The good-natured humor of its three stars, who appear to be having a gas playing these ridiculous figures, goes a long way in overcoming the bad jokes and even worse plot twists.
January 1, 2000
While the initial three-on-one fight between the Angels and Glover is an outright hoot, the excess, the sameness and the lack of so much as a bruise from all of it on any Angel T or A gets numbing.
January 1, 2000
Sure, it's easy on the eyes, but would a little brains be too much to ask?

Charlie's Angels is ... Cameron Diaz's movie.

January 1, 2000
The fact that Charlie's Angels amounts to little more than disarming patchwork scarcely seems to matter because it's so easy to ride the trio's exhilarating acrobatics and deftly self-mocking sex-kitten moves.
January 1, 2000
Charlie's Angels is like the trailer for a video game movie, lacking only the video game, and the movie.

So what if it arrives in theaters about five months late? Charlie's Angels is still the best movie of the summer.
January 1, 2000
I guess I'm just supposed to sit back and enjoy it, but somehow I feel exploited.
January 1, 2000
As a director, McG is far too hyperactive to hold the story together neatly.
January 1, 2000
The good news about Charlie's Angels: The gals are fab. And so's the movie.

This choppily edited film looks like confetti.
January 1, 2000
Funny, fast-paced, occasionally exciting, and you can't take your eyes off it.
January 1, 2000
You'd have to be a hopeless curmudgeon not to be entertained on some juvenile level by this motion picture.

Jokey homage? Hong Kong action blowout? What's going on here?

January 1, 2000
The funniest pop-culture romp since Austin Powers first pranced down Carnaby Street.
January 1, 2000
A no-brainer, it definitely is. But you'll leave the theater with a smile.
January 1, 2000
An amiable mess.
January 1, 2000
An utter debacle.

There's no grace or wit here, no surprise -- and not even much nostalgia.
January 1, 2000
An immensely entertaining movie.

Forty years from now, academics may want to deconstruct this movie into semiotic sushi ... For now, it's best that you turn off your brain and dip into the meringue.
January 1, 2000
[McG] is in way over his head.
January 1, 2000
It beats the similar opener to this year's Mission: Impossible 2 and it could make you wonder if Bond has ever done it better.
January 1, 2000
Charlie's Angels is something rare: a mess of a movie that is somehow infectious, and infectious not despite the mess, but because of it.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
The kind of self-reflective exercise The Last Action Hero could only dream of being.
January 1, 2000
This would have made a great summer movie.
January 1, 2000
Despite the fact that the film loses its razor sharp pacing and muddles its storyline, the movie still features plenty of big explosions, loud music and bare flesh.
January 1, 2000
Charlie's Angels is utterly good-hearted, mildly naughty fun that moves along at a cracking pace to the tune of a trendy pop score.
January 1, 2000
Though all this is fun and engaging in short bursts ... it wears thin and strains our patience when stretched to cover even this film's brief 92-minute length.
