    It had its fair share of silliness. Good acting. Bill Murray was great. Story was likeable but not overly engaging or breathtaking. Overall not bad. Some may find it too comical .

    stupidly fun and stupidly funny movie. entertaining and pretty funny with goofy action. i was debating between 2.5 and 3.0, but sam rockwell's pure awesomeness swayed the decision. when i saw this in the theater i thought it was so stupid, i was too young and inexperienced to realize it should NOT be taken seriously rofl (2 viewings)

    5 Stars -Two moves i could watch over and over again. Powerful female characters, interesting plot. Spinning from the original show, using more physical combat than guns etc made it more enjoyable.

    Seems to have followed the "Mission: Impossible" cinematic formula in bringing back something from the previous generation's television set for the new with a modern update for generational tastes to be met. The filmic revival is driven by nicely-casted characters with usually known charisma, well-toned subtly volume jukebox that carries their stance while expressing how modern the update is besides the more comedic effect that works, and the action pieces being well-paced in a recognizable trendy fashion. After watching this, it gives the idea of the original program, along with the sense of the original's more dramatic effect that was obviously replaced. (B) (Full review TBD)

    Great take on the Angels. Great chemistry between the ladies and a light fun film. Highly enjoyable.

    The original series was much better than this movie. I can see they may have attempted to recreate the alluring concept of the original but it fails.

    This film is wildly 1990s hip and very of it's time, which is probably indicatives of how vapid the late 90s were, lacking in a clear identity of it's own, instead relying on retro nostalgia. Sure there was grunge, "Friends," and the Spice Girls, but those were really all just throwback as well and I'm not sure that's much of a cultural identity. But enough about 1990s being a cultural wasteland when compared to the 60s, 70s, or 80s. As vapid and lightweight of a film as "Charlie's Angels" is, it's also a whole lot of fun. Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu play the super spy/detective angels, with the help of Bosley, a always great Bill Murray, have to foil a plot to steal software or something. The plot here really doesn't matter because the film is basically a series of barely connected but funny scenes/vignettes consisting of comedy, sexiness, or well done fight sequences (choreographed by Cheung-Yan Yuen, the fight choreographer from my favorite Jet Li movie "Fist of Legend"). The fun does feel forced at times, but it's an extremely likable cast, which include a ton of familiar faces in supporting roles (Sam Rockwell, Tim Curry, LL Cool J, Luke Wilson, Matt LeBlanc, and Tom Green (there's a 90s wasteland figure I'd forgotten about!). Crispin Glover is the biggest standout of the supporting cast as the deadly mute assassin know as "Thin Man" who dresses like he's stepped off the set of "The Avengers." Overall, "Charlie's Angels" is the epitome of fluff, but it's enjoyable fluff and not all that dissimilar from a 1960s Flint or Matt Helm movie.
