D.E.B.S. Reviews

May 20, 2005
It's so spoofy it's difficult to call 'good' or even 'bad'; just say it's smooth.
March 28, 2005
Is it a satire of stupid movies? Is it just a stupid movie?
March 25, 2005
Only the world of X-rated movies overlooks such flimsiness of plot, absence of acting talent, cheap special effects, banal dialogue and scantily clad young women.

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.

A prime example of a dispiriting trend: movies whose primary point of reference is other movies.

Those who are hoodwinked into leaving home for such deliberate mediocrity may get a sense that the movie's biggest joke is at their expense.
March 25, 2005
Most of the second half is taken up by the surprisingly sticky, amateurishly acted love story about desperate lovers on opposite sides of the law, and there are long stretches without laughs.

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

The character traits of the D.E.B.S. are only slightly more useful than the color-coded uniforms of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Plays less like a send-up of Charlie's Angels than one of the endless D-list satires that clogged theaters 40 years ago near the end of the 007-inspired spy cycle.

A heat-free pseudo-lesbian spoof of Charlie's Angels by way of Heathers.

March 24, 2005
Unexpectedly fresh, thanks mostly to the sweetly exuberant love story at its center.

You might think there's no downside to a movie that peeks up the skirts of babes in micro-minis, but writer-director Angela Robinson's dimwitted satire is libido-killing proof to the contrary.

A former short film stretched beyond the interest of its wanly amusing riffs, it settles for easy, familiar jokes and slack storyline tension.
March 24, 2005
A hideously unfunny spy spoof.
March 24, 2005
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.

March 23, 2005
The movie has no wit, no charm, no cleverness, no traction. Simply put, it is no fun.

'Did you go to Dalton?' If you did, and played Buffy beer shots at your safety school, this one's for you.
March 17, 2005
D.E.B.S. stands for 'Discipline, Energy, Beauty, Strength' -- none of which is remotely detectable in a single frame.
March 16, 2005
A disarmingly silly confection.
February 18, 2004
Delirious sendup of girl-power films.
