Charlie's Angels

Critics Consensus

A thoroughly mediocre reboot of a fondly remembered series, this new Charlie's Angels lacks even the camp value needed to make it a guilty pleasure.

Tv Season Info

This 2011 remake of the hit 1976-81 series sought to update a goofy premise—impossibly sexy women fight crime, and receive their assignments from a mysterious man named Charlie who is heard from but never seen—with considerably darker plotlines involving child-slavery rings, forced prostitution and the assassination of an African king. Audiences didn't care for the result, and the show ended up getting canceled after just eight episodes had been filmed (one of which was never aired). Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh starred as the new team of Angels.

Critic Reviews for Charlie's Angels Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (16)

It feels like pre-chewed food: intended for easy digestion, it comes out (1) unappetizing, (2) textureless, and (3) devoid of character.

No thrills, no sexiness, no laughs. The new Charlie's Angels is far from heaven.

If you like smart women who hide the iron fist under the velvet glove, you'll get more satisfaction elsewhere.

Missing amid the action scenes is any real sense of fun.

Eye candy meets ham-fisted camp.

The underwhelming cast brings nothing to the boilerplate action.

Sep 22, 2011 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Let's spare ourselves the plot details. The show is barely interested in them itself, fizzing through the bullet points like an auctioneer with ADHD.

It's never a good sign when your action-filled episode manages to still be boring.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

While this show doesn't really offend on any level, it just sort of hangs there, like an unwanted dress from last season.

Sep 23, 2011 | Full Review…

It wasn't camp enough to be funny, the action barely kicked shin let alone ass and the story (drugs in Miami, yawn) was colder than leftover Christmas turkey.
