Charlie's Angels has been shown on cable for so long I think most people can remember dialogues by now. This smooth film features the stunning trio of Drew Barrymore, Lucy Lui and Cameron Diaz with Bill Murray and a young Sam Rockwell and is based on the famous TV series of the same name from the 70s. This film simultaneously pays homage to and makes fun of the television show. It is designed camp - a movie that openly acknowledges its dubious appeal and revels in it. The action sequences are well choreographed and there is something funny right around the corner after a fight ends. Charlie's Angels is far too light to promote any sort of serious or introspective discussion - and rightfully so (feminists keep off). Anything else would have been a disappointment and a waste. The movie is exactly what it needs to be to succeed: trashy, dumb, and flashy - in short, one of the guiltiest pleasures to reach multiplexes this year.
