Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz, and Bill Murray
What a cute
movie. Drew Barrymore has certainly become quite the little movie
producer- and at the ripe old age of 25 no less. Her company Flower
Productions has a few clever tales under their belt, The Wedding
Singer, Ever After, and Never
Been Kissed, so I expected Angels to be pretty
good. Don't go expecting a Citizen Kane. It is what it
is - a pubesant fall film for teens of all ages.
top action with surreal James Bond like goings on.
it. The three angels, Dylan (Drew Barrymore), Natalie (Cameron
Diaz) and Alex (Lucy Liu) did a great job of being trendy beautiful
and properly butch. All the Matrix special
effects helped add to the super agent feel carried throughout.
Charlie's Angels story goes...Knox Enterprises CEO guy ( Sam Rockwell)
is kidnapped. The partner (Kelly Lynch) comes to the angels for
help. The girls spring-kick box-disguise themselves to action
and discover many twists and turns enroute to the truth. Never
trust anyone I always say.
Yes, the story's
about as indepth as this little blurbette-but it's the charisma
of the cast and the fun action scenes filled with strong women
characters for a change, that makes CA's work
was okay. He just seems to do the same thing all the time. Murray
plays Bosley...You may remember from Farah's Angels as
the middleman 'tween the chicks and Charlie the illusive pumpernickel
guy who owns the agency the angels worked for.
Glover shows up as The Thin Man....Dear god I love this
guy. What's he up to? Crispin is diabolically handsome as TTM
. Of course he's still a very bizarre creepazoid squared and his
performance alone is worth the bucks to see this one. Do you think
he's alright in the head - I mean in real life? Oh, I kid.
The guy's probably a mensa graduate fluent in six languages and
so plain he thinks nibbling on whole wheat triskets after the
gym is a treat. He probably wears penny loafers and cruises around
Hometown, USA in his leased Ford ...though I pray not.
I have to
bitch a bit though. Tom Green showed up in this. That ass from
MTV fame, and fiancée of Drew's. Okay-I love the gal, but
just cause your playing World Series-style- hide- the- ball- park-
frank with the guy is no reason to make up a couple scenes ( miss
matched repugnant scenes) for the boy. He was awful- per usual.
What is this goon's appeal? Would somebody please tell me. His
"comedy" is like fat grams in a Big Mac obvious!
Staged like a Lincoln Center Ballet! Argh, I can spend one more
character on him...
The boys are
gonna love this. These three girls are each gorgeous in their
own way, and enjoy showing the differences between the boy and
girl species. CA's makes you almost want to throw out the
"Cheese of the Month Club" selection, buy that
home gym, call the cardio-trainer and shed a few pounds of baby
fat-almost. Though, Cameron Diaz looks a lot like Jack
Skellington if you ask me.
well done cheesy movie about a cheesy TV show .
