Storyline

Ellie DeWitt and Janis Zuckermann are admitted to the very strict FBI Training Academy. They get a hard course, in which they learn to deal with guns and to recognise crimes. They also get a physical training. It appears that Ellie is a real fighting- machine, in contrast with Janis, the great student. They have to help each other, 'cause only when they pass all the tests, they are allowed to join the FBI... Written by Tony Kessen <rhkessen@cs.vu.nl>

Favourite movie
7 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Feds is great! So much humour and wit mixed with butt-kicking.

The movie really is empowering for any woman who works in a male-dominated field. They really do show many of the guys how to do the job right.

There is also a great showing of support for each other that really helps make the difference.

I wish they would release it to DVD. VHS is really a sad medium for film now. I want to add Feds to my DVD collection.

If you haven't seen Feds, do yourself a favour and rent it if you still own a VCR.
