Trivia

After everything was filmed both actresses Sara Foster and Jordana Brewster had to come back to film the 'sex' scene again. Director Angela Robinson thought the first one wasn't convincing enough. Strangely, in the end the director used the first version. The 'hotter' sex scene can be found as a deleted scene on the DVD. See more »

no Hollywood copycatting but a brilliant parody!
21 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Well, M.A. Martinez is certainly entitled to his opinion, but I think a different point of view should also be represented on this page:

The way I see it, D.E.B.S. is not a re-hash of Charlie's Angels, nor is it trying to be an action movie. It is - more than anything - a parody of Charlie's Angels and it uses ironic exaggerations to point out the weaknesses in the original. Thus the skimpy schoolgirl skirts. They are definitely not meant "to win over male audiences", as male audiences aren't really the target audience for this movie. Of course the girls in D.E.B.S. are poor role-models. They aren't meant to be role-models - they are parodies of the kind of empty-headed heroines Hollywood usually serves us with. I didn't find the humour forced, but I guess it's a matter of personal taste. What I found remarkable, though, was that this film managed to be far more entertaining than Charlie's Angels, though it was produced with only a fraction of its budget. To sum it up: Very good fun if you like irony and can deal with a bit of silliness on the side!
