Storyline

Recruited by the U.S. government for their unique ability to lie, cheat and fight, Amy, Max, Janet and Dominique join an underground academy of secret agents known only as D.E.B.S.

Now the girls must combine their skills for their most important mission- to capture vexing vixen Lucy Diamond, the deadliest criminal the world has ever known. When D.E.B.S. star player, Amy, falls for Lucy, chaos erupts and the D.E.B.S. loyalty is put to the test. Written by D.E.B.S. Official Site

Trivia

The boy cleaning his teeth at Endgame was originally going to be smoking a joint, but it was changed to keep the PG-13 rating. However, the shot of him running into the ballroom wasn't re-shot, and you can still see the smoking joint in his hand. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning, as Lucy is running from the restaurant, Amy is in pursuit. They both end up running down a long Y-shaped corridor towards the exit, where they bump into each other. After their exchange and Lucy's escape, however, when the other girls reach Amy and the camera pans back, they are clearly not in the same corridor, as a third passage through the giant boxes and barrels behind the girls has suddenly appeared.

Quotes

Max: Who's your best friend?
Amy: You are my best friend.
Max: And what did I say to you the very first day at the Academy?
Amy: "That's my bunk, bitch."
Max: After that.

charlie's angels 2 done right...
27 June 2004 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

If the Wizard of Oz had given Charlie's Angels 2 a heart, some brains and some courage it might have become a film like D.E.B.S.

Set in a secret girl-spy academy, the film is an action comedy romp, made easy on the eye by silly special effects and the uber-short plaid uniforms of the leads. They are the creme de la creme of the academy and must prove their chops by dispatching Lucy Diamond, the new supervillain on the block. Lucy has problems of her own, however, as being a criminal mastermind can really interfere with your love life. When she falls for one of the D.E.B.S., the sparks, and the bullets, start to fly.

D.E.B.S. has the same exuberance as the Austin Powers films without the gross-out humor and the characters neatly blend action genre and teen-movie stereotypes. However, the introduction of a girl-girl romance slyly subverts rather than rehashes the material in a way that is fresh and consistently funny. The supporting characters are fabulous

  • every line deadpanned by the gauloise-puffing sexoholic Dominique is


a gem, and Jimmi Simpson's evil-henchman/romantic confidant steals most of the scenes he appears in.
