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 »

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.
