Lucy Diamond's license plate is "ndasky", probably referring to the Beatles' song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". The character was referred to as "Lucy in the Sky" in an earlier draft of the script and in the short film this feature was based on. See more »
When the DEBS are trapped in the vault Max is seen banging against the vault door with a lead pipe. After another scene with Lucy and Amy, we see the remaining DEBS crouching down as the spikes come down and you see Max with an even longer lead pipe. Where did they get a lead pipe, much less two of them in a bank vault? See more »
I won't try to justify my liking of this film by making excuses for it. The fact remains is that D.E.B.S., both low-budget and low-key, was far more enjoyable than any major blockbuster or highly acclaimed movie I've seen in a while. Honestly, there are no major aspirations in this film and audiences should discard any major expectations too. Essentially, this is a movie that relies on a concept that has long been drained out of film-making - fun. The story itself, though weak in true substance, is hilarious and satirical. The characters are each interesting and worthy of further elaboration. Inevitably, the lesbian love story will always be the central point of D.E.B.S.'s popularity but somehow, it deserves to be. The romance between the hero and the villain, a concept that's a parody in itself, is especially charming.
So forget all your movie snobbery and just watch the damn movie. It's a beautiful way to spend 90 minutes.
