Having just seen "D.E.B.S." at the Chicago Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, I'll tell you that it's been a long time since I've had so much fun at a movie. Aside from a few moments of heavy-handed drama, this is a fast-paced, wholly entertaining film that I never got bored with once--which, given my miniscule attention span, is most certainly saying something. Oscar material this movie ain't, but if you're looking for a funny, creative satire with interesting characters and a sweet, tastefully executed lesbian love story, this is the film to see. The acting is flawless through the majority of the film (these are people who do comedy extremely well, but falter slightly in the face of more dramatic scenes--which, thankfully, there are few), and Jordana Brewster in particular is stunning and subtle in her portrayal of the "criminal mastermind" Lucy Diamond. All in all, this was a film well worth the money paid to see it. I give it two thumbs way up, and I am most definitely going to see it again when it comes out in theaters in 2005.
