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 »


In the opening scene there is a paper boy who throws a newspaper through the force field of the D.E.B.S. house. In the shot of the paper boy throwing the paper, the paper clearly penetrates the force field and lands in the hedges to the right of the front walkway.

Laughs, Guns, and Sex appeal
26 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

DEBS is an entertaining, charming flick that does not try to to do too much more than put a smile on the audiences faces. It is hard to imagine how it can go wrong: beautiful young women, guns, and consistent jokes. Jordanna Brewster does a nice job of bringing a great deal of sizzling sexuality to the character of Lucy Diamond. Likewise, Sarah Foster, Devon Aoki, and Meagan Good are equally sensual and fun to watch. Jill Ritchie is terrific as the airhead who is striving vigorously to earn her stripes. While Jimmi Simpson displays strong comedic timing which adds to the diverting and catchy feel of the movie. Kudos to Angela Robinson and the cast for bringing the proper energy and creativeness to the this flick.
