Treason! Obstructing justice? We're going to be the laughing stock of the intelligence community!

I'm going to send you so far away that luxuries like toilet paper and diet coke are but a distant memory.
Is someone speaking to me? Because that would be very ill advised.
Mrs. Peatree, this whole incident can no doubt be a source of embarrassment for the academy, and you, right?
Have I *not* been speaking English?

I have to admit, I really enjoyed this film. It's a tongue-in-cheek parody of the Charlie's Angels format with good laughs, yet it breaks away from that formula in interesting ways.
First of all, it's pretty racy as far as the revealing uniforms are concerned, so much so it takes you off guard at first.
However, what really shocked me was the well written lesbian love story. At first I reacted in typical guy fashion of: 'Alright! Two chicks going at it', but as you watch the story develop you sense something you don't often see in parody flicks. There's real chemistry here.
I don't know if it was great directing or acting, probably a combination of both, but there were some genuine emotional moments between the two love torn characters -- they were really connecting. It wasn't just a sex thing, but more a real substance, to the point where I found myself rooting for them to finally get together. You'll have to see the movie to find out.
Jimmi Simpson should be mentioned here. I swear I've seen him before, but can't remember where. Point is, his comic timing was flawless and there wasn't a line I didn't laugh on. Maybe I just liked his character or maybe we're going to see a lot more of him in the future.
All in all, it's a fun flick -- you'll enjoy it.
