Goofs

Iroquois helicopters use mechanical linkages for the flight controls. Nor do any of the wires related to the electrical functions of the cyclic stick go anywhere near the cargohook area. Even if they did, ripping the wires out would not have any impact on the ability of the pilot to fly the aircraft. At worst, he would not be able to fire any more missile, release the cargo hook, fire the cablecut device for the hoist (if fitted), or use the push-to-talk switch (the red trigger on the front of the cyclic stick that many other films incorrectly use to fire weapons) to activate the radios.

Crazy Credits

In the beginning of the film, there is a cute transition between the Columbia Tristar logo and the film - The camera zooms into the clouds in the corner of the logo, to show a plane flying through these clouds. See more »

Alternate Versions

The DVD contains 3 deleted scenes not used in the final theatrical cut of the film. Bits of these scenes can be seen in the "outtakes" reel shown during the end credits.
  • A scene during Corwin's party where Corwin challenged Bosley to a game of Marco Polo in his pool. When Corwin loses, he challenges Bosely to sumo wrestling.
  • A scene in Redstar Headquarters where Dylan (Drew Barrymore) and Natalie (Cameron Diaz) have their break-in interrupted when Corwin walks by. They run into the men's room.
  • An extended version of Dylan and Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell) fooling around in his kitchen during the "Shake N Bake" sequence. In this version we see Dylan actually leaving the house. It is assumed she spends the night there in the final cut.

Silly, but quite enjoyable if you're in the mood.
20 June 2002 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Three little girls have become three little ladies who work as special agents for Charlie (via intermediary Bosley). When they are contracted in to get evidence of Roger Corwin stealing the kidnapped Eric Knox's voice recognition device. The agents are successful but Knox turns out to have more sinister motives and the angels find themselves fighting to protect Charlie and Bosley.

Yet another in a line of film remake's of old TV shows, in the words of LL Cool J `yet another remake of an old TV show'. However this just about succeeds for one simple reason – it never tries to take itself seriously. This works because it can be camp, silly and OTT because we know it's meant to be. The plot is OK and has some reasonable twists but really the jokes and action move it along. The silliness can get a bit much at times and is a little tiring.

For example we have far too many shots of the girls tossing their hair, and too many scenes that mean nothing. Eg a high speed car chase ends on a bridge but it has no reason for happening and nothing happens as a result. The fights are very OTT and are very much a matrix rip off – they are only just saved by the tongue in cheek attitude of the film. But even then they still silly.

The cast are OK but really they are just playing daft. Rockwell is really good and Bill Murray saves the whole film by being really funny. Tom Green is in it because his girlfriend felt sorry for him and wanted him to be in a film that got shown in a cinema outside of the US, however his character is stupid and pointless. Wilson is good and LL Cool J makes a good cameo, but Tim Curry has been better.

Overall it's enjoyable if you're in the mood for silly popcorn trash. If you're not in the mood this will only serve to irritate you at how poor Hollywood blockbusters can be.
