Trivia

An extremely profane argument between actor Bill Murray and Lucy Liu shut down filming for a day. Murray allegedly said: "I get why you're here (Drew Barrymore), and you've got talent (Cameron Diaz)... but what in the hell are you doing here? You can't act!" The remark is said to have prompted Liu to launch a physical attack on Murray. In recent years, Murray cited script problems as the reason for the feud. He explained: "We began rehearsing this scene and I said, 'Lucy, how can you want to say these lines? These are so crazy'. She got furious with me because she thought it was a personal assault, but the reality is she hated these lines as much as I did. I feel very warmly for her now." See more »

Goofs

Just at the start of the fight in the alley with the Creepy Thin Man and the Angels, he charges them and is booted into the air. As he comes back down, Dylan and Alex kick him, but watch above Creepy Thin Man when they do. It shows a mid-chest level view looking up at Thin Man of their kicks hitting his collarbone. You can see the entire exposed ceiling of the stage they're shooting the scene on. It's supposed to be an open night sky in the alley. See more »

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.
