In the opening scenes when Max is waking the D.E.B.S. up, she yells at Dominique because she has a boy in her bed. In the commentary on the DVD, Meagan Good mentioned that the guy in Dominique's bed was a guy that she had actually been on a date with before they started filming the movie. See more »

When he runs out to shout that he saw Lucy Diamond he is carrying a joint between his fingers.

Well, M.A. Martinez is certainly entitled to his opinion, but I think a different point of view should also be represented on this page:
The way I see it, D.E.B.S. is not a re-hash of Charlie's Angels, nor is it trying to be an action movie. It is - more than anything - a parody of Charlie's Angels and it uses ironic exaggerations to point out the weaknesses in the original. Thus the skimpy schoolgirl skirts. They are definitely not meant "to win over male audiences", as male audiences aren't really the target audience for this movie. Of course the girls in D.E.B.S. are poor role-models. They aren't meant to be role-models - they are parodies of the kind of empty-headed heroines Hollywood usually serves us with. I didn't find the humour forced, but I guess it's a matter of personal taste. What I found remarkable, though, was that this film managed to be far more entertaining than Charlie's Angels, though it was produced with only a fraction of its budget. To sum it up: Very good fun if you like irony and can deal with a bit of silliness on the side!
