Please Make Them Stop.

  • Dec 5, 2003
McG got his start making music videos and that's clearly evident in this movie which only has about thirty seconds of screen time with no songs playing in the background. Not only that, but the movie really isn't a movie at all, but is more like a bunch of comical music videos lightly stiched together through a semi-decent plot. Besides the babes, the only thing good about the movie is the plot. Unfortunately, due to poor acting, editing, writing, and directing the plot is buried beneath landfill of pop-cultural mediocrity.

The movie goes something like this. There is a list that contains all the files for people in the witness protection program on two separate titanium rings. These rings are worn by two separate individuals who have very little communication with each other. Some one is out to get the rings and make a profit and the Angels are called in to find out who and stop them.

Bill Murray passed as Bosley on this one (Bernie Mac fills in as his adopted brother) and it's easy to see why. It's difficult to believe that this movie actually passes as entertainment. I mean, I thought the first movie was bad, but this film makes the first CHARLIE'S ANGELS movie look like a cinematic masterpiece. It's so sad, too. The series was much more intelligent and entertaining than either of the movies have been. Not only that, this film had a decent plot and could have made a decent movie. Alas, it wasn't too be. Instead, all we get is a film full of pretentious people who think they are funny and worth watching.

I would have given this film only one star, but the premise that is presented in the plot was enough to make me give it one better. I don't recommend anyone buying this and unless you're a huge film fan and have two hours worth wasting, I wouldn't recommend renting it either.

These are all some very hot chicks and that’s enough for me.      Adapted from the writings of Ivan Goff & Ben Roberts, and directed by McG, the second time around for these glorious angels is just as fun as the first …

Pros: Some good fun and stunts     Cons: No story stunts are beyond reality.     The Bottom Line: If you are a fan of the first you will like this, otherwise, you may want to wait for a rental.     Start with quick-cutting MTV style graphics, add a pulsing soundtrack and apply liberal amounts of T@A and you have “Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle” the latest Summer release from rising director Mc G.      The …

About this movie


Charlie's Angels: Full Throttleis a big, fun, bubble-brained mess of a movie, and that's exactly as it should be. Its popular2000 predecessorgot the formula right: gorgeous babes, throwaway plots, and as many current pop-cultural trends as you could stuff into a candy-coated dollop of Hollywood mayhem. This sequel goes one "better": The plot's even more disposable (if that's possible), the babes, cars, and fashions even more outlandish, and the stuntwork (heavily digital, heavily absurd) reaches astonishing heights of cartoon silliness. Reprising their titular (and shamelessly titillating) roles, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu are having the time of their lives, especially when sparring with ultra-buff rogue angel Demi Moore (looking better at 40 than most women half her age) and Justin Theroux as a sleazy Irish mobster. Bernie Mac replaces Bill Murray as angel-sidekick Bosley (they're step-brothers, don'cha know), which is one more indication of McG's intentionally reckless stewardship of an intentionally reckless franchise. Our advice: sit back, relax, and get jiggly with it.--Jeff Shannon
