The "Angels", three investigative agents (Barrymore, Diaz and Liu) who work for the Charles Townsend Detective Agency, return for another high-octane series of adventures as they investigate the theft of a database of witness protection profiles, after five of the people on the list are murdered. They're aided by a new Bosley (Bernie Mac), in an adventure which pits them against a "fallen angel" (Moore), their old nemesis, the Thin Man (Glover), and others.
Outstanding picture and sound plus tons of features make Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle a fully loaded DVD. Don't expect more T&A in the unrated edition, however. The only difference is glimpses of more intense violence in a few of the fight scenes. For example, in the theatrical version you'll see an angel flying through the air, but in the unrated version you'll then see her lying expressionless on the ground. Also, blood flies out of Drew Barrymore's mouth in one scene. On his commentary track, director McG discusses inside jokes, visual effects, and shots that didn't quite work for him. Like a TV sportscaster, he uses a telestrator, but only to occasionally circle items of interest or draw arrows. There's also an amusing commentary track by the three writers, who chuckle over inside jokes and discuss how the film was changed from the original script. They preface their comments with: "I guess they asked us to do this just to prove that writers worked on this movie." "Who are we kidding? Who's listening to this right now?"
If you want still more info, there's a trivia track with pop-up factoids with occasional links to more featurettes, a jukebox that offers clips of 11 songs and explanations of why they were picked, a cameo-graphy that offers clips of 13 personalities and why we should know them, and eight 4- to 18-minute featurettes exploring such topics as stunts, vehicles, costumes, and the Pussycat Dolls dance troupe. And in the next evolution of product placement, the DVD-ROM "Shop the Scene" feature allows you to search for a character's outfit or gadget then buy it online. --David Horiuchi

Let's dig into the meat of it all. We all know (at least we do now), that I care little for Drew Barrymore. So let's toss that off to the side. Cameron and Lucy are hot, hot, hot. Excellent outfits, they look fantastic - and we get Cameron's smile all throughout the film, a major plus in my book. Demi Moore does an excellent job with her character, although we don't see much of the character throughout the movie - a true shame, but her character had a lot of flair to it. Bernie Mac. Could they have picked a worse follow-on character for Bill Murray's Bosley?? Hardly. Bernie's character is boring, not funny, and totally miscast. We get a return of the "Thin Man" character from the first film, but again, it is botched in trying to explain his origins.
The fight scenes are simply incredible. And I mean that in a fantastical sense - one where reality becomes comic-bookish. Once you get past that idea, and settle on the comic-book flavor of the movie - the fight scenes become a lot of fun to watch. Lucy's kicks are just incredible to watch, and once again the outfits are great. Unfortunately, one cannot say that about the plot. Poorly written - cheesy, campy, tons of plot holes to drive the VIII Corps through....but its fun.Read more ›
Still, the overall production is impressive, and it does have a few nice moments (the menacing Irish gangster, about as out-of-place in this movie as a classy villain like Hannibal Lechter would be), and John Cleese as Lucy Liu's father in a typically good performance. It might just be worth seeing, if only to see the unique way in which they managed to botch it.
