There wasn’t a moment during Charlie’s Angels when I regretted seeing the movie. Afterwards, I felt like I had wasted two hours, but during, never.

Charlie’s Angels would be a cookie-cutter action movie, except that it has Girl Power! It’s the poster film for the post-feminist, Girls Rule culture of America. Loosely based on the 1970s crime drama, it features Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu as butt-kicking, bodacious, flirtatious secret agents. Unlike the deadly serious James Bond and Mission: Impossible films, Charlie’s Angels makes an enjoyable mockery of the spy genre. The film is all energy, all style, and no substance. Surprisingly, I found energy and style to be enough.
