Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle - July 2003

Sequel Mania! Doesn’t anyone in the entertainment industry have any original thoughts?

"Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle"


You may have thought the "Charlie’s Angels" movie from 2000 was silly and you were right. Based on that impression, you would then have to think of "Full Throttle" as impossibly silly. And if you do, you will find it incredibly entertaining.

Nothing, nothing about "Full Throttle" makes any sense, so don’t even bother trying to follow the nonsensical story. And if you’re a stickler for the laws of physics, well, maybe this isn’t the movie for you. The good guys and bad alike all can defy gravity as easily as breathing, which is all part of the silliness thrill ride. My favorite silliness is a gunfight on supercross motorcycles – defying gravity, ignoring inertia, dodging bullets – it’s all in a day’s work for Charlie’s Angels.

[2009: Did I convey that you must want to see silliness in a movie in order for this movie to work? I thought I was a bit subtle.]
