The length of each girl's skirt was specific to the characters. Dominique's was the shortest; Max's the 2nd shortest; Amy's the 3rd shortest; and Janet's was the longest. See more »


During the D.E.B.S. first stake out of Lucy when they are hanging over Lucy's head, Max is sitting next to Amy. After the three girls' swings move off then come back to Amy, Janet is sitting next to Amy. It would have been difficult for Janet and Max to have switched places hanging that high in the air.

charlie's angels 2 done right...
27 June 2004 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

If the Wizard of Oz had given Charlie's Angels 2 a heart, some brains and some courage it might have become a film like D.E.B.S.

Set in a secret girl-spy academy, the film is an action comedy romp, made easy on the eye by silly special effects and the uber-short plaid uniforms of the leads. They are the creme de la creme of the academy and must prove their chops by dispatching Lucy Diamond, the new supervillain on the block. Lucy has problems of her own, however, as being a criminal mastermind can really interfere with your love life. When she falls for one of the D.E.B.S., the sparks, and the bullets, start to fly.

D.E.B.S. has the same exuberance as the Austin Powers films without the gross-out humor and the characters neatly blend action genre and teen-movie stereotypes. However, the introduction of a girl-girl romance slyly subverts rather than rehashes the material in a way that is fresh and consistently funny. The supporting characters are fabulous

  • every line deadpanned by the gauloise-puffing sexoholic Dominique is

a gem, and Jimmi Simpson's evil-henchman/romantic confidant steals most of the scenes he appears in.

Do yourself a favor and check it out...
