Storyline

Recruited by the U.S. government for their unique ability to lie, cheat and fight, Amy, Max, Janet and Dominique join an underground academy of secret agents known only as D.E.B.S. These crime fighting hotties set out to save the world and keep their lipstick perfectly applied while doing so. Now the girls must combine their skills for their most important mission- to capture vexing vixen Lucy Diamond, the deadliest criminal the world has ever known. When D.E.B.S. star player, Amy, falls for Lucy, chaos erupts and the D.E.B.S. loyalty is put to the test. Written by D.E.B.S. Official Site

Quotes

Mrs. Peatree: [to herself, very upset] Treason! Obstructing justice? We're going to be the laughing stock of the intelligence community!
[whirls from fireplace to Amy]
Mrs. Peatree: I'm going to send you so far away that luxuries like toilet paper and diet coke are but a distant memory.
Max: Mrs. Peatree?
Mrs. Peatree: Is someone speaking to me? Because that would be very ill advised.
Max: Mrs. Peatree, this whole incident can no doubt be a source of embarrassment for the academy, and you, right?
Mrs. Peatree: Have I *not* been speaking English?

Fun Fabulous Furious
4 September 2004 | by (california) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see this movie at the Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. The movie is WONDERFUL- sure, it is as substantial as cotton candy, but it is GREAT to see a summer-blockbuster-type action film that spoofs so many

clichés, never takes itself seriously, and treats its lesbian characters with respect. The writer/director Angela Robinson spoke at the screening and indicated that the film will get a theatrical release, but the distributor is having trouble marketing the film because they don't know which market to target- teenagers, gays, etc. In short, if you think this campy action film will appeal to you GO SEE IT in its opening weekend (to be announced) to send a message to the studios that

taking a risk on an unusual, fun film like this was well worth it. Oh, and the music is great too! The soundtrack features 80's classics from New Order, Erasure, and The Cure, as well as contemporary stuff from

Fischerspooner, Goldfrapp etc.
