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.

I won't try to justify my liking of this film by making excuses for it. The fact remains is that D.E.B.S., both low-budget and low-key, was far more enjoyable than any major blockbuster or highly acclaimed movie I've seen in a while. Honestly, there are no major aspirations in this film and audiences should discard any major expectations too. Essentially, this is a movie that relies on a concept that has long been drained out of film-making - fun. The story itself, though weak in true substance, is hilarious and satirical. The characters are each interesting and worthy of further elaboration. Inevitably, the lesbian love story will always be the central point of D.E.B.S.'s popularity but somehow, it deserves to be. The romance between the hero and the villain, a concept that's a parody in itself, is especially charming.
So forget all your movie snobbery and just watch the damn movie. It's a beautiful way to spend 90 minutes.
