    Splashed and accessorized with brainy nonsense, "D.E.B.S." is a "H.O.O.T."

    Cute, campy and as proudly insubstantial as its heroines' micro-miniskirts, D.E.B.S. deftly fulfills its Jane Bond fantasies without so much as breaking a nail.

    If you didn't like "Charlie’s Angels," there’s a good chance you'll enjoy the smarter, sexier D.E.B.S.

    But even by the dull standards of movies so far this year, it seems mighty piffling.
  5. Alas, the movie isn't nearly as amusing as its premise, but it's refreshingly different from most run-of-the-mill teenage fare.
  6. 40
    An incorrigible tease. It baits its audience with the promise of fluffy, light-footed cotton-candy fare, but delivers a clumsy, talky, indifferently filmed lesbian romance.
  7. The movie has no wit, no charm, no cleverness, no traction. Simply put, it is no fun.

    This film works when viewed with an open heart and with your sense of humour switched on. On one level a warm gentle lesbian love story, and on another a really good example of a genre that works best when (as here) it doesn't take itself too seriously. Total fun. Expand

    People get it or don't get it. It's a light hearted spoof, doesn't take it'self serious movie, played for campy fun and a smile on your face. I found it a hoot in some places and put a smile on my face for the most part. Expand

    Caught it on cable with absolutely no prior knowledge of the movie. Laughed out loud! (Sang out loud to "A Little Respect"). The movie is cute, funny, and romantic. All 4 lead D.E.B.S. are a hoot (Sara Foster maybe least so), and Jordana Brewster is perfect. Bought it immediately on DVD, and pop it in whenever we're in the mood for a fun movie. I guess it's a guilty pleasure, because it's on most critics' "worst" lists, but it's on my personal "best" list... (for the record - I'm not a lesbian, my whole family likes it, and my daughter swiped it when whe went off to college.) Expand
