    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.

    The terrific soundtrack, which includes the Only Ones' "Another Girl, Another Planet" and New Order's most excellent "Temptation," is heavily weighted towards the '80s, which is exactly as it should be.
  4. Alas, the movie isn't nearly as amusing as its premise, but it's refreshingly different from most run-of-the-mill teenage fare.
  5. 40
    Doesn't live up to its genre-crossing, parodic ambitions.
  6. The movie has no wit, no charm, no cleverness, no traction. Simply put, it is no fun.

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

    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 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
