    At some point during the pitch meetings for D.E.B.S. someone must certainly have used the words "Charlie's Lesbians."

    You might think there's no downside to a movie that peeks up the skirts of babes in micro-minis, but writer-director Angela Robinson's dimwitted satire is libido-killing proof to the contrary.
  3. The film has no idea of how to develop its one-joke premise. The tepid love scenes are as erotically charged as a home movie of a little girl hugging her Barbie doll, and the satire as cutting as the blunt edge of a plastic butter knife.
  4. A hideously unfunny spy spoof with pretensions to social satire in its treatment of a lesbian relationship.
  5. The movie has no wit, no charm, no cleverness, no traction. Simply put, it is no fun.

    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.) Full Review »

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. Full Review »
