"Good morning, Charlie!"
Rating: 1/5 -- A film whose slick editing and glib lines are absolutely no substitute for real drama and proper exchanges. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- Barrymore is the best of the three here but the group has great chemistry and they work well as a cohesive unit. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- A speedy, ask-no-questions pop contrivance that, as long as it keeps sparkling and whirling, continually amuses.
Globe and Mail
Rating: 5/5 -- A radiantly dopey Saturday-night escape hatch. Full Review
It's a hollow package that dumbs down wherever possible. Full Review
This is nothing but trailer moments. Ex-pop video director McG couldn't organise a pillow fight in a bedding factory. Full Review
...Snazzy postmodern trash....Held together by the irresistible moxie of its three stars... -- Rating: B
Based on the babe-a-licious show from the 1970s, CHARLIE'S ANGELS is a defiantly goofy action movie featuring plenty of comedy and a strong sense of girl power. Three talented young women work for the mysterious Charles Townsend: Natalie (Cameron Diaz), the bubbly blond science expert; Dylan (Drew Barrymore), the rebellious tomboy; and Alex (Lucy Liu), the tough Angel who has trouble telling her boyfriend that she's a highly skilled secret agent. The Angels are assigned to locate Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell), a kidnapped computer expert whose new software could threaten global security if it were to fall into the wrong hands. The women go undercover to investigate this devious tycoon and are faced with double crosses, explosions, and the mysterious Thin Man. From the acclaimed music-video director McG (Joseph McGinty), CHARLIE'S ANGELS wastes little time on plot, instead presenting audiences with a series of spectacular MATRIX-style fight sequences, car chases, and stunts. Diaz, Barrymore, and Liu as the three Angels give terrific performances worthy of a new breed of female action hero, kicking major butt while remaining lovable and sexy. The movie also stars Bill Murray as the Angels' mentor, Bosley, and John Forsythe as the voice of Charlie.
- Theatrical release: November 3, 2000.
- Filmed on location in Southern California.
- After production ended, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore went skydiving together at Lake Elsinore.
- CHARLIE'S ANGELS grossed $40.1 million in its opening weekend in theaters, the second largest amount (after TOY STORY 2) for any movie not released during the summer.
- Based on the popular television show produced by Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg, which ran from 1976 to 1981 and starred Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson, Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack, and Tanya Roberts as the Angels. Cameron Diaz said that when she was young, "My sister was Farrah and I was Bosley."
- Actor John Forsythe performed the voice of Charlie in the original television series and reprises his role in this film.
- Actress Thandie Newton was originally scheduled to play the third Angel, but delays in the filming of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE II caused her to be replaced by Lucy Liu.
- CHARLIE'S ANGELS was coproduced by Drew Barrymore's production company, Flower Films, which also produced NEVER BEEN KISSED. Barrymore insisted that the film not rely on traditional gun violence and instead feature martial arts battles.
- This film is the directorial debut of McG, aka Joseph McGinty Nichol, a music-video director who has worked with such groups as Smashmouth and Sugar Ray.

- T.J. HOOKER, the television series mocked briefly in the film, was another television series produced by Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg, creators of CHARLIE'S ANGELS.
- The martial arts sequences in this film were choreographed by Cheung-Yan Yuen, the brother of Wo Ping Yuen, fight choreographer for THE MATRIX. Barrymore and Diaz trained with Yuen for six to eight hours a day, for three months, in preproduction; Liu trained for two months.
- During production there were reports of trouble on the set between various cast members as well as tension because the script had not been completed.
- As many as 17 writers contributed to the film's screenplay.
- The house where a nude Drew Barrymore drops in on a pair of boys is the same house used for Steven Spielberg's E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, in which Barrymore played a little girl.
- CHARLIE'S ANGELS was named one of the 10 best films of 2000 by Ed Halter of the New York Press.
