Storyline

The Angels--Natalie, Dylan, and Alex are back again but this time they're preparing for a strike without even warning as they go undercover to retrieve two missing silver bands. These are no ordinary rings. They contain valuable encrypted information that reveal the new identities of every person in the Federal Witness Protection Program. When witnesses start turning up dead, only the Angels, using their expertise as masters of disguise, espionage and martial arts can stop the perpetrator, a mysterious "fallen" Angel. Aided by their trusty colleague, Jimmy Bosley, the Angels' adventure begins at a remote Mongolian outpost and ends only after Dylan is forced to face a dark secret from her past--a secret that puts the lives of her two best friends in danger.

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version was cut by three seconds (sight and sound of a head-butt to Dylan) to secure a more commercial '12A' rating. Furthermore, the unrated DVD edition widely available elsewhere could not be released in the UK at the time, as it would require being upgraded to a '15' rating, and BBFC policy would then not allow two versions of the same film with different ratings. In short, the UK DVD release is the cut, theatrical version without the extra scenes present in the unrated version. See more »

Outside of the obvious, a product meant for the landfill
16 July 2003 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, is a movie that I saw against my will with some friends who wanted to sneak into something in-between the start of another movie we were seeing. I felt, halfway through, that I was seeing something that gives the term "bubble-gum cinema" (if there ever was a such a term) a new marker. I don't really care if the actors and crew are having fun while making a movie (which I'm sure they did on this one, considering it was a break from doing any real film work)- if they do, fine, it can help occasionally. But at least have the courtesy to present something, anything that won't make me gag on my popcorn like George W. Bush trying to eat a pretzel.

From what I could make from watching CR2, the story is thinner than a model after returning from the toilet- The three angels, played by Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu, are after a device or something that goes missing, some kind of story like that (wasn't paying attention too much, sorry folks), and then they find that the mastermind is a fallen angel, Madison, played by Demi Moore. Along with the help of the new Bosley (Bernie Mac, who is going on a downhill slope via K-2 since his remarkable work in Kings of Comedy and small role in Ocean's Eleven), they'll fight back with all they're might.

The fact that I even vaguely recollect this plotline in the least gives you the idea of how meaningless this film is, except to its intended audience of giddy, clueless girls (I can only hope are still awaiting the age of reason) and horn-dog boys in the midst of puberty's genesis. I suppose that's what I mean in the one line summary as "outside the obvious"- the one reason, if any, to see this film is for the women, each one with a cuddly, lustful, and near sweet aura that at best is desiring, and at worst is a notch or two above European porno star. Moore herself works ok as a villain, that is, until she opens her mouth to speak.

I know I may sound picky here, and a film like Full Throttle isn't made for any kind of particular intellect (noticeably) above an IQ of 100 (the first one is proof of that as well), but does Hollywood have to do it like this, with scene after scene that is meant to just show off the director's penchant for directing music videos and giggling, kung-fu fighting star-cum-divas? I don't doubt it'll make plenty of money, and that everyone that worked on the film will be proud, yet if I ever see this movie again, at least for longer than five or ten minutes during the middle of the night with a bottle of hand lotion on the nightstand, I will either 1) turn off the TV and read a book, or 2) my head will explode. Grade: D- (for the obvious factor, although it's easily on my list of the worst of the year, definitely of the summer)
