The brief Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle review:

Leave your brain in the car.

That said, if you've had a long and irritating week at work, and you are in the mood to see every major action movie and hit television show of the past 20 years parodied massively (I especially liked the spoof of the silliest scene in Goldeneye), and you can deal with an excess of Bernie Mac, and not enough Crispin Glover, this is fun.

The dialogue was sharper in the first movie, and there's only the barest nod to a plot to tie the fight and jiggle scenes together, but it was a lot of fun. In a sweet, wholesome, innocent sexploitative kind of way. Er. But you know what I mean.

And the parody of CSI's over the top investigative drama alone was worth the price of admission.

I'm reasonably certain the movie wouldn't have worked if it had attempted to make any kind of logical sense, but since every bit of exposition and logical connection is handled withg the same Dr. Who-esque, "I'll explain later," it's easy to relax and get into the mindlessness of it all.

I'll give it a double D-cup.

By the way, Cameron Diaz can *dance*.
