'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle'
(Drew Barrymore, Lucy Lui, Cameron Diaz / PG-13 / 109 mins / Columbia Pictures)

Overview: All of the Charlie's Angels actresses (Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu) are back in this second film inspired by the popular '70s TV show. Expect more martial arts, spy games, and masterful disguises from the gritty gals, but don't look for Bill Murray, who passed on the sequel. Bernie Mac (as Bosley's son) and Demi Moore (as an ex-Angel-turned-villain), however, are on board.

Verdict: Although infused with an irresistibly joyous spirit that simply cannot be faked, 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle' is a dizzying mouthful of unabashed silliness that leads to an equally precipitous crash once the buzz wears off after the film's first hour! As expected, the plot is of less consequence than the pop-culture references, star cameos, cheerfully jokey soundtrack and double entendres, but that all said, 'CA:FT' is harmless, brainless, good-natured fun, and yet another wholehearted tongue-in-cheek triumph!
