Charlie's Angels (movie)

Charlie's Angels (2000) is an action/comedy film based on the 1970s television series Charlie's Angels.

The film was directed by McG, and starred Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu (as the three "angels"), Bill Murray (as Bosley), and Sam Rockwell. John Forsythe returned as Charlie.

The film relied heavily on the camp factor of shamelessly revisiting the television show's T&A theme.

The movie was followed by a sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003), with Bernie Mac (as Bosley) and Demi Moore.

The angels (Diaz as Natalie, Barrymore as Dylan, and Liu as Alex) have been hired by a Bill Gates-type software genius to hack into a rival's computer system, ostensibly to locate stolen software.

It is revealed, however, that their client is in fact the enemy and is using the angels to gain access to his rival's system. It turns out his father was a Green Beret with none other than the angels' boss Charles Townsend, and he blames his father's death on Charlie. He plans to use a combination of his and his rival's technology to trace Charlie's location via satellite and then kill him. Naturally the angels thwart this plan.
