”For all the coy postmodern jiggle of Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu are never more triumphantly feminine than when they’re trumping men at their own kick-butt game…a maximum jolt of bubble-gum nihilism.” (#718, July 11, 2003)

And director McG’s commentary reveals an unexpected irony: The nuns-at-the-orphanage scene was filmed at…the Playboy Mansion!
