Good story…badly told
9 October 2004 | by SajeevaSSee all my reviews

I believe that movies like this will definitely educate members of our generation about all those famous TV shows that now airs on cable, that people have not much idea over. Well one such programme is Charlie's Angels- though also having been made into 2 big screen movies, in 2000 and 2003, people know of it, but may be do not know about it.

Well this movie filled in all those gaps- about why Farrah left the show etc. Though this movie had information- it was badly given- well it is obvious that they just wanted the actresses portraying Farrah, Jaclyn and Kate to look like them- but that was it- they just had the looks- as for acting- it was definitely disappointing. However I must admit that the Farrah look-alike was supposed to be bigger chested. Not forgetting the fact that this movie gave room for certain scenes to make Aaron Spelling look like a schizophrenic.

I also noticed some trivia- the guy playing Jay Bernstein- Wallace Langham- played thie same role in the 'behind the camera: the unauthorized story of Three's Company' where he played Suzanne Sommer's agent. Something else which I noticed was when Aaron Spelling tells his kid daughter Tori that he is one day gonna have a TV show just for her - which actually happened- with the huge success of Beverly Hills 90210.
