''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)
EXTRAS The wide-screen, ''unrated'' special-edition DVD implies a saucier cut meant to miniskirt the film's theatrical PG-13 rating, but this version is indistinguishable from the original -- which isn't really a bad thing. The 35-minute special featurettes, however, include (literally) cheeky behind-the-scenes peeks at how the gals kick ass and look hot, plus perky ''This is fun!!!'' cast interviews. And director McG's commentary reveals an unexpected irony: The nuns-at-the-orphanage scene was filmed at...the Playboy Mansion!
