A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Positive Role Models
Three very different "girls" are smart and extremely resourceful. But the fact they are always called "girls" and use their sexual attractiveness as a lure takes the girl-power message down a notch.
Violence & Scariness
Non-stop action violence, bad guys killed. Characters in peril.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle has non-stop "action violence," meaning that it is not very graphic. A character is impaled and several characters are killed. There is a brief graphic scene of a calf birth. As in the first movie, the Angels do not use guns. Characters use some strong language and make some naughty double-entendres. Alex's father believes she is a prostitute. Female and minority characters are brave, smart, loyal, and capable.

Is It Any Good?
This is pretty much the same movie as the first one, except with more of everything. More lovely heads shaking lovely hair in slow-mo as the Angels run away from more explosions. More lovely legs kicking more bad guys. More crazy get-ups (I know! Let's make them dress up like nuns! And strippers!). More surprise guest stars -- including one of the original Angels. More dancing. More booty shaking. More booty kicking. The only thing there's less of is plot, and does anyone who watches Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle really care about that? Certainly no one who made the movie did. Dylan, Alex, and Natalie behave as though they're at a slumber party where the girls blow stuff up and perform on-the-spot forensic analyses without any equipment in between setting each other's hair and short-sheeting each other's beds. This gives a bouncy, buoyant, bubbly feel to the story that keeps the energy level high enough to sail through the silly dialogue and story.
Problems include uninteresting villains and a dopey sidetrack as Alex's boyfriend (Matt LeBlanc) and father (John Cleese) have a pointless misunderstanding about what Alex really does on the job. Yes, Demi Moore looks sensational as an Angel turned bad, but her performance is weak. Justin Theroux is also wasted as Dylan's former boyfriend. Shia LeBeouf is in the movie for no particular reason. But Crispin Glover returns for a few nicely creepy moments as the mute Thin Man who has a thing about hair.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
