Synopsis
Filmmaker Angela Robinson writes and directs the action comedy D.E.B.S., a feature-length adaptation of her award-winning short film produced by a grant from POWER UP (Professional Organization of Women in Entertainment Reaching Up). This 90-minute spy parody involves a secret crime-fighting unit made up of sexy schoolgirls Amy (Sara Foster), Dominique (Devon Aoki), Janet (Jill Ritchie), and Max (Meagan Good). A government agency recruited them for the team based on their standardized test scores, which assumed a propensity for lying and thieving. Their assignment is to take down major villain Lucy Diamond (Jordana Brewster). As it turns out, all she really wants to have an illicit affair with D.E.B.S. leader Amy. Michael Clarke Duncan plays the president of D.E.B.S. Academy. D.E.B.S. was shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Lighthearted, quickwitted, engaging. A great date movie.

Not since "Sugar & Spice" has a comedy achieved quite this special a tone--the smart combination of satire and charm--that D.E.B.S. achieves. This little throw-away is no world beater, but it is a lot of fun (once you get past the first couple of minutes and a lame joke or two). Then the lesbian angle appears and pays off tenfold: what an unusual way to address so many of the "family" issues facing America today! The Christian right will have a conniption, but the rest of us can sit back and giggle.

The ending could be a little more interesting and enjoyable, but getting there is plenty of both. It's great to see Jordana Brewster once again, and the other girls (including oldie Holland Taylor) are fun, too. In many ways, this is such a clever, well-directed romp that it's easy to understand why the writer/director Angela Robinson was handed the reins to "Herbie: Fully Loaded": She's got style, sass and sweetness to spare.

Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
