Susan Stark, Detroit News: An immensely entertaining movie. Read more

Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News: A no-brainer, it definitely is. But you'll leave the theater with a smile. Read more

A.O. Scott, New York Times: Sure, it's easy on the eyes, but would a little brains be too much to ask? Read more

Peter Howell, Toronto Star: It beats the similar opener to this year's Mission: Impossible 2 and it could make you wonder if Bond has ever done it better. Read more

Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: The funniest pop-culture romp since Austin Powers first pranced down Carnaby Street. Read more

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times: Though all this is fun and engaging in short bursts ... it wears thin and strains our patience when stretched to cover even this film's brief 92-minute length. Read more

Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle: Funny, fast-paced, occasionally exciting, and you can't take your eyes off it. Read more

Paul Clinton (, Despite the fact that the film loses its razor sharp pacing and muddles its storyline, the movie still features plenty of big explosions, loud music and bare flesh. Read more

Steven Rosen, Denver Post: This would have made a great summer movie. Read more

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly: Charlie's Angels is ... Cameron Diaz's movie. Read more

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail: A speedy, ask-no-questions pop contrivance that, as long as it keeps sparkling and whirling, continually amuses. Read more

Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture: The cast members seem to be having a high old time, and with sharper dialogue, an even higher time might have been had by all. Read more

James Berardinelli, ReelViews: You'd have to be a hopeless curmudgeon not to be entertained on some juvenile level by this motion picture. Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times: Charlie's Angels is like the trailer for a video game movie, lacking only the video game, and the movie. Read more

Stephanie Zacharek, As a director, McG is far too hyperactive to hold the story together neatly. Read more

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle: An utter debacle. Read more

David Edelstein, Slate: Charlie's Angels is like a Hong Kong flick but without the bogus spirituality and excruciating schlock-pop ballads. Read more

Nigel Floyd, Time Out: This is nothing but trailer moments. Ex-pop video director McG couldn't organise a pillow fight in a bedding factory. Read more

Todd McCarthy, Variety: This entertaining confection possesses the substance of the TV show, the pacing of a Hong Kong actioner and the production values of a James Bond thriller. Read more

Desson Thomson, Washington Post: The good news about Charlie's Angels: The gals are fab. And so's the movie. Read more
