Nor had I heard of the movie, for that matter, until I saw it in Blockbuster's "What's New" webpage, earlier in the week. I think the summary was something along the lines of "Hot chicks wearing skimpy clothing and doing kung-fu fighting - what's not to like?" Sold, I thought.
Looking at the cover, wherein Holly Valance (Neighbours, failed pop career), Jaime Pressly (Charmed, Torque) and Devon Aoki (Sin City, 2 Fast 2 Furious) look vaguely Charlie's Angels-ish, I was expecting, well, Charlie's Angels. Y'know - some special secret agent group foiling super-villains, while having perfect hair and nails, in high heels. Nope, it's all about a fight competition. But the hair, nails and heels still hold.
And it's fun. It knows it's not high-brow stuff. Hey, it knows it needs those heels just to reach low-brow, but it doesn't care. It says, "sod this, let's just enjoy ourselves for a bit."
Favorite moment: Pressly's interactions with her father. Imagine that: you're young, trying to be independent and stand up for yourself and generally make an impression, and your dad turns up. How embarrassing.
