TCP - Girl Power



Charlie's Angel would be the perfect movie that show girl power. Three women, detectives with a mysterious boss, retrieve stolen voice-ID software, using martial arts, tech skills, and sex appeal is indeed a total women impowerment hehehe. I like this movie especially Lucy Liu, she is very good. Girl Power is this week them for movie enthusiast in Tuesday Couch Potatoes hosted by Kikamz. head on over at her site by clicking the badge to see more girl power movies.

The film is based on the television series of the same name from the late 1970s, which was adapted by screenwriters Ryan Rowe, Ed Solomon, and John August. The film stars Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as three women working for a private investigation agency.

Charlie's Angels is a loose sequel of the original series. John Forsythe from the original series returned as Charlie's voice. The film was followed with the 2003 sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Here is the PLOT
Natalie (Cameron Diaz), Dylan (Drew Barrymore), and Alex (Lucy Liu) are three talented women currently at the employ of the unseen "Charlie" (voice of John Forsythe), who gives them cases to investigate via a speaker in his offices, and backing them with support for disguises and equipment; Charlie is assisted by Bosley (Bill Murray), who helps the women directly when needed. They are assigned the case of the kidnapping of Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell), a programmer and head of Knox Enterprises, supposedly by a company called Redstar for his voice tracking and identification system. The three women infiltrate a party held by Redstar's owner, Roger Corwin (Tim Curry), and spot a thin man that was seen on the surveillance videos during Knox' kidnapping. They give chase, and eventually corner and fight the thin man, but he runs off; when the women follow, they discover Knox.

After reuniting Knox with his partner Vivian Wood (Kelly Lynch), Knox implores them to help understand what Redstar would do with his software. The three manage to infiltrate Redstar's secure computer system and plant a device to allow them to explore the Redstar mainframe at their leisure. They leave the laptop with Bosley and consider the mission successful. The group relaxes for the night, with Dylan taking up an offer to spend the night with Knox. However, Dylan discovers that Knox had planned the events all along with help from the Thin Man (Crispin Glover) and Vivian; by gaining access to Redstar's server, he is able to seek out the location of any voice that can be detected on it. Knox shoots at Dylan, believing to have killed her, though Dylan is able to escape unharmed. When she regroups with Natalie and Alex, she finds they have also been attacked but each escaped, that Corwin has been murdered, and that Charlie's offices have been blown up. They learn from a radio transmitter implanted in Bosley's teeth that he is unharmed, captured by Vivian before the explosion, and are able to use information to target his whereabouts.

The women, with help from Dylan's current boyfriend "The Chad" (Tom Green), are able to approach the abandoned lighthouse that Knox is holding Bosley in. They discover that Knox is planning on using the software and the Redstar server to physically locate Charlie when he next attempts to contact Bosley, as he believes Charlie was responsible for his father's death in the Vietnam War. While they are able to defeat Vivian and the Thin Man and rescue Bosley before Knox blows up the lighthouse, they are too late to stop him taking off in a helicopter armed with a missile to home in on Charlie's location. The women manage to board the chopper and reprogram the missile, sending it back to blow up the helicopter and kill Knox while they land safely in the ocean. Seeing the opportunity to finally meet their benefactor, the women enter the house Knox has targeted to find Charlie has already left, though remotely congratulates them on a job well done. The women and Bosley are treated by Charlie to a vacation getaway, where Charlie speaks to the Angels by telephone. Though unseen by most of the group, Dylan suspects that she sees Charlie nearby talking into a cell phone.

Charlie's Angels -- fun on tv, more so on the big screen! But more than the movie's entertainment value, I love how Drew Barrymore, as producer, doesn't make use of her position to upstage the other girls. In another sense, that's also girl power.
