CHARLIE'S ANGELS — WITH NEW ANGLES

"Charlie's Angels" appear to have lost none of their appeal or momentum from the '70's TV series, though the ladies now rely on physical instead of metal weapons, a smart move.
Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu are Bill Murray's little darlings this time around, and if that cast doesn't knock your socks off, you'd be better off at the bowling alley, or updating your stamp collection.
The angels are called into action to intervene in the kidnaping of a famous millionaire. According to one sage reviewer, "If you're willing to check your brain at the door and accept that Drew Barrymore can take out five men with her bare hands, while tied to a chair . . . ," well, this is your cup of tea or Gator Aid. Another wag noted, "This version of the 'bod-squad' is smart enough not to take itself too seriously." There's nary an ill comment about the movie, as the girls track down some high-tech thieves, and are backed by the well-known crime fighter, LL Cool J.
The movie is directed by Joseph McGinty and McG, music-video director, and rated PG-13 for action violence, innuendo and some sensuality and nudity.
It starts Thursday at Sunny Isle Theaters.
