Hollywood Elsewhere sincerely apologizes for missing last night’s all-media screening of Elizabeth BanksCharlie’s Angels. It’s not that I didn’t want to see it…okay, maybe it is that. Maybe I subconsciously “forgot” for this reason.

Rotten Tomatoes 61% + Metacritic 56% = forget it.

“The movie is relentless, pulpy and exciting, unabashedly derivative, and — at an hour and 58 minutesa little too much of a rousingly of-the-moment feministic but still rather standard-issue thing.

“The new Charlie’s Angels is a heavier chunk of escape than any previous Angels incarnationif the early2000s films were pop, this one is metal.” — from Owen Gleiberman’s apparently gently phrased review.
