Who the hell are these women? Here are some average looking chicks…A stereotypical white girl, what looks to be a stereotypical, no-doubt sassy latina, and a tough-as-nails black chick.

When did Charlie’s Angels stop being about smoking hot chicks who can find their way around a studio and look good in or out of clothes? Now it’s an exercise in racial equality. I can hear the conversation between ABS execs: 1,2.
Exec 1: “I’ve got i!”
Exec 2: “What?”
“Dude, Charlie’s Angels.”
“No, check it. We can get a famous actor to be Charlie and we don’t need to pay him crap because we’re just using his voice. Then we’ll get some half-assed, semi-attractive women to play the Angels.”
“Hmmm. It shows promise. But…if we’re really gonna get more than we put into this…we need to appeal to the widest demographic…”
“…are any of the people who liked the original C/A still alive…they might not like this.”
“Maybe but they’re like 90 now.”
“Write it up…”
Seriously, how is this happening? The original ‘Angels went off the air in 1981…I wasn’t born and my folks weren’t even married yet. But as a purveyor of all things related to attractive women…I think the movies were a stretch…You aren’t going to beat: Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett-Majors(R.I.P), and Jaclyn Smith. They were all hot and all displayed a natural charm that endeared them to their audience and while Lucy Liu, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz are all attractive, accomplished actresses; I don’t think they are nearly as good as the originals.
It’s amazing to me how far the entertainment world will go to make more money. Remake after remake…the main reason the original shows were so good is because they were the original. Like Knight Rider – can’t watch the new one- all is see is David Hasselhoff. The Dukes of Hazzard movie – Catherine Bach, from the original show was great…Alice Greczyn is cool too, but she isn’t Bach.
What are your thoughts?
(SIDE NOTE: LADIES/GIRLS: Stop doing the Charlie’s Angels silhouette pose…srsly…not hot.)
