Charlie's Angels is a 2000 American action comedy film directed by McG, starring Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore as three women working for a private investigation agency. 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. Unlike the TV series which had dramatic elements, the film featured more comedic elements than seen in the series.
Co-produced by Tall Trees Productions and Flower Films, Charlie's Angels was distributed by Columbia Pictures, and co-starred Bill Murray as Bosley, with John Forsythe reprising his role from the original TV series as the unseen Charlie's voice. Making cameo appearances are Tom Green, who dated Drew Barrymore at the time of the making of this film, and L.L. Cool J.
The film was followed with the 2003 sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.
Dylan Sanders (Drew Barrymore), Natalie Cook (Cameron Diaz), and Alex Munday (Lucy Liu) are the "Angels," three talented, tough, attractive women who work as private investigators for an unseen millionaire named Charlie (voiced by Forsythe). Charlie uses a speaker in his offices to communicate with the Angels, and his assistant Bosley (Bill Murray) works with them directly when needed.
