Charlie's Angels

Trivia: When Drew Barrymore is mostly naked and knocks on the window of a house, it is the same house that she lived in in the movie E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial.

Trivia: The Thin Man, who doesn't speak at all, originally had lines of dialogue. They were removed at Crispin Glover's request, and the filmmakers agreed it would make the role more mysterious.

Trivia: The original stars of "Charlie's Angels" - Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson and Farrah Fawcett - were all invited to make cameo appearances in this film but declined. Fawcett said she would only appear if she could do the voice of Charlie, and Jackson insisted on playing the villainous role that eventually went to Kelly Lynch.

Trivia: Three actresses turned down the role of Alex before it was eventually offered to Lucy Liu: Angelina Jolie, Jada Pinkett Smith and Thandie Newton. Jolie turned it down because she was not a fan of the original series, and Smith preferred to film "Bamboozled" instead. Newton was eventually cast as Alex but had to leave owing to freak weather which caused the "Mission: Impossible II" schedule to overrun.

Revealing mistake: When the Angels are fighting the "Creepy Thin Man," right before Drew Barrymore lifts up Lucy Liu to spin her around and kick the thin man, to get Lucy's attention, Drew hollers out "Lucy!" even though Lucy Liu's character's name is "Alex." (00:26:20 - 00:27:25)

More quotes from Charlie's Angels

Question: At the start of the film Drew (disguised as an African Prince) drags a guy with a bomb strapped to his chest from an aircraft. What was the bomber hoping to achieve? If he was going to destroy the aircraft - why was he interested in diamonds if he was about to die? If he was selling the device to the African - why was it ticking? If he was negotiating to be paid to not destroy the aircraft - what was his plan for escaping after he deactivated the device?

Chosen answer: I suspect that like much in this movie, it was merely conceived to be an 'exciting' opening for the movie and logic played little part in its inclusion.
