Charlie's Angels Slammed By Critics

CharliesAngels092211.jpgThe reviews are in -- and unlike the Charlie's Angels girls themselves, it's not pretty.

Angels is set to premiere on ABC tonight, the second reboot of the original 1976 TV series that starred Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and and Kate Jackson.

This 2011 version gives us beauties Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh as the trio of butt-kicking leading ladies. While all three are gorgeous, that's apparently all there is to this remake.

Critics are panning the series across the board, calling it absurd and boring while picking apart everything from a plot that doesn't work to the terrible dialogue. One of our favorite reviews comes from the Chicago Tribune. "Angels was a hit 35 years ago because viewers obviously didn’t mind idiotic dialogue and illogical plots," critic Curt Wagner wrote. "Oh, and it also worked because so few action shows had women as leads. Things have changed since then, though."

Looks like we'll be praying that NBC can find a role for Minka again on Parenthood.
