Charlie's Angels is a 2000 comedy directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol. It is a modern adaptation of the popular 1970s television series of the same name. Tomboyish Dylan (Drew Barrymore), chic Alex (Lucy Liu), and charming Natalie (Cameron Diaz) are elite spies known as Angels working for a mysterious millionaire named Charlie (John Forsythe), whom they have never actually met. Through a loudspeaker in the women's office, Charlie tasks his Angels with finding out who kidnapped the prominent electronics mogul Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell). With help from Charlie's goofy assistant Bosley (Bill Murray), Dylan, Alex and Natalie start to investigate Roger Corwin (Tim Curry), who is the leader of a rival software company called Redstar. But when the girls find out that things in their investigation are not as straightforward as they seem, they must use their quick wit, superior intelligence, and feminine wiles to bring the bad guys to justice.
