Filmmaker Angela Robinson writes and directs the action comedy D.E.B.S., a feature-length adaptation of her award-winning short film produced by a grant from POWER UP (Professional Organization of Women in Entertainment Reaching Up).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's so spoofy it's difficult to call 'good' or even 'bad'; just say it's smooth."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"The most endearing aspect of D.E.B.S., a sweet-spirited spoof, is that the lesbian romance is played for real, with no nudge-nudge wink-wink irony."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Never really amounts to anything comedic or entertaining."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's corny, clichéd, and often an absolute hoot."
‑ Todd R. Ramlow, PopMatters
"It wants to be funny, or, failing that, at least fun, and yet it is neither."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"Is it a satire of stupid movies? Is it just a stupid movie?"
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A prime example of a dispiriting trend: movies whose primary point of reference is other movies."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"Pretty disarming overall, and has a nicely satiric edge to it."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"It's campy, but it isn't a camp classic."
‑ Donald Munro, Fresno Bee
"The material feels stretched thin over feature length, and indeed, it was a short film first and should've stayed that way"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, Los Angeles CityBeat
"Only the world of X-rated movies overlooks such flimsiness of plot, absence of acting talent, cheap special effects, banal dialogue and scantily clad young women."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Cartoonish Charlie's Angels with lesbians."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"It still has some of the fun jokes and the carefree, slam-bang premise, but lacks the punch of its predecessor."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"With the fun, nonstop momentum of a Saturday morning cartoon, D.E.B.S. makes you forgive most of its shortcomings."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Works perfectly well as a 10-minute short film (with four of those minutes consumed by the opening and closing credits), but flunks out as a 91-minute feature."
‑ Peter Debruge, Premiere Magazine
