Satire of "Charlie's Angels"-type action films and teen movies, in which the high school-age secret agents take on the archcriminal Lucy Diamond (Jordana Brewster) with a surprising twist: Amy (Sara Foster), one of the leading D.E.B.S. (seniors chosen for an underground academy based on their abilities to lie, cheat and fight), comes face to face with Lucy, and instead of killing her, begins to feel the stirrings of a romantic attraction. Director and writer Angela Robinson's lesbian riff on a familiar genre -- surprisingly slick for an independent film (with some appealing performances) -- is not without bright moments, but despite imparting some worthy messages such as the value of friendship and being true to yourself, the ringing affirmation of physically giving vent to one's sexuality, gay or straight, particularly at the borderline age of consent, is troubling, even if presented as a lighthearted spoof. Some profane, rough and crude language, action violence, premarital sexual situations, overall thematic material, alcohol and tobacco use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
