Did everyone overlook this film, or was it just me? You wouldn’t know it by the poster, but D.E.B.S. is a funny and unexpectedly touching story about defying societal norms in high-peer-pressure environments like high school (except it isn’t a high school and it isn’t the real world, it is some kind of crazy FBI training facility where everyone wears plaid prep-school outfits). Thank goodness for my typical male interest in prep-school outfits, or I’d have missed this really good film.
D.E.B.S. and My Super Ex-Girlfriend are both must-rents; if you are like me, you’ll be rooting for G-Girl despite her eccentricities. For slightly more serious fare: I also recently watched the Robert Downey Jr. neo-noir Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and my housemate was right, it is an excellent modern version of the old gumshoe flicks – but with some funny to leaven the suspense.
