Anyone who got any enjoyment out of the first film version of the popular television show will have no end of fun watching more of the same. Thanks to an inflated budget, the girls (, , ) have a lot more costume changes, high-tech gadgets and ridiculous action moves to show off, and this time the plot is even more complicated than the last. The three women who work for a mysterious millionaire private investigator (still voiced by ) are set after the retrieval of two rings that have encrypted upon them the whereabouts of every protected witness in the federal Witness Protection program. The two rings have been stolen, and it seems that whoever took them is about to sell them to the highest bidding crime syndicate for profit. The slickest subplot in the whole thing is a fabulous , who is looking better than ever, as an ex-Angel gone rogue who has a few dirty secrets up her sleeve. Celebrity cameos are a lot more plentiful this time, none more pleasing than a ravishing Jaclyn Smith of the original series, and the three actresses in the lead still seem to be having a great time kicking ass. It’s loud, vulgar, silly, empty and meaningless, and it’s worth every minute of pleasure it gives you.
