Charlie's Angels is a 2000 American action comedy film directed by McG, starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as three women working for a private investigation agency. The film is based on the television series of the same name from the late 1970s, which was adapted by screenwriters Ryan Rowe, Ed Solomon, and John August.
The film, co-produced by Tall Trees Productions and Flower Films, distributed by Columbia Pictures, is a loose sequel of the original series. John Forsythe from the original series returned as Charlie's voice. The film was followed with the 2003 sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.
Natalie (Cameron Diaz), Dylan (Drew Barrymore), and Alex (Lucy Liu) are the "Angels" of the film's title, three talented women who work as private investigator for an unseen millionaire named Charlie (voiced by John Forsythe). Charlie uses a speaker in his offices to communicate with the Angels, and his assistant Bosley (Bill Murray) works with them directly when needed.
The Angels are assigned to find Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell), a software genius who created a revolutionary voice-recognition system and heads his own company, Knox Enterprises. Knox is believed to have been kidnapped by Roger Corwin (Tim Curry), who runs a communications-satellite company called Redstar. The Angels infiltrate a party held by Corwin and spot a "creepy thin man" (Crispin Glover) who was seen on the surveillance videos during Knox's kidnapping. They chase and fight the thin man, but he runs away. When they follow him, they discover Knox.
