Chico's Angels: Is a funny
slice of heaven
"Make plans to see this new Angel spoof! I saw Chico's Angels last night...and could not stop laughing! The story is based on the Charlie's Angels episode "Pretty Angels All in a Row" but this comedy/musical takes the story to a whole new level. The three Angels are flawless, the supporting cast is unstoppable and the writing is witty and snappy. Oh...and how could I forget the costumes -- which were not only stylish but funny. Chico's Angels is a heavenly good time! A MUST see for any Charlie's Angels fan! " ~ Mike Pingel

Wagner Goes Full Throttle on Sony
Reuters reported on Wednesday, July 9th by Gina Keating that Robert Wagner is suing Sony Pictures Entertainment claiming he is entitled to half the profits from the two Charlie's Angels movies for his role in developing the 1970s television series on which the films were based.
Wagner and his late wife, actress Natalie Wood where silent partners with Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg with the TV series Charlie's Angels. It was their 1974 TV movie contract "The Affair" (original titled: "Love Song") which gave Spelling-Goldberg a clause to make the pilot for the TV show.
In his lawsuit, Wagner said Sony, which has since assumed all rights to the series from Spelling's production company, has refused to pay him his share of the profits from the 2000 film Charlie's Angels and its 2003 sequel Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Which the first film grossed $125 million (US) and $67 (US) for Full Throttle.
"This has to do with whether or not his entitlement to a share in the television series extends to the movie," Wagner's attorney, Samuel Pryor, told Reuters. No comment from Sony.
This is not the first time Wagner has sued over Angel profits. Just recently Wagner sued regarding "90210" due to the fact that FOX green lighted that show only after "Angels '89", which was based on Charlie's Angels was never produced. Wagner/Wood also sued in the 80s the Spelling-Goldberg team for profits from the TV show which the lawsuit was pegged "Angel Gate."
Maybe some one should tell Robert Wagner about the Spanish version Angeles. Which was a complete rip off of Charlie's Angels which aired on Sony's Telemundo Network in 1999 (when Sony owned the network).
Full Throttle Premiere
Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle premiered last night at Mann's Chinese Theater. Hundreds turned out for the star studded event. Angels, Drew, Cameron, Lucy all came dressed in white! Producers, Leonard Goldberg & Amanda Goldberg where all smiles. Full Throttle cast members such as Bernie Mac, Pink, Demi Moore, Crispin Glover and heavenly Angel, Jaclyn Smith also graced the red carpet.
Other hot stars who were on hand were Darryl Hannah, Mary-Kate & Ashley Olson, Kelly Lynch, Sharon & Kelly Osbourne, Ashton Kutcher, and Bruce Willis. Oh yeah...don't forget Mike Pingel from charliesangels.com.
A delightfully-sinful party followed the film with exotic cocktails, exotic food, exotic dancers all bathed in a red velvet. Excitement filled the air while Bernie Mac danced away and all flocked to give their blessings to the Angels. The party was in full throttle past 1am!
Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle opens Friday, June 27th.
