This film features two actresses who have starred in The Fast and Furious Franchise. The first one (most notably) being Jordana Brewster who plays Lucy Diamond here, has played Mia Toretto in The Fast and the Furious (2001), Fast and Furious (2009), Fast Five (2011), Fast & Furious 6 (2013) and Furious 7 (2015). The other actress being Devon Aoki who portrays Dominique here, portrayed Suki in 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003). However, in this film their characters never interact and they share little to no screen time together. See more »

Goofs

When the DEBS are trapped in the vault Max is seen banging against the vault door with a lead pipe. After another scene with Lucy and Amy, we see the remaining DEBS crouching down as the spikes come down and you see Max with an even longer lead pipe. Where did they get a lead pipe, much less two of them in a bank vault? See more »

Quotes

Scud: Just promise me you'll be open.

Laughs, Guns, and Sex appeal
26 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

DEBS is an entertaining, charming flick that does not try to to do too much more than put a smile on the audiences faces. It is hard to imagine how it can go wrong: beautiful young women, guns, and consistent jokes. Jordanna Brewster does a nice job of bringing a great deal of sizzling sexuality to the character of Lucy Diamond. Likewise, Sarah Foster, Devon Aoki, and Meagan Good are equally sensual and fun to watch. Jill Ritchie is terrific as the airhead who is striving vigorously to earn her stripes. While Jimmi Simpson displays strong comedic timing which adds to the diverting and catchy feel of the movie. Kudos to Angela Robinson and the cast for bringing the proper energy and creativeness to the this flick.
