The reboot of the 1970s television series has Diaz costarring with Drew Barrymore, right, and Lucy Liu as butt-kicking female detectives whose gadgets and gab keep the action-comedy both male- and female-friendly. Diaz's Natalie Cook is the leggy blond in an elite crime-fighting unit backed by an anonymous millionaire. She shows off her gams and martial arts skills as the leader of the trio. The box-office success of the film had Columbia Pictures order the 2003 sequel "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle," and the women also won a Blockbuster Entertainment Award for action team.
