A group of teen secret agents known as D.E.B.S. (Discipline, Energy, Beauty, Strength), must save the world from vexing vixen Lucy Diamond. However, when one of the D.E.B.S. is captured by Lucy, she finds she’s falling in love with her.

U.S. RELEASE: March 25 2005, Nationwide • Rated: PG-13

THE COMMENTS:

ANGELA ROBINSON on the possible protest about the lesbian love story:
“I hope it provokes discussion, it’s a really fun movie with a really good heart, and there’s a semi-bizarre political climate out there. I was so naïve that when I wrote it I thought nobody would care, and that’s obviously not the case.”

SARA FOSTER:
“Angela really stressed to Jordana and me the importance of our relationship and of our chemistry. She was very clear about how she needed it to be real. The movie is over-the-top and it is campy, but with the actual relationship between my character and Jordana’s it was really important to her that we really take it seriously and make it real. Our love for each other is real.”

JORDANA BREWSTER on how she would feel about being a lesbian icon:
“I would love to be one. I want there to be a cult, underground, hardcore following for this film. I would be more than happy if people remember this film 10 years from now.”

ROBINSON on casting the movie:
“It was a great experience, and the response to the script was fantastic. All these actresses were dying to be in the movie. I was shocked because they weren’t going to get paid a lot of money. But I realized there are not a lot of great parts for young actresses to play. This had five good parts where they got to do action (scenes) and be funny.”

JILL RITCHIE:
“It was my first time using guns in a film, and it’s a little scary because you are told that it has blanks in it, but when you shoot it, it gives you the kickback. I guess it would have even if you were shooting a real bullet – it really jolts you, so for me it was a struggle.”

MEAGAN GOOD on the message of the movie:
“Follow your heart. A girl should be who she is, not just who she’s in love with, whether it be a girl or a villain, or whether it’s wanting to go to art school instead of being a part of the D.E.B.S. Just be honest and true to yourself. If your friends love you, they’ll wish you the best and want only what’s going to make you happy.”

FOSTER on a possible sequel:
“I think Angela has a script ready. Depending on how this movie does and how people receive it, I think a sequel could be possible. Not for awhile, but it’s something I’m sure we’d all be open to because we all had a lot of fun working on this movie and we all became friends. I think it was a positive experience for all of us.”
