Is 20 years enough for this ah-mazing, overlooked film to be granted cult status? Why yes it is! Come decide for yourself! This fun, lesbian spy school story will serve as inspiration to make “A Little Respect” by Erasure your next karaoke song.
2004. Directed by Angela Robinson. 91 minutes.
There is a secret test hidden within the S.A.T. designed to identify students who can lie, cheat, fight, and kill. High scorers are recruited by a secret government agency and trained to become members of the nation’s most elite paramilitary group: the D.E.B.S.
To the outside world, the D.E.B.S. look like picture-perfect, plaid-skirted, well-schooled young women. But really they are our nation’s first line of defense. Their arch enemy? Lucy in the Sky, a sexy, diamond-bejeweled bank robber so evil that no crime fighter has faced her and lived to tell the tale—until the D.E.B.S. are ordered to take her down. Amy, the poster girl D.E.B., allows Lucy to capture her, but instead of killing Amy, Lucy asks her out on a date. The D.E.B.S. mount a rescue mission, unaware that Amy is having an illicit affair with Lucy and has staged her own kidnapping so they can be together.
