The girls trained with their martial arts master for three months, eight hours a day.
It would be physically impossible to open an exit door on a pressurized aircraft during flight unless the cabin was first depressurized.

High-spirited, infectious ridiculousness
Head-spinning collage of technically marvelous effects in theatrical
remake of cult late-'70s TV series. Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and
Lucy Lui are attractive, funny, resourceful, sexy and–most importantly
(and surprisingly) quite convincing as super-detectives. Their case
(involving rival software companies, a kidnapping, and the planned
assassination of boss Charlie) doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and
Bill Murray is out-of-it as confidante Bosley, but director McG's
modern-comic action is so lightning-fast and silky smooth you may be
having too much fun to notice. Some of the satire is actually rather
smart, and the girls are game for just about anything. **1/2 from ****
