White Chicks (2004)



Critic Consensus: Scattershot comedy that's silly and obvious.

Movie Info

When brothers and fellow FBI agents Marcus (Marlon Wayans) and Kevin Copeland (Shawn Wayans) accidentally ruin an otherwise painstakingly executed drug bust, getting back into the good graces of their boss becomes a high-priority assignment in itself. With this in mind, Marcus and Kevin take on a case far beneath their usual standards when they agree to escort socialite sisters Brittany (Maitland Ward) and Tiffany Wilton (Anne Dudek) from a private terminal at JFK Airport to their hotel room in the Hamptons. Once there, two considerably higher-ranking agents will take over the girls' protection. The extra security is no mere perk of wealth, however, as it appears that Brittany and Tiffany have been targeted by a serial kidnapper. The FBI hopes to apprehend the perpetrator by using the girls as bait, unbeknownst to them. The plan may have worked if it weren't for Kevin and Marcus, who manage to let the sisters in on the secret. Understandably, neither of them want any part in the process, so they force the brothers to come up with a radical solution: With the help of an FBI lab scientist, the very much African-American Kevin and Marcus will be transformed into two white women who could pass for Brittany and Tiffany. The agents must keep the charade up long enough to lure the kidnapper, but fooling everyone involved will be the job of their lives. Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans, White Chicks also features James King and Lochlyn Munro. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for White Chicks

All Critics (127) | Top Critics (37)

Most gags are as weak as they are derivative, offering little incentive to suspend one's disbelief, and as for the gender politics, well... you can only imagine.

Time Out
Top Critic

Predictable farce isn't very funny or original.

Full Review… | December 29, 2010
Common Sense Media

It's bad enough watching a dreadfully unfunny really awful comedy, but watching a very racist comedy makes it all the worse...

Full Review… | April 29, 2009
Cinema Crazed

Complements the awfulness of its protagonists' Caucasian camouflage with putrid bathroom humor, pitiable romance and brainless racial/social commentary.

Lessons of Darkness

Odds on you know what you're in for, so if you're prepared to shell out your reddies for it, you'll find it amicable enough.

Empire Magazine

Let's forget about the clunky plot and shallow characters. Let's forget about the racist undertones of the film. Bottom line, the white chicks scare me. Seriously. They're freaky looking. They are the stuff of nightmares.

Audience Reviews for White Chicks

This awful comedy is not only derivative and obvious (more than half of it is just a rehash of Some Like It Hot) but seems made to the same sort of retards who can't see through a ridiculous disguise that only makes the Wayans brothers look like hideous caricatures.

Carlos Magalhães

Super Reviewer

A Movie that explains whats wrong with white women today, 1/2 star. 7=11=2005

Funny. Offensive, but funny. Better than I'd have expected from the Wayans. Terry Crews is a comedic wunderkind. Props to Crews.
