You know what you're letting yourself in for, when you pick up the film and read its title. But the responsibility for creating such a terribly poor film lies solely with the makers.
'White Chicks' stars comedian brothers Marlon and Shawn Wayans, as two FBI agents, who in order to save their jobs dress up as women on a kidnapper's list. Somehow casting a spell over everyone they meet, who all seem to suspend all of their disbelief, they fool their bosses and real life friends of the women they are impersonating and try and solve the case.
At least, that's what happens occasionally. The story jolts from one random gag to another, with no real connecting threads to actually keep the film together. This isn't helped by the gags themselves, in total one, that two black men are dressed as two white women.
Once the initial titters of the stunt have worn off, you're left with a ninety minute wander through no man's land, along with two very alarmingly scary 'white chick' costumes. The only thing the film does succeed at is pushing racist undertones to the very surface, managing to insult many, many people.
There are the odd laughable moment, although most of that is in pity for the cast and crew. However, watching such a shockingly terrible film does make you appreciate good pieces of cinema so much more. Worst film of 2004, almost definitely. Where would it sit in the worst films of all time? Very near the top. Or at least it most certainly should. A despicable piece of film-making.
