White Chicks Reviews

June 24, 2006
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.
June 29, 2004
A plotless romp of Manolo wobbling, 'Omigod!' yipping, and broadly comic attempts to conceal that unsquashable manly lust and slangin' machismo.
June 28, 2004
[I]t's the worst movie of the year.
June 25, 2004
Banshee-howlingly awful.
June 25, 2004
A tawdry excuse for a movie, but it has a handful of shameless giggles.

June 25, 2004
The film feels long when it should be brisk, and it's bloated with stretches of hot, dead air.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 24, 2004
Crude yet good-natured comedy.
June 23, 2004
It's not what the Wayans brothers do, it's how they do it. They do it funny.
June 23, 2004
Scores more hits than misses.
June 23, 2004
As with every other genre, there's a right way and a wrong way to handle dude-lawman comedies. Chicks does it right a lot of the time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 23, 2004
White Chicks has more laughs than it deserves, but also a story that is just plain lazy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 23, 2004
An early candidate for worst movie of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
June 23, 2004
Much of what passes for humor in White Chicks derives from such charming plot devices as the lactose intolerance of one of the brothers.

Men learning about the female experience by dressing as women is a nice sentiment, but Tootsie had that covered two decades ago. White Chicks should have tried for more.

June 23, 2004
The film's saccharine ending is something of a letdown as the guys' time in high heels teaches them sensitivity and brings them true love. But for most of its raucous run, White Chicks has soul.

Moronic.

White Chicks feels more like an idea for a TV sketch that would have been much fresher had it been inflated into a movie in the '90s.

Even though they go preachy in the end, these chicks with quips deliver scattered bouts of hilarity.
June 23, 2004
If you want to laugh at cartoonishly shallow rich girls, you'd be much better off staying in to watch the new season of The Simple Life -- for free.

June 23, 2004
The movie is much more interested in the flatulence gags it can wring out of lactose intolerance than lampooning social intolerance.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 23, 2004
White Chicks is tedious and stupid, awkward and juvenile. That it makes not a lick of sense is the least of its problems.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 23, 2004
Even if it lingers a bit too long, White Chicks represents a solid accomplishment for the crowd-pleasing Wayans brothers.

June 23, 2004
The premise veers wildly from its fertile setup, thanks to acting that isn't broad so much as grotesque, humor that's isn't smart so much as witlessly vulgar, and preposterous plotting that insults the intelligence.

A succession of thin sketches that add up to Some Like It Warmed Over.

Derivative, crude and so predictable it hurts.

June 23, 2004
A moronic version of better gender-bending films.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 23, 2004
Had White Chicks been funnier, smarter, there might have been some subversive value in seeing what the Wayans made of the absurd social rituals of white elites.
June 23, 2004
If a festival of flatulence is your idea of fun, you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 23, 2004
Despite the best-paid efforts of six writers, including all three Wayanses, I couldn't suspend disbelief for a microsecond.

June 23, 2004
A film so dreary and conventional that it took an act of the will to keep me in the theater.

June 23, 2004
The satire may be broad, but it can be wickedly funny at times.

The Wayans brothers' easy charisma and charming good nature make up for a lot of shortcomings.

June 23, 2004
A series of skits clumsily assembled into a sometimes unintelligible narrative.

Most movies require some suspension of disbelief. But White Chicks ... requires something more radical than that. A full frontal lobotomy might be a good place to start.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 23, 2004
If White Chicks isn't quite up to Some Like It Hot or Tootsie standards (and it's not), it may be because the Wayanses, who also wrote the script, never find a story to support a scattershot collection of jokes.

Director Keenen Ivory Wayans and his co-conspirators -- his brothers, co-writers and stars Shawn and Marlon -- along with a swarm of co-writers and co-producers throw everything at the screen to see what sticks. A fair amount does.
