White Chicks Reviews

White Chicks is tedious and stupid, awkward and juvenile. That it makes not a lick of sense is the least of its problems.
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.
June 23, 2004
A succession of thin sketches that add up to Some Like It Warmed Over.
June 23, 2004
Derivative, crude and so predictable it hurts.
June 23, 2004
A moronic version of better gender-bending films.
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.
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.
June 23, 2004
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.
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.
June 23, 2004
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.
June 22, 2004
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.
