When Khalid (Eugene Byrd) moves to town, the boys convince their new black friend to take them to Chicago and hook them up with everything ghetto. The comedy features cameos and music by Snoop Dog, Fat Joe, Dead Prez, Slick Rick and Mic.

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Many scenes of confrontation play like heavy-handed, uncomfortably forced improv.

A one-joke film in desperate denial and a terrible vehicle for Hoch.

...a woefully unfunny rap-oriented satire that's about as amusing as a carjacking...[a] tired and baseless culture comedy

Whiteboys is almost as short on substance as its poseur protagonists

Audience Reviews for Whiteboyz

Bottle Rocket meets Malibu's Most Wanted. You'd think it would be better, but it wasn't. To be honest, though, I just couldn't look away. Biggest takeaway for me? Mark Webber can rap.

Great movie to watch on a Saturday night, I hate watching this movie on Sunday though. Just makes me feel bad for some reason. Anyway the rap video with Snoop Dogg is pretty sweet, and also the part when they go to the projects, that's my fav part of the movie.

Strikes a great balance between comedy and drama. While funny, or shocking on the surface, it is also sad and serious underneath. Hoch's performance brings meaning to the absurd.
