today during class something happened. My friend got there late and so missed the beginning of it so, once she…
They're going deep undercover.
Two FBI agent brothers, Marcus and Kevin Copeland, accidentally foil a drug bust. As punishment, they are forced to escort a pair of socialites to the Hamptons, where they're going to be used as bait for a kidnapper. But when the girls realize the FBI's plan, they refuse to go. Left without options, Marcus and Kevin decide to pose as the sisters, transforming themselves from African-American men into a pair of blonde, white women.
This is one I’d always avoided for the simple reason that it looks like an absolute stinking turd of a comedy but as my life motto is ‘you can’t judge a film until you’ve seen it’ I decided it was time to endure all that White Chicks had to offer.
I’ve always kind of liked the concept behind this movie, possibly because I enjoyed watching Mrs. Doubtfire so much as a kid, but I guess I was hoping for more of an exploration of the ‘I can’t move my face’ generation than a standard Wayans family gone wild type deal. White Chicks never puts its position to good use. It’s a badly acted, painfully unfunny, and downright creepy movie that…
Keenen Ivory Wayans' "White Chicks" is a watchable but instantly forgettable film that combines physical comedy, gross-out raunch, and fish-out-of-water shenanigans to mildly successful effect. The kind of film that makes an audience chuckle in spite of its intentions otherwise, "White Chicks" misses opportunities to make itself interesting, instead settling on low-wattage, lowest common denominator comic filmmaking.
Following two African-American FBI agents who go undercover, masquerading as the titular white women, the story attempts to find comedy capital in its guys-pretending-to-be-girls schtick. That schtick is cheap, but it generates some fun. It could also generate some interesting commentary about race and gender; the narrative, however, does not have those goals.
Wayans directs Shawn and Marlon Wayans in the led roles,…
Yes, it's awful, but it also has Terry Crews at his best.
Get this jigaboo away from me.
So stupid that it is actually funny in places. But only in certain places.
In fact it is like the old programmes we watched as kids when the characters (2 black blokes) rather than just telling the truth end up getting into stupider and stupider scenarios(oh yeah whilst dressed as 2 white girls). And they are FBI agents, makes perfect sense.
Hasta la vista Schwarzenegro.
Big guilty pleasure of mine. It's stupid and crude, but it's funny as hell. Hilarious throughout. Terry Crews steals the show and provides some priceless comedic gold. Crews in this film alone is worth watching this at least once.
All I kept thinking while watching this is "Now I know why I never rewatched this since it first came out". And I also kept wondering how Jennifer Carpenter went from this to her remarkable role on Dexter.
The only thing keeping me from giving this the lowest rating is Terry Crews and the few moments he made me chuckle.
You know the funny thing is I think the basic story could have been good
Clearly one of the least convincing drag performances ever put to film in an otherwise unfunny romp from Shawn and Marlon Wayans, despite containing a few hilarious moments from Terry Crews.
This is my guilty pleasure.
So bad it's good??
It is not meant to be politically correct you know. Terry Crews is one of the best parts of the film.
Look king kong. Why don't you take you and your 1980 pick-up lines, climb all the way up to the top of the empire state building, beat on your big old monkey chest and then jump off? Excuse me.
I was worried I might like this because I chuckled a few times at the beginning (like when they sing in the car or the fact that the initials for the organisation that hosts the party is S.N.O.B) but thankfully it got nice and turdy again shortly after. *sigh of relief because I don't have to give this crap more than one star*
There are three moment where the music becomes sad and it's meant to be deep --> cringe-inducing. Also contains fart jokes, gay joke, sex joke, puke joke and poop joke. The checklist from hell is complete.
Jennifer Carpenter wants to kill herself, you can see it in her eyes. I feel her pain. We are all Jennifer Carpenter.
Been avoiding this for years assuming it'd be super crass, insensitive to all races etc, etc. Turns out it's just plain funny.
Completely uses the premise to set up increasingly tenuous sketch situations, each funnier than the last.
There are moments where the movie is actually funny, but most of the time it isn't the Wayans brothers. Hard to believe they are actually famous actors.
