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.
This is a movie I've seen several times in my life, but never when I had a letterboxd account in order to review it. I stayed at my friend's apartment for 9 days over the 4th of July weekend, and my boyfriend came to visit while I was there. He spent 2 years in Brazil, and can't sit still through most movies, so he's very, very uneducated in the way of most movies and TV shows (He's just now watching Game of Thrones). This movie, however, was toward the top of the list of movies I wanted him to see. This movie was a part of my childhood, honestly. I consider it a classic. So we watched it as soon…
It has Terry Crews and two hundred screenwriters.
This has some of the best ridiculously cheesy but still amazing early 00's songs in it
Part of A Film A Day
Terry Crews is the best part of this movie!
I remember when I liked the Wayans Brothers. Granted, it was their sitcom. 20 minutes opposed to 2 hours of them, I prefer. This movie is obviously horrible. I didn't laugh until literally 27 minutes in. And that's because we're introduced to Terry Crewes' character(BTW Crewes is the best NFL player turned Actor). He's by far the shining star of this otherwise completely offensive, sexist, and honestly racist movie. Even Crewes is a racist in this by the end. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy watching it though. It's an interesting failure. Bring on the remake.
Extremely funny and entertaining.
I really did not care for this film whatsoever. I think I spent half the time just sitting there pondering how pathetic their girl costumes and masks looked.
