White Chicks

1

White Chicks is the kind of movie the Wayans bros used to parody on their show In Living Color. Now they're the ones making limp comedies ripe for skewering.

With Shawn and Marlon Wayans looking ridiculous in their latex white-girl get-ups, there's no way to tell this story straight. But bizarrely, that's the method their older brother and director Keenen Ivory uses. What's more, the risible plot - which has FBI agents Marcus (Marlon) and Kevin (Shawn) impersonating a pair of heiresses in order to thwart a kidnap attempt - takes an age to set up.

From this point on, race relations are fired at with the same scattershot idiocy as the Scary Movie pictures. If you're the type who laughs 'til it hurts, White Chicks is a pain-free 109 minutes.

      If I could go any lower than 1, I would. This film doesn't even deserve any stars, because there was nothing special about it. It is a piece of unoriginal rubbish - I mean, I think disguising yourself as somebody you're not has been done a million times before. This is just taking it too far, plus they need to work on their prostethics, they're as fake as the film they're in. And, hey, even the plot is bad, simpletons and little kids could understand it. Not that they'd want to. I'd not watch this film again, because the only thing I was asking was "Where's the bathroom?". Not just to vomit all the junk I'd ingested, but to wash the filth out of my eyes. Seriously, this film wasn't even worth watching, in fact, it wasn't even worth being made - an extremely pathetic waste of effort from the Wayans brothers.
