1 hr. 45 min. After messing up a major drug bust in New York City, two African American FBI agents (who are also brothers), Marcus and Kevin Copeland (Shawn and Marlon Wayans), try to impress their boss by volunteering to protect the Wilton Sisters, Tiffany (Dudek) and Brittany (Ward), the heiresses of a hotel empire, from a kidnapping scheme during a short trip from JFK to the Hamptons. Deciding to change the strategy drastically, the brothers use themselves as bait, wearing lots of pale makeup and dresses to pass as the Wilton sisters, while the real sisters are hidden away, safe from harm. Now, the agents just have to convince the world (including their coworkers who are now protecting *them* and the Wiltons' friends and family) that they're actually young, rich, white heiresses.
When White Chicks was first released in theaters, I vowed
never see it. I thought it looked awful and extremely unfunny, and I
that I would absolutely hate it. My taste in movies rarely allows me
enjoy movies that are stupid funny. I hated Dude, Whereís My Car?,
Dumber, and American Pie to name a few. Therefore, I knew that this
also fall into that category. However, my vow to never see White
broken when I was able to grab a copy for free from a friend. I have
that I wish I wouldnít have done that. I am now missing an hour and a
of my life that I can never have back.
White Chicks is the story of two FBI agents that are the laughing
the agency. After screwing up an undercover operation, the two agents
(Marlon and Shawn Wayans) are assigned to pickup two rich girls that
been threatened to be kidnapped. While the agents are bringing the
their destination, there is an accident and the agents are forced to
the identity of the girls to try to capture the kidnapper.
Everything in this movie is forced. It seems like everyone involved
movie is trying to make sure that the audience believes what is
For me, this makes the movie much more unbelievable. The fact that two
black men are able to fool people into thinking they are two spoiled
girls is just stupid. This seemed to be a movie full of stereotypes of
few different groups of people in society, and the black men tried to
up the stereotype of the spoiled white girl.
I giggled once during this entire movie, and that was close to the
The part I laughed at wasnít even that funny, but since I hadnít
almost an hour and a half I felt that I needed to at least once during
movie. I might be biased because I donít like most stupid funny movies
I said earlier, but Iíve talked to many people who didnít find it very
either. Most of the movie consists of crude humor, fart jokes for
I like movies that make me think, not movies like this that will make
feel dumber for watching.
I imagine many teenagers will like this movie. High school teens are
target audiences for this movie, and I surely hope that most of them
grow out of liking this movie genre. I donít want to subject myself to
anymore movies of this type. I really donít recommend this movie at
But if you like stupid funny movies, you might like it.
