Crude yet good-natured comedy.
Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly, 2004-06-24
It's not what the Wayans brothers do, it's how they do it. They do it funny.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, 2004-06-23
Scores more hits than misses.
David Rooney, Variety, 2004-06-23
As with every other genre, there's a right way and a wrong way to handle dude-lawman comedies. Chicks does it right a lot of the time.
Mike Clark, USA Today, 2004-06-23
The film's saccharine ending is something of a letdown as the guys' time in high heels teaches them sensitivity and brings them true love. But for most of its raucous run, White Chicks has soul.
David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2004-06-23
Even though they go preachy in the end, these chicks with quips deliver scattered bouts of hilarity.
Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger, 2004-06-23
Most gags are as weak as they are derivative, offering little incentive to suspend one's disbelief, and as for the gender politics, well... you can only imagine.
Amy Simmons, Time Out, 2006-06-24
A plotless romp of Manolo wobbling, 'Omigod!' yipping, and broadly comic attempts to conceal that unsquashable manly lust and slangin' machismo.
Laura Sinagra, Village Voice, 2004-06-29
[I]t's the worst movie of the year.
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper, 2004-06-28
A tawdry excuse for a movie, but it has a handful of shameless giggles.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 2004-06-25
The film feels long when it should be brisk, and it's bloated with stretches of hot, dead air.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, 2004-06-25
White Chicks has more laughs than it deserves, but also a story that is just plain lazy.
Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2004-06-23
An early candidate for worst movie of the year.
Erik Lundegaard, Seattle Times, 2004-06-23
Much of what passes for humor in White Chicks derives from such charming plot devices as the lactose intolerance of one of the brothers.
Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, 2004-06-23
Men learning about the female experience by dressing as women is a nice sentiment, but Tootsie had that covered two decades ago. White Chicks should have tried for more.
Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, 2004-06-23
Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, 2004-06-23
White Chicks feels more like an idea for a TV sketch that would have been much fresher had it been inflated into a movie in the '90s.
Jan Stuart, Newsday, 2004-06-23
If you want to laugh at cartoonishly shallow rich girls, you'd be much better off staying in to watch the new season of The Simple Life -- for free.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2004-06-23
