White Chicks

After botching a drug bust, two black FBI agents find themselves consigned to babysitting a pair of empty-headed socialites -- who end up being the targets of kidnappers. To flush out the baddies, the men pose as the white party girls.

NYT Review
Most movies require some suspension of disbelief, but "White Chicks," a new comedy starring the brothers Marlon and Shawn Wayans as African-American F.B.I. agents who disguise themselves as dippy white socialites for a weekend in the Hamptons, requires something more radical. Read the review

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  full review
 
[I]t's the worst movie of the year.
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper  full review
 
Banshee-howlingly awful.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post  full review
 
A tawdry excuse for a movie, but it has a handful of shameless giggles.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
The film feels long when it should be brisk, and it's bloated with stretches of hot, dead air.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
 
It's not what the Wayans brothers do, it's how they do it. They do it funny.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post  full review
 
Scores more hits than misses.
David Rooney, Variety  full review
 
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  full review
 
White Chicks has more laughs than it deserves, but also a story that is just plain lazy.
Peter Howell, Toronto Star  full review
 
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
 
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  full review
 
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
 
Moronic.
Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel  full review
 
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  full review
 
Even though they go preachy in the end, these chicks with quips deliver scattered bouts of hilarity.
Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
 
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  full review
