White Chicks

Comedy . Crime

Two FBI agent brothers, Marcus and Kevin Copeland, accidentally foil a drug bust.

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.

    What we get is a tweaked variation on the litany of men-disguised-as-women comedies: "Some Like It Hot" and "Tootsie," just for starters. Obviously, this sassy farce sounds recycled and certainly appears to be in the coming attraction. Yet it's also funnier than expected in ways you wouldn't expect.

  • Kirk Honeycutt

    This is the kind of film that will leave many audience members groaning with laughter -- and others simply groaning. It's skit/situation comedy that exploits stereotypes with a vengeance and knows no shame in borrowing from much better movies ranging from "Some Like It Hot" to "Tootsie."

  • Laura Sinagra

    Harmless slapstick fun.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    Even if it lingers a bit too long, White Chicks represents a solid accomplishment for the crowd-pleasing Wayans brothers.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Rooney

    As lowbrow comedies go, it pretty much delivers.

    Variety Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    Doesn't make a lick of sense, and its borderline racism and sexism will offend plenty of people. But comedy is all salesmanship, and these guys sold me; their giddy nonchalance reminds me of kids competing to crack each other up at bedtime after mom has given them Pepsi with dinner.

  • David Hiltbrand

    The first family of black comedy goes at this bawdy burlesque with a broad brush. They get their laughs, but not without a lot of unsightly spillage.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A tawdry excuse for a movie, but it has a handful of shameless giggles.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    They resort too often to infantile flatulence jokes and fairly obvious gags about errant G-strings, with the anorexic plot culminating in the brothers having - yawn - learned to respect women's feelings.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carla Meyer

    In White Chicks, the gross-out humor is minimal, no character comes off too badly and lessons are learned. Oh Wayanses, where are thy teeth?

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The film feels long when it should be brisk, and it's bloated with stretches of hot, dead air. The racial kitsch goes nowhere.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    White Chicks could and should be a much more mischievous movie. A half-dozen writers have managed to create a succession of thin sketches that add up to "Some Like It Warmed Over," with a touch of stink.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    When Crews is onscreen, White Chicks is a film that fears nothing and no one. When he's not, it's a film too tentative and soft-hearted to scale the farcical heights to which it aspires.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    For a film that uses race, class and sexual stereotypes as the starting point, this is disappointingly skin deep.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Chuck Wilson

    Wisely, the filmmakers don't try to reform the real rich-bitch divas -- some cultural icons are beyond redemption.

  • Stephen Hunter

    But it's not what the Wayans brothers do, it's how they do it. They do it funny.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    The mere sight of strapping men in micro-mini skirts suffering the indignities of thong underwear, catcalls and pushy pick-up artists is good for a couple of lowbrow laughs, but they're buried pretty deep in dreck.

    Bottom line, the white chicks scare me. Seriously. They’re freaky looking. They are the stuff of nightmares.

    Be warned - Damon isn't in this one.

  • Keith Phipps

    Stupidity has worked for the Wayans brothers in the past, but White Chicks will likely test the patience of even their most loyal fans.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Here is a film so dreary and conventional that it took an act of the will to keep me in the theater.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Some film premises are so outlandish, so thinly worked out and so deep-down ridiculous that they wind up sinking the show -- and White Chicks collapses under a real doozy.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    We're bombarded by witless racial clichés, stale sexism and homophobia and enthusiastic celebrations of extreme flatulence.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    Despite the attempts of the Academy Award-winning makeup artist behind Mrs. Doubtfire, these doubtful misfires can't pass as white or as chicks.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    The script, written by the three brothers, is ludicrous and incomprehensible, and plays cat-and-mouse games with what could have been some deeply funny comments on race, wealth, and, in one inspired changing-room scene, eating disorders.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Dave Kehr

    Credibility, of course, wouldn't matter if the gags were good enough, which they are not. The film quickly falls back on the gross-out jokes that have made recent American comedies such a challenge to the digestive tract.

  • Desson Thomson

    Laugh? I thought I'd never start.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Like its eponymous subject, it succeeds only in being shallow and crass and not very much fun to be around.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Worthless, tasteless and unfunny.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    It's such a dumb movie, it's hard to believe it wasn't an SNL sketch first.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Instead of satire, we're treated to diarrhea jokes, dogs dangled from the windows of speeding SUVs and tasteless sobriquets bestowed upon anyone who looks vaguely ethnic.
