So this is what happens on my days off, I have to watch movies like this.  This is what happens when you have two lesbians for roommates who happen to be dating each other who thinks movies like this are awesome.  Let’s start this review off by stating this is already one horrible movie.

White Chicks is made by the Wayans brothers, so you already know it is going to be kind of bad. White Chicks stars Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans as inept FBI agents. After botching up a routine drug bust, they are booted off a major kidnapping case. At a desperate attempt to be apart of the case, they are added on to babysitting duty for to possible kidnap victims. After a minor car crash the girls bust up their lip and nose, they throw a bitch fit and choose not to go to the Hamptons. What do the Wayans decide? Dress up in white face as white chicks and go to the Hamptons themselves. Not racist at all don’t you think?

This movie is ridiculous to the utmost level. I love, especially in this movie, how the African American actors can easily dress up in “white face” and make fun of Caucasians but “black-face” is completely frowned upon. I am not condoning it, just felt that it wasn’t necessarily fair. Anyways, this is not the place to talk about that. White Chicks is just a load of garbage,  It was very difficult to find something I liked about this film. The other actors tried very hard to do their best while the Wayans just jerk around and try to be funny. The only thing I enjoyed about White Chicks is the dancing/club scene. You can see it below:

Oh, and  also Terry Crews dancing.

The cons for White Chicks could go on and on. First off, the film is directed by and stars Wayans. That right there should have been a turn off the TV moment for me. Unfortunately I was writing another article and didn’t realize what they were watching. The rest of the cast play their roles quite well, but they are overshadowed by the idiotic and horrible acting of the Wayans. The stereotypes portrayed in White Chicks are ridiculous too, even if they are pretty accurate.

PROS:

  • Terry Crews
  • Club Scene

CONS:

  • Wayans.
  • Direction.
  • Overshadowed supporting cast.
  • Stereotypes.
  • White Face

SCORE: 3.0 / 10
