This review is from: White Chicks (PG-13 Rated Edition) (DVD)
The premise of White Chicks is great. Two F.B.I. agents whose jobs are on the line go undercover (without their boss's knowledge!!) as wealthy, blonde debutantes. The agents hope to thwart a kidnapping attempt on the girls. The agents hang out in the Hamptons, turning the youth scene upside down and ensuring the scene will never be the same. Of the agents is single, the other married. The single one pursues a pretty reporter, while the married one's wife is hot on his trail, convinced he is cheating on her.
The Wayans are at their very best while portraying the girls. They have the accents and mannerisms down pat, and one of them has the most hilarious laugh. I love how the "girls" form genuine friendships with some of the non-snooty Hampton girls. They even teach a rich girl to value herself as more than a booty call and stop being a doormat for this worthless rich guy. Out of makeup, the brothers are wooden and poor actors, all dialouge sounding scripted and rehearsed with no real feeling. When emotional scenes come on, this horrible canned music comes on that is totally out of place and really makes those scenes stink!!!
I love slapstick, but about 30% of the jokes were so vulgar they were insufferable to sit through. These jokes include talking about doing Pam Anderson when she has a yeast infection, a long farting gag, and another farting gag, a panty-smelling F.B.I. agent, and date rape drugs causing men to bed each other.
Terry Crews was so uninhibited and delightful as the black guy who falls in love with one of the white girls. The more she rebuffs him, the more intrigued he gets. There is a lot of priceless comedy here. Definitely worth seeing!
