White Chicks is a 2004 comedy film starring Shawn and Marlon Wayans as two FBI agents who need to go deep, deep undercover. Kevin (Shawn) and Marcus (Marlon) Copeland always seem to mess up their investigations. When they capture ice cream delivery guys, mistaking them for criminals who sell drugs using ice cream sales as a cover, they let the real bad guys get away, their boss gives them one last chance on a special assignments. The brothers are sent to protect wealthy Brittany and Tiffany Wilson (Maitland Ward and Anne Dudek) from kidnappers who have been targeting heiresses. When they arrive at the heiresses hotel, the girls refuse to go out in public because a car accident has left them with extremely minor cuts, leaving the guys to come up with the idea to pose as the Wilson sisters. In their disguises, Kevin and Marcus are left to become 'two of the girls' with the Wilsons best friends Karen (Busy Phillips), Tori (Jessica Cauffiel), and Lisa (Jennifer Carpenter), and against their rivals, Megan and Heather Vandegeld (Brittany Daniel and Jaime King). In addition to trying to squeeze their large man-bodies into clothes for skinny girls, avoiding the advances of horny men, they must try to nurture their relationships with women despite their disguises. Marcus's wife Gina gets suspicious when she hears female voices on the phone with him, and Kevin is trying to get on the good side of reporter Denise Porter, which he finds hard to do romantically while he's dressed as a white chick.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

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

  • 70

    Variety David Rooney

    As lowbrow comedies go, it pretty much delivers.

  • 30

    The New York Times 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...
