"White Chicks" Review

A little brotherly love

Let me start by saying if you are going to see a movie with the intentions of being drawn up in an extensive plot with substantial depth that keeps you on the edge of your seat... this is not the movie for you, but if you would like to go see a movie that is a mindless laugh out loud gut buster, this is probably your ticket.

From the beginning of the movie the antics start and never stop, both Marlon and Shawn Wayans have played better parts and Keenan Ivory Wayans has directed better films but for what it is, they do a good job. Playing two FBI agents, Marcus and Kevin Copeland who incur the wrath of their boss after they have a drug bust go the wrong way. Barely hanging on to their jobs, they accidentally volunteer to protect socialite sisters Brittany and Tiffany Wilson (Maitland Ward and Anne Dudek) from being kidnapped, but after nearly killing the girls on their way to the Hamptons, the guys decide to dress up as the dim witted yet obnoxious girls and uncover the details of the kidnapping plot on their own terms.

They meet the sisters for the first time

Defying all odds, they proceed to fool the Wilson sisters' three best friends, the girls' chief rival (Jaime King as the villainous Heather Vandergeld), their family friends and enemies, society reporters and all the police assigned to the ball (including the Copelands' two FBI rivals).

I have noticed that a lot of people have not had many good things to say about this movie, I think other wise. Why it will not be up for an Oscar it is definitely not the worst movie to come along so far this decade or even this year. Although there are many subplots that really never pan out into anything they are a sidebar to the movie that is funny as well
 

Playing ball on the beach

While a lot of people tend think this is just a mindless romp for 90 minutes, I think that is just what it's meant to be. There is no real deep plot here to follow, it is just a movie to go enjoy and laugh at.
