Watch On
  1. A tawdry excuse for a movie, but it has a handful of shameless giggles.
  2. For a film that uses race, class and sexual stereotypes as the starting point, this is disappointingly skin deep.
  3. 50
    The film feels long when it should be brisk, and it's bloated with stretches of hot, dead air. The racial kitsch goes nowhere.
  4. 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.
  5. 50
    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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. But it's not what the Wayans brothers do, it's how they do it. They do it funny.
  9. 50
    Wisely, the filmmakers don't try to reform the real rich-bitch divas -- some cultural icons are beyond redemption.
  10. 40
    Stupidity has worked for the Wayans brothers in the past, but White Chicks will likely test the patience of even their most loyal fans.
  11. 40
    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.

    Dreadful, disgusting, witless, and all in all unfunny.
