White Chicks (2004) Poster



The family name "Vandergeld" is Dutch, and translates to "of the money."
"The Miltons" was originally intended to be a comical remake of Gone with the Wind (1939) in modern day Beverly Hills. After many script revisions, the story settled and became White Chicks (2004).
The original title was the "The Miltons," sounding more like the Hiltons, which they spoofed.
Terry Crews's character, Lattrell Spencer, mentions he loves the song "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton, as he picks up Marcus Copeland (played by Marlon Wayans) disguised as one of the Wilson sisters, when Lattrell picks him up on the date and Marcus plays his car radio. In real life, Terry Crews actually does love that song.
Terry Crews's line, "Oh no, my brother, you gotta get your own" (spoken to Shawn Wayans when Shawn is pretending to be a parking valet), is taken from a record commercial that used to air frequently on BET (Black Entertainment Television) during the 1980s.
When the Wilson sisters get out of the airplane, the song playing is a spoof of "Miss Hilton," a song recorded by The Penfifteen Club for The Simple Life (2003-2007), Paris Hilton's hit reality show.
The joke about the breast milk into powder came straight from something Rickey Smiley said on BET's ComicView in 1999.
Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Lochlyn Munro last appeared together in Scary Movie (2000). They would also appear together again in the movie Little Man (2006).
The Van Der Geld Family auction charity is titled S.N.O.B., standing for "Southampton Nuclear Opposition Benefit."
When the brothers go to pick up the Wilson sisters at the airport, the outside shot of the airport is actually Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans previously co-wrote and starred in Scary Movie 2 (2001), which parodied The Exorcist (1973). Jennifer Carpenter, who played Lisa in this movie, also starred in The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005).
At the charity ball at The Royal Hamptons Hotel, a sign is displayed above the stage for the Southampton Nuclear Opposition Benefit. The first letters of the words spell the word "SNOB," probably referring to the many wealthy people who live or holiday in the Hamptons.

Gomez and Harper refer to the Copeland's as the Dynamic Duo, Baskin and Robbin, in one scene, an obvious play on Batman and Robin. Marlon Wayans was slated to play Robin in Batman Returns (1992), but was cut due to script rewrites.
