Trivia

Overall nothing to be amazed at but it has its moments
31 October 2004 | by mbevierSee all my reviews

From the previews and my own idea of what the movie might be like, I was very hesitant to spend the time to even give this one a chance. That is, at least, a critical part of this movie. You must at least give it a chance. If you aren't willing to take a leap, then I doubt you will get much out of it...and even then it won't be a huge amount. Quickly from the outlandish premise, the characteristic differences of a rich white woman and black man are laid out heavily. This will form the foundation, one might think obviously, of the movie. Most of the movie for me was watched through a wince of pain as a train wreck unfolded before my eyes. Although, that is simply part of the fun and entertainment here. You know it is ridiculous, and thoughts of, 'Wow, how much worse could it be' seep in and you begin to enjoy it. If you are looking for shallow comedy, yes, you have found it...and there is nothing wrong with that.

I found the man playing Latrell to be a solid inspiration of humor. He put what may be the best performance into this movie and even saying that now surprises me. He was hilarious. The Wayans brothers do as well as anyone could hope to in their role, playing to the ridiculous situation well.

Another movie in a trend of superfluous comedy. White Chicks has its place here, and is worth seeing. After all, what price can you put on a laugh, even if its only one.
