Watch Out For Those White Chicks
I didn't like any of the Wayans movies, the 'Scary Movie' franchise being the worst but 'White Chicks' comes as quite a nice surprise. It's actually quite funny and has some laugh-out-loud moments. Keenan Ivory Wayans finally offers a film that's actually funny without heading too much towards the direction of horrendous stupidity. Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans are supported by a competent cast that includes Lochlyn Munro, Jaime King, John Heard, Anne Dudek, Busy Philipps and Frankie Faison. I find Marlon Wayans unbearably annoying in his other films but here he is quite likable and his character is more mature than the crap he played in other films. Shawn Wayans did show signs of a good actor in 'Requiem For A Dream' and here he does a decent job. Both actors are excellent as the white chicks. However, 'White Chicks' isn't without its share of flaws. The opening sequence makes you want to walk away from the movie. Some of the comedy just falls flat and some of the toiler humour is overdone. Yet, in spite of that the movie works as a brilliant comedy. I love the scenes where Marlon's character returns home after partying and he dozes off while his wife is whining, Latrell's lust for 'Brittany', 'Brittany' and 'Tiffany' wanting to listen to hip-hop in the car but their friends prefer something else... there are quite a few such moments that got me laughing out loud.
