White Chicks

White Chicks-2004, Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans, starring Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans, and Terry Crews
He says-  Two male, maverick FBI agents go deep undercover, disguised as air-headed twin sisters, to flush out a criminal.  They're black but the girls are white, and that's the central joke.  Logic aside (and it certainly is), this heavy-handed comedy is a fragile excuse for the Wayans brothers to do a series of broad, silly riffs, poking fun at stereotypical white people.  Unrated version runs 7 minutes longer.  2 stars

I say-  The joke got old quick.  You can't have a white person playing a black guy, because that would be racist.  Not a great movie by any stretch, funny in a couple places, but mainly terrible.  1 star
