There is no end to the Wayans family, it seems, as well as their perpetual presence on the screen in bad comedies.
In this banshee-howlingly awful caper, tiresomely drawn from a few dozen other bad cross-dressing films of the forgettable past, Marlon and Shawn Wayans (the untalented end of the family) are two disgraced FBI agents. Determined to show they have the right stuff, they volunteer to pose as doubles for two white, pampered heiresses, Brittany and Tiffany (Maitland Ward and Anne Dudek), who are in danger of being kidnapped. Cue the latex breasts, the blond wigs and both Wayans speaking in "knee-slapping" mall-princess falsetto.
Laugh? I thought I'd never start.
WHITE CHICKS (PG-13, 105 minutes) --Contains crude and sexual humor, obscenity and drug use. Area theaters.
