This movie is simply funny, it aims to make you laugh and no more. Anyone who dissect the plot and put the acting and screenplay of this film under a microscope is missing the entire point of this movie.This is a comedy, not a documentary or an historical saga, this is plane humor, dumb with a bit of a slapstick taste... The entire situation is fictional of course and that's what so funny about it. I've read some comment about this movie here and the people who wrote these comment are way off, talking like those big-shot movie critics. This is a fun movie to watch with a <more>
"stupid" yet hilarious story, simple comedy and a lot of what some people call "toilet humor" which is always funny - it's nothing more than pure entertainment and it leaves you with a smile on your face which is never a bad thing, right? I've seen this movie 5 times and I still laugh my heart out! :-D
Americans are some of the most uptight folks on the planet. To the folks who think this movie is anything but funny, well you are hopeless.PC in your case means pitifully cramped. Humor, like beauty, is unique to each person. But the Wayans seem to be able to dish out equal portions of playful jabs and tongue-in-cheek which appeals to me.A look at the Hilton sisters and their lifestyle gives more than enough fodder to make something really funny, and it is in this movie.If you want intellectualism, go elsewhere. This is just smartly funny.
A terrible and at the same time hilarious film (by don_key)
I have seen the Unrated version on DVD together with my family.I was very much suspicious about this movie from the moment when I saw the DVD cover and really wanted to push stop button after the first 5 minutes of the film, especially after seeing absolutely silly makeup : Lucky for me, others wanted to continue watching. What followed was 1 1/2 hours of great comedy, some scenes are so hilarious that even after seeing them many times I still laugh again when seeing them.In some way this movie is identical to Soul Plane by being an underdog which is blamed to be racist and full with low <more>
level jokes. Perhaps it is, but I still find it very funny.10/10 Partly because of the IMHO unjustified low total rating this movie has
Great Writing, Great Acting, Great White Chicks!!! (by jtindahouse)
This comedy is magnificent and is entertaining and hilarious all the way through. One of the best things about the film is that they didn't use the same jokes that every other comedy movie based on someone dressing up as someone else and pretending to be them. Also the work that went into making Shawn and Marlon Wayans look so convincing as white chicks must have been massive because they looked brilliant. Frankie Faison was alright playing the chief and delivered a few clever scenes. Terry Crews was excellent as Latrell Spencer and was a good touch to the movie. Of course the stand outs <more>
were the Wayan brothers which any one could tell even just from the trailer of the movie. This performance almost stood up to their roles in Scary Movie 1 and 2 which is really really saying something. Lets hope they keep writing movies with Keenan Ivory Wayans who deserves as much credit, if not more, for the writing and starring in them as well because God knows they can act and act brilliantly. Great movie. The toilet humor was well done too.
Let me just say firstly the title of the movie was wrong. It obviously made people assume that the film was about the differences between black and white people. I would say about less than ten of the jokes, out of the film containing tens upon tens of funny lines, was about the racial differences.It was about men learning about what women go through in life. They get to experience different people that women encounter, such as strong overpowering men, rude devious women, fashion, shopping, waxes ouch! , etc.But instead of making you feel like you're being lectured, they make you laugh <more>
and learn instead.The Wayans are not making fun of white people, they're mocking people such as the Hiltons; the false life that people like them can lead; how money can hide people from reality and can lead to corruption.On the DVD, you can see for yourself what the white actresses have to say. That they enjoyed themselves, and love the concept. Who would join a cast who were making fun of your race? If the Wayans disliked white people so much, they would've gotten black actors/actresses and put them under make-up, instead of hiring white actors/actresses in the first place. Even the director states that this film is about the differences between men and women.Please give this film the same chance that you would give any other.P.S. Was Mrs. Doubtfire making fun of old people?
I must have an odd sense of humor but I bought his DVD after seeing it, and still laugh my head off when I watch it. I thought it was a great spoof as an undercover cop comedy. The Wayan brothers are terrific actors, in my opinion. I have seen MUCH worse! They have a great sense timing and I think are hilarious. Sure their make-up as the two rich twin white chicks is a little off, but that is excellent work to look "white", and act like those white rich chicks, given these two girls attitude and demeanor in the beginning of the film before the Wayans went undercover posing as <more>
them. "Latrel" was really great "Schwartzenegro.." ...At any rate, I loved Spaceballs too and many people didn't like that either. If you can imagine that the people in this movie really can't tell these chicks are imposters, which is pretty obvious , and have an odd sense of humor, then you'll love it.
It is one of my guilty pleasure movies (by ratatouillefan)
So I am not a fan of "homeboy" movies but every time I see this movie come on I have to watch it. I laugh myself silly every time. I cannot help it but the Wayans Brothers totally kill it with this one. It is so not about a plausible plot but about being extremely entertaining. With a great cast of characters. I definitely do not watch movies for hidden meanings, a significant message, or the artistry. I watch movies purely for entertainment and enjoyment and this one definitely fits the bill!For those critics who just want a meaningful just pass For those of you wanting pure laughs <more>
and entertainment!!! WATCH IT But why listen to me. make up your own mind.
I gotta say, this movie for me, is a classic. Even though it came out in 2004 i think it is a classic. The thing that in my opinion is even more funny than the witty lines is the facial expressions of the characters. They are hysterical. Trust me, they are hilarious. The only reason that i didn't give it a ten is because of the acting from two supporting actors. I think you would be able to determine them yourself. Overall an Awesome movie. A movie you can watch over and over again. I have and i know that you will want to too. Don't think about it, just do it you will not regret it.
Excellent - funniest film I have seen for a while hee hee (by orcadiansmeghead)
Wow - first off, I read the reviews on here just before sticking this one on, and was dismayed and shocked to see the amount of people slagging it off all for the exact same reasons too , and generally giving it the thumbs down.I get the impression that the white chicks make up the Wayans bros wear is disappointing to a lot of people because they aren't attractive enough to fancy. Have you guys read what you're writing on here and looked at yourselves? This film ain't real, and criticising the make up the guys were wearing cos you didn't think it was realistic enough is a bit <more>
daft, I think. It's only a story, a comedy and in my opinion a great film. No doubt the people who don't like this will also not like I'm Gonna Git You Sucka and Don't Be A Menace To South Central? two more cool films Or is it that people are afraid that if they say they like this film some lefty will say they are racist towards black people or some supremacist will say they are racist towards whites? Wow, I know a guy who said Dumb And Dumberer was racist cos the Chinese girl in it was called 'Ching Chong'?! Jeez.I laughed my socks off at this film and I don't care who knows it. It's funny. There's no point repeating the story, but I will repeat this bit which is reflected in a few places on this site - Latrell is the funniest character in this film and every time he appeared I was cracking up! You need to get this film to see his rendition of 'Thousand Miles' Ha ha. It's cool. Forget what people will call you, and watch it alone if you have to! It's only 4 quid on ebay!
