Two ambitious but unlucky FBI agents go deep undercover as female, high society debutantes in the exclusive Hamptons resort to investigate a kidnapping ring. But as they strut their way into the biggest social event of the year they find that breaking into high society scene is a lot tougher than it looks.
PROFANITY: 1 GD, 4 S-words, many milder ones. SEX/NUDITY: Some crude sexual references. No nudity or sexual activity. VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some drinking and drunkenness. ACTION: None COMEDY: VERY FUNNY! Especially for those who enjoy crude humor.

Roger EbertFull Review Below Average Various combinations of the Wayans family have produced a lot of cutting-edge comedy, but 'White Chicks' uses the broad side of the knife. Here is a film so dreary and conventional that it took an act of the will to keep me in the theater.
USA TodayFull Review Good Crudely sassy and — you know what? — pretty funny, ... The movie is so over the top that just about anything goes.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 42 moviegoer opinions. As could be expected, the teen and twentysomething crowd, both male and female, LOVED "WHITE CHICKS"! Every one of them rated it either "Fantastic" or "Excellent," which is great.
Adults were less impressed, but most still enjoyed this movie very much. About half the adult males rated it "Good," which is a little low but certainly not bad considering the type of movie it is (silly/stupid/gross). The adult ladies actually enjoyed it slightly more than the guys.
For the younger crowd that enjoys this type of silly movie I highly recommend "White Chicks." If you're an adult and this looks like a movie you might enjoy then I recommend seeing it. I'm confident that most of you will enjoy it, at least to some degree.
Despite their best efforts, agents Marcus and Kevin Copeland (Marlon and Shawn Wayans) have worked their way down to the bottom of the FBI food chain. Their most recent bust was a failure and they are hanging on to their jobs by a thread. When a plot to kidnap spoiled socialite sisters Brittany and Tiffany Wilson (Maitland Ward and Anne Dudek) is uncovered, the big case is given to Marcus and Kevin's rivals Vincent Gomez (Eddie Velez) and Jake Harper (Lochlyn Munro). To add to their humiliation, Kevin and Marcus are handed a thankless menial task — to escort the Gucci-clad spoiled brats safely from the airport to their hotel in the Hamptons. Even they can't get that one wrong. Right?
When Tiffany's pampered pooch, Baby, causes a traffic mishap, a fight ensues and the two women are disfigured — well, if you call a fat lip and a cut nose disfigurement, which to these looks-obsessed socialites it certainly is. The heiresses refuse to show their less than perfect faces at the important society weekend fearing they could lose the highly coveted cover of Hamptons Magazine to their archrivals Heather and Megan Vandergeld (Jaime King and Brittany Daniel).
Faced with the prospect of unemployment, Kevin hatches a plan: He and Marcus will go undercover as the demanding divas and, in the process, try to snare the kidnappers and restore their reputations. With the real Wilson girls safely ensconced in a luxury New York hotel, Marcus and Kevin assume their identities and spring their most unlikely sister act on the unsuspecting crème de la crème of Hamptons society, with hilarious results.
