White Chicks takes it to socialite hotel heiresses harder than Shannen Doherty's ex-husband. Only this production's better lit. And not as funny. Keenan Ivory Wayans drums up more work for his kinfolk with a script about two FBI agents (Shawn and Marlon Wayans) who dress up as a pair of dippy, hotel heiress sisters—the Wilsons (very subtle, Keen)—to protect them from a potential kidnapping plot. After the initial shock of the disguises wears off (these men in drag look like white versions of the Williams sisters, only with smaller hands), misunderstandings yield varying degrees of laughs. See the guys fit in with the sisters' social circle by going shopping together, dancing together, and when all else fails, talking in "izzle"! The premise begins and ends with big black guys in high heels, so the jokes begin to fall flat soon after the third "You girls sure have grown" quip.
