ALL IN THE FAMILY: WHITE CHICKS opens June 23rd
After messing up a major drug bust in New York City, two African American FBI agents (who are also brothers), Marcus and Kevin Copeland (Shawn and Marlon Wayans), try to impress their boss by volunteering to protect the Wilson Sisters, Tiffany (Anne Dudek) and Brittany (Maitland Ward), the heiresses of a hotel empire, from a kidnapping scheme during a short trip from JFK to the Hamptons. Deciding to change the strategy drastically, the brothers use themselves as bait, wearing lots of pale makeup and dresses to pass as the Wilson sisters, while the real sisters are hidden away, safe from harm. Now, the agents just have to convince the world (including their coworkers who are now protecting *them* and the Wilsons' friends and family) that they're actually young, rich, white heiresses. Directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans, the film stars Shawn and Marlon Wayans, Frankie Faison, Jaime King, John Heard, Terry Crews, Busy Phillips, Drew Sidora, & Brittany Daniel.

Reviews

Latest Review Additions:
  
Fahrenheit 9/11 (in Film)
Fahrenheit 9/11 will sweep like a hurricane across America when it is released. It's a brilliant documentary in every possible way. It runs the entire gamut of human emotion. It is funny, harrowing, despicable, grotesque, heartbreaking, shameless, and informative all at once.


The Terminal (in Film)
The Terminal is the worst Spielberg film I've ever seen. He has had an incredible run of success in Hollywood, but was bound to hit a low point sooner or later. The film will make money because of the marquis names, but will leave audiences totally unsatisfied.


The Chronicles of Riddick (in Film)
With the exception of the visual effects, žThe Chronicle of RiddickÓ is an adequate sci-fi action flick filled with many Shakespeare references that make no sense. In terms of action, it should boost Diesel's career because he is commanding in this role, but there's no substance to his character.


Spartan DVD Review (in Film)
Currently out on DVD, David Mamet's Spartan is a crisp, taut thriller, laden with surprises and frenetic in its pace. It succeeds as a first-rate thriller and that's hard to find these days in Hollywood.


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (in Film)
"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" is the best of three Harry Potter films presented on the big screen thus far. Fans will embrace the maturity of the characters, ponder the mystery that is set for them and enjoy the adventure that will bring them back for more.

I'll Sing For You (in Film)
A legendary musician is reborn again through his music in this fascinating documentary
The Day After Tomorrow (in Film)
The dialogue is absolutely terrible and the constant environmental propaganda becomes unbearable, but the film is fantastic eye-candy and delivers an awesome cinematic spectacle.
Baadasssss! (in Film)
Mario Van Peebles has decided to make a film in homage to his father by recreating that the process that led to that film, "Sweet Sweetback's BaadAsssss Song", being made. "Baadasssss!" captures the essence of independent filmmaking. It's entertaining and inspirational
Soul Plane (in Film)
The film makes no effort whatsoever to have any semblance of a plot or character development. There are a few chuckles, but there needed to be some gutbusters for Soul Plane to succeed. .  A ride on a real plane would be more entertaining.
Raising Helen (in Film)
Raising Helen is the same, dismal formula film that Hollywood cranks out year after year.  It has no surprises, no character development, and worst of all, tries to manipulate your feelings with crappy melodrama.
Saved (in Film)
Saved is one of those films where everybody learns a lesson and grows in the end.  This is annoying because it makes the film utterly predictable. So the film’s approach is kind of wasted if all the characters learn something and the audience does not.
Shrek 2 (in Film)
Dreamworks has done an amazing job of not only bring back the stellar cast but coming up with a plot that all will enjoy. Shrek 2 is the one of the best animated sequels to come out in theaters in a long time. It’s just as good as the original.
Troy (in Film)
The CGI and wooden dialogue come dangerously close to diminishing the film, but the positive aspects far outweigh the negative.  Troy will surely be a hit with audiences and march to box office glory this weekend. 
Coffee & Cigarettes (in Film)
Over the years Jarmusch compiled more segments, completing the series in 2003.  It’s hit or miss as far as the segments go.  Some are boring and nonsensical while others are hilarious and brilliantly performed.
Laws of Attraction (in Film)
Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore are attractive actors that have great screen chemistry together. Unfortunately, that doesn't save Laws of Attraction from being an average at best romantic comedy. They deserve a better plot for their romantic escapades.

Mean Girls (in Film)
Just when you thought you've seen all the teen movies possible.this one surprises you. This undiscovered comedy is a definite early "summer" bird contender. It has all the makings of a box office hit.

Man on Fire (in Film)
Man on Fire is a film that will own you utterly as you watch it. Denzel Washington delivers a revenge film of raw feeling and ferocity. He goes to the darkest, most nuanced place of his career and it is more hardcore than this reviewer could have ever imagined.
