I’m just gonna put this out there: I enjoyed the movie White Chicks. In fairness, I have only seen perhaps three-quarters of the 2004 film while channel surfing. Yet the parts that I’ve caught made me laugh, repeatedly. I know not all critics agree with me. But let’s review White Chicks‘ merits for a moment. The Wayans brothers? Funny. Outlandish disguises? Funny. Stereotypical Valley girls who are actually undercover FBI agents? Like, so funny!
Which is why I was pleasantly surprised today to read that Shawn, Marlon, and Keenen Ivory Wayans are planning a sequel to White Chicks. Details are scarce at the moment, but I think we can all imagine pretty much how this movie is going to go. Another crime of some sort, another opportunity for those luckless FBI guys to prove themselves by going under deep cover — this script is going to write itself. And as soon as Marlon and Shawn put on that make-up, you’re pretty much guaranteed an hour and a half of LOLs.
Would I pay money to see the next chapter in the White Chicks saga in theaters? Well…maybe not. But I would so watch the majority of this sequel when I’m bored and it makes its way to basic cable. Anyone else with me on this? And: If this is happening, can Little Man 2 be far behind?
