Plot
Two black male FBI agents try to foil a kidnapping plot by going undercover as white, female socialites.


Review
Marlon and Shawn Wayans play floundering FBI partners, redeeming themselves by going unofficially undercover to foil the kidnapping of two spoilt socialite sisters at the event of the season. So they transform themselves, with inevitable romantic, professional and couture complications, from handsome black men into hideous white girls. And all the girls’ peers notice is that Brittany and Tiffany are taller?


If you are unreasonably partial to the comedy stylings of those wacky Brothers Wayans, then God help us, but this ‘Miss Congeniality meets Big Mama in whiteface’ wheeze is not as bad as Scary Movie 2.


It’s shaming to admit, but amid the crude silliness there are a few helpless laughs, like a dance battle of rich bitches when it’s "Triple TKA" (totally time to kick ass).


Verdict
Odds on you know what you're in for, so if you're prepared to shell out your reddies for it, you'll find it amicable enough. But be warned - Damon isn't in this one.
