White Chicks Unrated & Uncut

Irreverent comedy masters Shawn and Marlon Wayans ply audience laughs as a couple of second-rate FBI agents attempting to prove their crime-stopping abilities by guarding socialite sisters Tiffany (Anne Dudek) and Brittany (Maitland Ward) at a weekend fiesta in the Hamptons. Laughs go over the top when the sibling agents paint their skin and attend the party as imposters of the white heiresses that they've been sent to protect from kidnappers. Keenen Ivory Wayans directed this underrated comedy. The unrated version is minimally different from the theatrical release but includes a slumber party dildo scene that never should've been cut. Extra features include audio commentary by all three Wayans brothers that include a definition of "new mouth," three somewhat redundant behind-the-scenes featurettes, English and French language and subtitles, and filmographies. Aspect ratio is anamorphic widescreen 1.85.1. Dolby Digital 5.1 provides brilliant sound quality. (Movie - Five Stars, DVD Features - Four Stars) Unrated 115 mins. (Columbia Tristar)
