White Chicks is a movie created in 2004, written and directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. The two main actors are Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans. Being one of the many films created in the era of “Black Humor”, the “White Chicks” is also one of the greatest amongst them. Again, the main heroes are two undercover agents, presumably from FBI, which is typical of those comedy movies. So two agents doing their thing, saving lives.
