White Chicks Gets the Nod from Critics

From the who-woulda-thunk-it department: Marlon and Shawn Wayans, whose made-up mugs --plastered across every NYC bus for months -- looked like a promo for "Romy and Michelle's Losing Battle With Cake," received kudos from CNN:
"The Wayans' tricks work best here when they lull you into complacency with extended scenes in "white chick" character, then bust out in moments of hilariously unexpected blackness. It works least when they stoop to purely physical comedy, like Shawn's face being smashed against a car window, Marlon tackling a purse-snatcher or Marlon's nether regions being pummeled in an annoying variety of ways."

Sounds like a weekend blockbuster? Uh, we'll see.
