Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans star in this comedy as two African American FBI agents who are assigned to protect two white hotel heiresses from kidnapping. The agents decide to go undercover, and don women's clothes and lots of pale make-up in order to make themselves look like the two heiresses and take their place. Also with Jaime King, Frankie Faison, Lochlyn Munro, Rochelle Aytes, Jennifer Carpenter and Jessica Cauffiel. Directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A man and a woman kiss in several scenes, and a woman kisses a man. A man kisses a dog romantically (we hear him moaning). Two men wake up in bed together (it is implied that they have had sex). Two women dance together with suggestive gestures, two other women do a suggestive dance on a bar while men cheer them on, and then two groups of women do a dance battle with suggestive moves. A woman tries to seduce a man who is homosexual (she wraps her leg around his waist and hugs him close). A man flirts with a man who's disguised as a woman, caresses his hair and smacks him on the buttocks. A woman overhears a conversation between her husband and another woman and thinks that they are having sex. A woman and a man who's disguised as a woman are auctioned off to men in an audience; one man comes onto the stage, carries off the man-dressed-as-a-woman that he just "won," and looks at him longingly. A man stands over a man who's disguised as a woman lying on the beach, when the latter looks up, we see a pronounced bulge in the former's swim trunks. Men and women admire each other as they walk past, and a man admires a man disguised as a woman and approaches him. Two men disguised as women threaten four men with physical violence when the men make suggestive remarks. We hear that two men who have arrived at a party are "strippers" and that part of their set-up is to do a mock kidnapping. A man pulls down a woman's top and pulls down a woman's skirt (we don't see the women but hear them scream and see the reactions of the people around them). A suitcase is opened that contains several sets of false breasts; they are skin toned with nipples. We see a bare-chested man dancing in a night club scene. We see many men and women in swimsuits revealing bare backs, cleavage, bare chests (on men), bare abdomens and legs. We see the bare backs of two men (they appear to be in boxer shorts). Two young women are shown in mini-skirts revealing bare thighs and abdomens. Women wear low-cut dresses and tops that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders and bare backs. We see a portrait of a bare-chested man with a fur draped over his lap. There is an ongoing gag between two men about who they would choose to have sex with. A man sniffs a woman's panties (they turn out to belong to a man who is disguising himself as a woman). A man puts pills into a drink to "loosen" his date up for sex. A man says that his "tongue is kind of big" and wags it at a man disguised as a woman. A man talks to a man disguised as a woman about oysters being aphrodisiacs. A man says to a woman "I don't bite unless you ask me to."

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Two men disguised as women fight with a group of men, one fires a gun, another pulls a knife, one is hit on the head, a man is shot in the shoulder, and another man is shot in the shoulder. Two men shoot it out against three other men: they shoot back and forth in a store causing a great deal of property damage, they run out into a street chasing the three men. Two men fight against three men with many punches and kicks; one is thrown over a store counter, one is tackled into an ice cream cooler, one man holds a gun on two other men, and one man has a bloody mouth. A woman jumps on the back of a man disguised as a woman and another woman hits him. A number of women are knocked off of a stage onto tables below, two women fall off of a scaffolding and crash onto a stage below and buckets of red paint spill on their heads. A man disguised as a woman chases a man who has snatched his purse; they run through traffic, one runs into a bicyclist knocking him down, one tumbles over a moving car and he eventually tackles the thief and they both crash to the ground. A dog snarls and barks violently at a man and a woman, it lunges and tackles the man to the floor, bites his ankle and drags him into another room (we hear a crunch); the man gets free, slams the door on the dog, we hear the dog barking and slamming into the door and we see the door begin to break up until eventually the dog knocks itself out (we hear it cry). A man disguised as a woman punches a man in the face. Two men try to grab a man disguised as a woman, and he struggles with them and flips them onto the floor. A dog on a leash falls out of the window of a speeding car, the driver grabs the leash and tries to pull the dog in, he swerves along a highway and eventually drives off the road and into a ditch causing two of the passengers to suffer cuts on their faces (we see a bit of blood and the two scream). A man squeezes a man's crotch causing him to moan and grimace. A man admires a man disguised as a woman and approaches him, only to be sprayed in the face with mace. A man disguised as a woman throws a football hitting another man hard in the chest and knocking him to the ground. A man pulls a woman's hair hard. A woman helps a man disguised as a woman into an extremely tight pair of pants, by shoving, cinching and zipping; she then pulls the back of his underwear way up causing him to scream in pain. Two men dressed like women threaten four other men with physical violence when the men make suggestive remarks, and two women yell at a man abusively. A man and a woman argue in several scenes. Two wealthy women treat people in the service industry with disdain, in several scenes. Two groups of women insult each other and their respective mothers. A man pretends to kill himself by wrapping his necktie around a curtain rod. A woman vomits in a toilet (we see goo on her mouth and hand). A man disguised as a woman picks his feet at a restaurant, bites off a hangnail and spits it into a man's drink, then he flatulates and burps repeatedly and eats extremely sloppily. A man disguised as a woman flatulates loudly and repeatedly in a restroom, eventually forcing the other women in the room to leave.

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
