“White Chicks 2” May Be Coming Cause…Dreams Come True, We Guess?
Hollywood is obsessed with making sequels and rebooting things nowadays. We’re surprised that they haven’t rebooted of a reboot yet, or done a sequel of a movie that hasn’t even come out yet. It’s too much. It’s so hard to keep up with the original movies. Why do we need a second and a third and a fourth and a fifth when we fell asleep halfway through the first one? Even if nobody’s seen the movie, it’s still going to get a sequel because there might be one person living in a remote village in New Zealand who is dying to know what happens to the characters after the original movie ended. Hollywood has got that person’s back in every which way.
There are some movies that we wouldn’t expect to get a sequel, because they were a bit problematic, even back then when the world was a simpler time.
Remember White Chicks? If you don’t, that’s okay. It’s probably for the best that you don’t remember it.
White Chicks was a movie where Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans played two FBI agents who had to go undercover as white women.
The movie came out in 2004, when Paris Hilton was still a big thing, and the heiresses in the movie bear a resemblance to the Hilton sisters. That is, if the Hilton sisters had faces that look like masks.
We don’t know why anyone would want a sequel to the movie, but it turns out, one might be happening soon.
Terry Crews, who was in the O.G. White Chicks hinted that a second one might be inflicted upon us.
“Is White Chicks 2 happening anytime soon? I don’t know. But there’s been a lot of rumblings happening,” said Crews in an interview. Normally, we love whatever Terry Crews has to say, but this is the one exception.
Talk That Talk
It turns out, the people who gave us the misogynistic monstrosity of the first one are talking about doing the whole thing over again.
“A lot of people want us to do it. So me and my brothers have been talking. So if things go right, we hope to do a White Chicks 2,” said Crews.
Did we learn nothing from the past? Why do we need to keep on making the same mistakes over and over again?
If Terry Crews is still in it, we might not mind seeing the second one as much.
Although, we’re still creeped out by the way Marlon and Shawn Wayans looked when they were the titular white chicks, and that movie came out a good 15 years ago.
Don’t remember much about the first one? Let’s take another look at it. But we won’t take a look at it too closely, because again, they look really creepy like that.
A Thousand Miles
In the movie, Terry Crews’s character, Lattrell Spencer, says he loves the song “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton.
It’s a case of art imitating life, because in real life, Terry Crews also loves that song. And that kind of makes us love Terry Crews just a little but more. He’s all sensitive like that.
And now we’ve also got “A Thousand Miles” stuck in our heads. “And I would walk a thousand miles… nah nah nah…”
What's In A Name
Marlon and Shawn Wayans go undercover as Brittany and Tiffany Wilson. And the sisters kind of resemble Paris and Nicky Hilton.
The original name of the movie was The Miltons, and not White Chicks, because it kind of resembles the Hilton sister’s familial name.
Just think. Somewhere out there is a parallel universe where people don’t watch the movie White Chicks. They watch the movie The Miltons. That parallel universe must be so completely different from ours. We’re glad we don’t live there.
Gone With The Miltons
But the title of the movie wasn’t the only thing that changed. The entire concept of the movie was different, too.
The original version of The Miltons was supposed to be a comedic remake of Gone With the Wind, but set in modern day Beverly Hills instead of Civil War-era Georgia.
The script ended up changing and became was it is today. Honestly, the original version of the movie sounds a lot better than something where two men dress up as women.
There are a lot of Paris Hilton references in the movie, which makes sense because the whole thing is basically one big Paris Hilton reference.
When the Wilson sisters get out of their airplane, the song that’s playing is a parody of the real song “Miss Hilton” by The Penfifteen Club.
If you’re not familiar with “Miss Hilton,” it was a song that was recorded for “A Simple Life,” the reality show that Paris Hilton starred on.
Nothing But A Number
In the movie, Jamie King and Brittany Daniel play the Van Der Geld sisters, and they’re the same age.
In real life, the actresses are different ages. They only appear to be the same age because of movie magic!
Jamie King is 3 years, 1 month, and 6 days younger than Brittany Daniels. But Brittany Daniel does have a sister who is the same age as her. She shares a birthday with her twin sister Cynthia Daniel.
The prosthetics in the movie are pretty creepy. But they’re also pretty incredible if you think about it.
The person who did the special effects makeup for the movie was legendary make up artist Greg Cannom.
You might have seen Cannom’s work in other (less weird) places. He did the makeup for The Mask as well as Mrs. Doubtfire. And both of those movies didn’t haunt our nightmares with how weird the makeup looked, so that is definitely a bonus.
In the movie, actor John Heard plays the father of two sisters who are named Megan and Heather Vandergeld.
It wasn’t a stretch for Heard to play someone who’s related to a girl named “Megan” and a girl named “Heather.”
14 years before this movie came out, Heard played someone who had a daughter and a niece named “Megan” and “Heather” in the movie Home Alone. Wow. It’ really sounds like John Heard is getting typecast out there.
Spell It Out
When they go to the charity ball at The Royal Hamptons Hotel, there is a sign above the stage.
The sign reads “Southampton Nuclear Opposition Benefit.” And if you abbreviate the name of the charity, you get “SNOB.”
It’s a not so subtle dig at the type of people who would be attending the charity ball. But then again, there’s really nothing about this movie that’s subtle. It’s about as subtle as the red nose on a clown.
What's In A Name
Jamie King and Brittany Daniel play the Van Der Geld sisters, and their last name is pretty significant.
The name “Van Der Geld” is Dutch. It translates to “of the money.” It’s a fitting name for a rich family.
You can’t really be poor and have the last name Van Der Geld. That would be false advertising. No, if your last name is something flashy like Van Der Geld, you have no choice but to be rich.
In the movie, the brothers pick up the Wilson sisters at the airport. And yes, they used an actual airport for this scene.
The outside shot of the airport is actually Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), in West Palm Beach, Florida. It’s pretty fitting, because the only thing that’s worse than the movie White Chicks is the state of Florida.
They didn’t CGI the airport into place, in case you were wondering if it was a real airport or not.
White Chicks has the actors Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans, and Lochlyn Munro in it. But it’s not the first or last time they acted in a movie together.
Previously, the three actors were all in the movie Scary Movie together, which was made in 2000.
After White Chicks, the three actors were all in the movie Little Man together, which was made in 2006. We hope that they don’t hate each other, but then again, it doesn’t seem like it if they keep working together.
