Whiteboyz (sometimes styled Whiteboys) is a 1999 American comedy film. The independent, limited release was written by Danny Hoch, Garth Belcon, Henri M. Kessler, Richard Stratton, and Marc Levin, and directed by Levin. The film opened to 37 theatres on the week of September 11, 1999.
The plot centers upon the coming of age and misadventures of three white youths from the small town of Holyoke, Iowa who, having been seduced by the fast money and easy women of the gangsta rap lifestyle, yearn to be African American. The trio of would-be hoodlums ventures to Cabrini–Green housing project in Chicago, Illinois, where they have crossovers with gangstas and the police in the climactic finale, the irrepressible leader of the white hoodlums is beaten up and they went back to Iowa and decided to stay there.
Despite having only a gross box office of $22,451 during its entire theatrical run, the film has broadcast many times on cable networks such as VH1, MTV2, HBO, and the Fuse Network. This film is also notably the first role for a then-unknown Piper Perabo.
