Plot: When "The Man" tries to derail a black candidate's presidential campaign, Undercover Brother and his fellow secret agents come to the rescue. Runtime: 86 mins Release Date: 31 May 2002
These days, we're all used to the weekly deluge of movies adapted from novels, comics and other mediums, but 'Undercover Brother' – released in 2003 - was one of the first movies to be adapted from an internet source. The film is based on a series of internet-based short animated episodes, also called 'Undercover Brother'. The adaptation is successful with some scenes lifted directly from the animated shorts , focusing on racial stereotypes while paying homage to spy movies and seventies blaxploitation films.Eddie Griffin is brilliant as the confident, swaggering, yet <more>
good-hearted title character, who is called into the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D organisation to stop The Man after he kidnapped presidential hopeful General Warren Boutwell Billy Dee Williams and brainwashed him to sell fried chicken, with an aim to wipe out the black community.One of the strengths of this movie is the cast. Aside from the aforementioned Griffin and Williams, there's Dave Chappelle as Conspiracy Brother, in a role not dissimilar to his stand-up routine in this case a good thing , Gary Anthony Williams who provided many of the voices in the original internet series as Smart Brother, Aujanue Ellis as the headstrong Sistah Girl, the backbone of the group, Neil Patrick Harris before his breakout roles in the 'Harold and Kumar' movies and 'How I Met Your Mother' as the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D's white intern Lance, Chris Kattan as Mr. Feather, the underling to The Man who is secretly enchanted by black culture, Denise Richards as White She-Devil, described as 'the black man's kryptonite', and a cameo from James Brown, the Godfather of Soul.While there is a lot of silly humour in this film like the 'Austin Powers' trilogy and broad racial stereotypes – black people like fried chicken and hate mayonnaise – the black director Malcolm D. Lee, and the predominantly black cast ensures the black characters are never mocked for a cheap laugh.The soundtrack is a highlight, with a lot of songs from the blaxploitation era, some Michael Jackson and more modern urban music. Even if you're not a fan of this genre of music, it's still fairly catchy.Though it's very much a comedy at times very silly but never stupid , the film has a lot to say about how ridiculous racial stereotypes are. The role of Boutwell as the possible first black president is relevant to modern viewers even though the film's only six years old with the presidency of Barack Obama only a few months old.Overall, 'Undercover Brother' is a hilarious, silly film, which pays homage to the spy and blaxploitation genre and explores racial stereotypes without ridiculing them for cheap laughs.
I don't thing I stopped laughing for more than ten seconds while I watched this really funny movie. True, the jokes were predictable, and often rather juvenile, thankfully without the usual vulgarity, but the actors presented them so innocently, and even credibly, that I just had to laugh. The premise, even though absurd and rather racist, had little bearing on the movie itself, and was little more than a small and little noticed prop. I expected Billie Dee Williams and Chris Kattan to be excellent in their roles, and I was not disappointed, but even better, the supporting actors brought <more>
a freshness and delight to their parts. And importantly, the producers liked the concept of the movie, and had the business sense to invest enough money into the scenery, the costumes, and the locations to make this hilarious comedy a great success!
It Was A Funny Movie! Stop Being So Uptight! (by gluba2000)
I gave this a 10/10 This is the best comedy I've seen. Probably THE best I've seen since Airplane! good comedies are far and few between, IMO. One reviewer compared this to I'm Gonna Git You Sucka and I haven't seen that so yep, this IS the best comedy I've seen since Airplane! It was funny, original, goofy, and a great parody at the goofy cop shows and "blaxplotation" films is that what they were called? from the 70's.I was happy I watched this.It's a good movie so don't listen to the uptight users here saying it's racist most white people I <more>
know like mayo, though I am and I don't...guess it's all a matter of taste. Great movie...I recommend it if you want some good laughs and a good hour and a half to waste on a good movie! 10/10
OK, after reading a few of the other reviews, I feel the "point" of this movie was lost on some people. Much like 'Blazing Saddles,' the "prejudice" in this movie was meant as a joke. This movie makes fun of all races black and/or white. If anyone is offended, then they aren't "getting it." So, this isn't the best comedy of all time, but it is very amusing and has a great soundtrack. There are a lot of subtle and not-so-subtle stabs at both blacks and whites, you really have to watch this movie a few times to catch it all. The plot isn't deep <more>
but at least it keeps moving, and the cast is pretty "solid" to steal a term from the movie . All in all, I wasn't overly thrilled with this movie when I first saw it, but after seeing it again and a few times more, it has really grown on me. Maybe as I am a child of the 70's, and I still listen to a lot of Funk music from that era, that I can really appreciate this flick. Keep an open mind, try not to take any of it too seriously, and pay close attention to some of the less-obvious humor and I think you will clearly enjoy this movie.
I thought undercover Brother was great it will have you laughing threw the whole movie. The part i liked was when undercover brother was making a beat on a glass wall when he was breaking in trying to get something and he was making a circle between the glass and end up making the whole glass break that was so funny i was crying happy tears. I also thought that the message of the movie was very helpful because it is saying that it don't matter what race you are you can still help each other out.I liked the part when undercover brother was acting like he was white to find more evidence <more>
about their cast that was really funny too. I thought that they needed to put some more famous people in their like Omarion,t.i.,usher,nick cannon,young jock,r-kelly,liljon,. But other then that i thought that the movie was really funny i can watch undercover brother a 100 times in a row.
I found this a very entertaining film (by stevehorvath55)
Undercover Brother is an entertaining film. I enjoyed its easy and light handling of race relations, and yet still allowing some its character's to make fun of their own stereotyped social cast. However, I think that some of the scenes were pushed a bit too far, such are the near conclusion fighting scenes. The music was pleasingly supportive. I recommend this movie to anyone who is old enough to understand its humor and understand its meaning. The ironic twist of this movie is that "The Man," who is against the development or advancement of the Black Culture in his motives <more>
turns out to be no different from those people against whom he is seems to fight.
An Afro-American organization, the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D., is in permanent fight against a white organization, The Man, defending the values of the black people in North America. When the Afro-American candidate Gen. Warren Boutwell Billy Dee Williams has a weird behavior in his presidential campaign, the Undercover Brother Eddie Griffin is hired to work undercover in the white organization and find what happened with the potential candidate.I do not recall the last time I laughed so much with a comedy. "Undercover Brother" is one of the most hilarious and silly comedies I have <more>
ever seen, and very underrated in IMDb. The story is a big joke with the North American racism, both white and black, with very funny situations "à la Austin Powers". I believe this is the major point of the plot, keeping a neutral position and ridiculing and satirizing racism of Caucasians and Blacks. Dave Chappelle is the funniest, but Chris Kattan, Eddie Griffin, Aunjanue Ellis, Denise Richards and the rest of the cast are also amazingly funny. I did not understand the joke with mayonnaise, but I believe that usually Afro-American people do not like this dressing, or at least there is a clichés about in USA. There are many other jokes related to the North American culture that are impossible to be understood by an overseas viewer, but anyway I loved this movie. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Undercover Brother Com a Cor e a Coragem" "Undercover Brother With the Color and Courage"
It Tears the Roof Off the Mother Sucker! (by EmperorNortonII)
I loved "Undercover Brother!" It's the movie "Pootie Tang" should have been! I found it over-the-top, laugh-out-loud funny! Eddie Griffin scores as Undercover Brother, an afrolicious version of Austin Powers. And Chris Kattan is hilarious as Mr. Feather, an evil underling of The Man, devoted to the white man's dominance, but succumbing to hip-hop influence. Other funny performances came from Dave Chappelle as the paranoid Conspiracy Brother, and Neil Patrick Harris as the clueless caucasian intern Lance. Some viewers may complain about the black stereotypes, but <more>
you must look at it as black actors and filmmakers laughing at themselves. It's all a "solid" laugh!
This movie wasn't expecting Oscars. It does what it was made to do. I only give it an 8 because it has some of the funniest lines in it. Ex: Dave Chappelle: George Washington Carver made the first computer out of a peanut! A peanut! The plot basically goes like this: When the Man and Mr. Feather Chris Kattan plot to hypnotize African-Americans with General Boutwell's Billy Dee Williams chicken, the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. recruits Undercover Brother Eddie Griffin , a modern Robin Hood. With supporting roles include: Denise Richards, Neil Patrick Harris, and Chi McBride, <more>
"Undercover Brother" will have you screaming "SOLID!!!!"
