Editor's Note
Malcolm D. Lee's UNDERCOVER BROTHER is a rollicking spoof that earns the distinction of being the first studio film to find its inspiration in a character created specifically for the Internet. Based on writer John Ridley's satirical series which premiered on the Urban Entertainment web site, UNDERCOVER BROTHER follows a hipper-than-hip, Afro-sporting superhero-of-sorts (the multi-talented Eddie Griffin) who stands up for oppressed people everywhere, and looks damn good doing it. But when The Man and his demonic henchman Mr. Feather (Chris Kattan) drug a wildly popular black presidential candidate (Billy Dee Williams), Undercover Brother must team up with the positive underground group the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. in order to restore peace and unity within the community. Employing his seemingly endless arsenal of clever disguises--including the ultra-nerdy Anton Jackson--Undercover Brother embarks on his dangerous mission.

Lee's live action comedy successfully preserves the energy of the original animated shorts, resulting in an hysterical romp that is stuffed with enough pop culture references for two sequels. Griffin uses the character as a platform for his boundless talents, and supporting players Kattan, Dave Chappelle, Aunjenue Ellis, Denise Richards, and Neil Patrick Harris do their part to keep the jokes erupting like a giddy volcano.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...Winningly silly....The blunt satiric arrows fly in all directions, hitting targets of various colors..." 05/31/2002 p.E20

USA Today
"...Affably loopy....The broad physical comedy is as reliable as a brick house..." 05/31/2002 p.7E

Variety
"...Keenly accurate and gleefully affectionate in its lampooning of cliches....Griffin does his finest bigscreen work to date, showing a fine flair for physical comedy and a deft touch for mock-serious swagger..." 06/03/2002 p.20-9

Total Film
"...UNDERCOVER BROTHER is Griffin's comedic redemption..." 10/01/2002 p.130

Sight and Sound
"...The cast -- especially Eddie Griffin in the title role -- hit the right tone, and director Malcolm D. Lee has a feel for the material..." 03/01/2003 p.59

San Francisco Chronicle 6 of 10
Undercover Brother is the sort of comedy that lacks comic invention but makes up for it with comic fecundity. Don't like this joke? Here comes another, and another. The picture is crammed with shameless satire, engaging moments of pure silliness and jokes that border on the outrageous. - Mike LaSalle
