    See this film and laugh your ass off, and in between your tears of joy learn the true cause of racial and ethnic division.

    It's a goofball of a movie and a throwaway, but it's also completely free of self-import and the slightest hint of sentiment -- a perfect light entertainment that's guaranteed to launch itself as a franchise.

    The rare popcorn movie that delivers. High-spirited and kinetic, it's the most endearingly goofy low comedy since "How High."
  4. 75
    It has a premise that never stops percolating.
  5. The picture is crammed with shameless satire, engaging moments of pure silliness and jokes that border on the outrageous. It combines relentless energy with an aura of good nature for a formula that works.
  6. Griffin & Co. manage to be spectacularly outrageous, several of the gag sequences are hilariously imaginative and there's something almost deliciously liberating in the film's determination to make good-natured fun of what previously has been a very sacred movie cow.

    Tries to wring laughs from just about every dusty stereotype about blacks and whites imaginable. But it's all cheap, lazy, and unoriginal.

    Undercover Brother is da bomb. Get it on DVD. On first viewing, you'll probably miss some of the jokes, as they are very subtle, but multiple screenings will reveal even more laughs! Eddie Griffin does a fantastic job leading a briliiant cast including Dave Chapelle, Chris Kattan and even a chameo from James Brown. If you are the type that enjoys light-hearted comedies, such as Deuce Bigalow and Wedding Crashers, you'll fall in love with Undercover Brother. Collapse
