Rating:
PG-13
Undercover Brother is a 2002 action comedy movie by director Malcolm D. Lee, starring Eddie Griffin, Chris Kattan, Denise Richards, and Aunjenue Ellis. In the movie, Eddie Griffin is Anton Johnson, also known as Undercover Brother, a man who is recruited by the all-black justice league, B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D., which is working to stop “The Man� from releasing an irresistibly packaged hallucinogenic drug that will ensure that the black presidential candidate, General Warren Boutwell (Billy Dee Williams) does not win the election. With his sassy partner, Sistah Girl (Aunjenue Ellis), and his giant afro, Undercover Brother can do anything. But when he meets the sexy Penelope Snow (Denise Richards), “The Man’s� secret weapon, the job may be even too difficult for the able, but easily distracted, Undercover Brother. Undercover Brother won a 2002 WAFCA Award for Best Guilty Pleasure and was nominated for four 2003 Black Reel Awards and a 2003 Golden Trailer Award.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Jan Stuart

    A funkadelic fun ride that shrewdly reinvigorates the eye-popping styles and pulpy veneer of '70s blaxploitation flicks.

  • 80

    Variety Joe Leydon

    A frequently inspired hit-and-miss burlesque that definitely hits more than it misses.

  • 60

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    The one-liners are clever enough and the physical comedy and pop-culture goofing sufficiently dumb and broad to make Undercover Brother, a reasonably pleasant experience.
