Jaime Kennedy's magnum opus about a white kid/wannabe/ghetto hood makes valid social commentary while garnering a few chuckles. Its point is made by the fact that everyone by now knows a least one somebody "keepin it real!" who really ain't, but don't know it yet.

"Don't be hatin'"

A senator arranges for his son, a rich white kid who fancies himself black, to be kidnapped by a couple of black actors pretending to be murderers to try and shock him out of his plans to become a rapper.

Great premise, but they managed to muck it up. This flick was big on stereotypes; small on imagination. A lot of the humor was sophomoric and crass; indicating a not- too - mature writing staff. Some adult supervision would have greatly enhanced this predictable bore. The casting was great - all the main characters were quite capable and the movie did have its moments. Jamie Kennedy had the rap-wannabe dialect down. The movie quickly became bogged down with racial stereotyping, however: hostile blacks, lots of guns, women as sex objects. This film had lots of potential - it just needed some direction and, in the end, originality. The word "bitch" was used so frequently as it would indicate that the script writer received royalties for it. "Bitch", "bee-och"; it quickly graduated from offensive to nauseating.

While this film is promising in it's setup, it just doesn't stay fly throughout the film's entirety, but some solid performances, and scenes make it what it is, straight up hilarious.

Don't be hating! B-Rad's in the house! Jamie Kennedy plays B-Rad, a white guy who acts like he is black. Overall, Malibu is a hilarious comedy. There's one particular part when B-Rad and his sidekick`s were ambushed by a rival gang; he's firing guns and when asked where he learnt to shoot like that and he replies Grand Theft Auto 3. Another high light of the movie was when all the gang members in the house were facing the crew of Malibu people holding a whale harpoon and a rocket launcher. This movie was kind of stupid. I'll admit it but I found it outrageously funny. My guilty pleasure!

It made me laugh for a tiny bit but it is still a mindless film. One of those "I always wanted to make a film about..." films.

Ridiculous plot line but it did have its moments. . . An attempt to send the message of be your self to the audience that needs it the most. . .

Very uneven.

This had to be one of the worst films I have seen in the last decade. I do not care if it was made to satirize suburban kids who want to be "bad", it was just poorly constructed. The acting also left much to be desired. I cannot believe a good actors like Taye Diggs or Blair Underwood would take on a role in this film. I could understand Anthony Anderson doing it, but are you kidding me? It was also slow paced, making for a slow and painful 86 minutes. Jamie Kennedy is not funny and I still wonder how he gets film roles. He has become the new Pauly Shore. Do not waste your time watching this film.

I don't know what's worse, this movie, or the people it was making fun of. I can't tell if this movie was a comedy or a documentary.

This was one of those stupid-funny movies that's easy to reference with your friends, but it's not great comedy. The third act is especially terrible.
August 14, 2009
Good god how dumb. Okay, whats worse is there are so many guys who act like the dude in this movie. For real!

I had a fun time, watching this with all of my friends on DVD. Its just for a few laughs, nothing amazing.

I couldn't stop laughing. Jaime Kennedy was so good. I would just not recommend watching it with littler ones but still I was cracking up.

I understand everyone who dislikes or hates this movie, it does have its flaws, but Jamie Kennedy's B-Rad just made me laugh so hard that I love the movie in spite of it all. I know way to many B-Rads to not love this movie.
December 7, 2008
I unfortunately kind of like this movie. Don't get me wrong, it's terrible as far as actual quality goes, but I had the misfortune of watching it with a bunch of friends several times in a row during a sleepover birthday party thing and, well, now it's kind of ingrained into the good memory of that. Plus, it is sort of funny how it just rips on the entire hip-hop culture and everything, heh... just a little bit...
