Undercover Brother Reviews

July 20, 2002
It's breezily entertaining and culturally specific without resorting to gross-out jokes or cruelty.

Much of Undercover Brother plays as a funnier, if similarly addled, Bamboozled.

The film works no matter which side of the racial divide you're on, because nothing unites an audience quite like making fun of everyone.

Instead of packing an R-rated, politically incorrect punch, the film goes for the easy laughs without getting too raunchy or violent, and the result is mildly amusing but mostly mediocre.

Even the soundtrack selections are second- or third-hand.

Even during periods when the belly laughs subside, Griffin continues to keep it really amusing with his exuberant flair for physical comedy and mock-serious swagger.

Stereotype-based satire; not for young kids.

"Undercover Brother" fares better as a blaxploitation spoof than as silly-spy shtick. Scathing but not scatological, "Brother's" withering insights are equal opportunity: Here, white guilt is as satirically punishable an offense as propping up prejudice.

Much funnier and craftier than it had any right to be.
