It's breezily entertaining and culturally specific without resorting to gross-out jokes or cruelty.
June 11, 2002
Much of Undercover Brother plays as a funnier, if similarly addled, Bamboozled.
June 10, 2002
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.
June 10, 2002
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.
June 6, 2002
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.

There's not enough to sustain the comedy.
May 31, 2002
The smartest bonehead comedy of the summer.

It's about keeping it funny, and on that score Undercover Brother is right on.

A colorful, cool and completely hilarious ride that'll have you rolling through the outtakes.

It combines relentless energy with an aura of good nature for a formula that works.

A joyful mix of high and low humor, pulled off with style and an eye for glamour.
May 31, 2002
The broad physical comedy is as reliable as a brick house.
May 31, 2002
A surprisingly 'solid' achievement by director Malcolm D. Lee and writer John Ridley.
May 31, 2002
Every broad stereotype and discomfiting joke carries the sting of truth.
May 31, 2002
Led by Griffin's smartly nuanced performance and enthusiasm, the cast has a lot of fun with the material.
May 31, 2002
A live-action version that's as funny and savvy as the original, even if one leaves the theatre exhausted by its barrage of pop-culture references, and perhaps disappointed by its softness as satire.
May 31, 2002
There's an anarchic energy to this movie and a commitment to reality-based foolishness that wins you over.
May 31, 2002
Feels like one of those movies lifted from a Saturday Night Live skit and then stretched way thin.
