My brother
21 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

you ain't seen no brother like this since "under cover brother". This movie was very good. Then when you take this movie in the context as a black man, then you understand how good this movie is... Apparently you can't spell brother with an "a"... you have to spell it with an "er"... because white people can't deal with a black man spelling stuff the black way... This really was a great movie. I hope people don't change anything which makes the movie lose some value. Besides this movie, I would suggest "Undercover brother" and any other movie the black man likes. I'm not sure that white culture really understands black cultures.. however, this really was a good movie... This movie understands black culture... This comment is hopefully good enough for the white culture...
