Storyline

A white faceless corporate despot known only as "The Man", has the power to unleash a terrifying top-secret weapon: an irresistibly packaged psycho-hallucinogenic drug that will reduce the entire population to mindless zombies. but black folks have soul. But with enough funky sense of style, a smooth way with the ladies and an absolute hunger for justice, with his Bruce Lee moves, Cadillac attitude and an arsenal of outrageous disguises and gadgets, Undercover Brother is recruited by the group of Good Guys, know as the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. an all-black justice league to foil the Man's plan to derail a Colin Powell-like presidential candidate, and Undercover Brother's undercover exploits keep the slim plot moving. But while he and his sassy cat-fighting partner known as Sistah Girl tries to find out what's going on, the leader's ruthless right arm, Mr. Feather, discovers the conspiracy's sexy secret weapon, Penelope Snow.

Trivia

Ironically, while the movie's protagonists are African-American and the opening credits track African-Americans in the mainstream pop culture through the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, the movie opens with "Pick Up The Pieces". The song, while a pop funk classic, was performed by the Average White Band, a group of Caucasian Scotsman whose music and soulful singing style were heavily influenced by African-American funk and soul.

Goofs

She-devil's henchmen's motorcycles are both stock 2002 Honda CBR600's but when one of the bikes crash to the wall and explodes it is a circa 1997 Kawasaki ZX-6R with clearly visible stunt equipment (special tires, handlebar) fitted and the rear fairing painted to look like a Honda CBR. See more »

It Tears the Roof Off the Mother Sucker!
29 June 2002 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

I loved "Undercover Brother!" It's the movie "Pootie Tang" should have been! I found it over-the-top, laugh-out-loud funny! Eddie Griffin scores as Undercover Brother, an afrolicious version of Austin Powers. And Chris Kattan is hilarious as Mr. Feather, an evil underling of The Man, devoted to the white man's dominance, but succumbing to hip-hop influence. Other funny performances came from Dave Chappelle as the paranoid Conspiracy Brother, and Neil Patrick Harris as the clueless caucasian intern Lance. Some viewers may complain about the black stereotypes, but you must look at it as black actors and filmmakers laughing at themselves. It's all a "solid" laugh!
