Brad Gluckman (Kennedy) is a wannabe rap star from Malibu who acts and talks like he's from the "'hood." Concerned that his son is going to embarrass him during his campaign to become the governor of California, Brad's wealthy father and his campaign manager (Underwood), hire two trained actors (Diggs and Anderson) to disguise themselves as "real life gangstaz", and kidnap his son, dropping him off in the "real hood" in Compton, in an effort to scare the ghettofied attitude and behavior out of him.

Trivia

The rapping scene where Brad angers the audience is a spoof of a similar scene from the 2002 movie 8 Mile starring white rapper, Eminem. See more »

Goofs

The gunfight in the park supposedly takes place in South Central Los Angeles, with a view of the L.A. skyline in the background. But in fact, there is no view of the skyline of Los Angeles from anywhere in South Central. The view of downtown L.A. from that angle can only be viewed from Echo Park. See more »

Quotes

PJ: If you jacked it, how come you got a receipt?
B-Rad: I stole that too.

Very Funny But Just Plain Stupid
23 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Malibu's Most Wanted is one of the craziest films of 2003 Jamie Kennedy delivers a hilarious performance as Brad B-rad Gluckman a white rapper who acts like a black rapper. His father (O'Neal) wants to run for governor but his son's antics are hurting his chances of winning so he hires actors to be gangsters who kidnap B-rad and try to scare him into being a white man again. Regina Hall is amusing as Shondra who in the beginning thinks he's strange but towards the end she falls for him and accepts him for who he truly is. Malibu's Most Wanted is one of those films that leaves you feeling funny and stupid all together but has some hilarious scenes and can be enjoyed by anyone who prefers this brand of comedy. I give it 7 out of 10 stars.
