Cast overview, first billed only:


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.

Good for the laughs...
4 May 2003 | by (Latham,New York) – See all my reviews

This movie is not for everyone. The story is pretty weak and the humor is very age oriented. The movie was very humorous if you enjoy the white man who thinks he's a black man humor. The most amusing piece of the movie is the dialogue that is spoken by B-Rad (Jaime Kennedy). Jaime Kennedy does a very good job portraying B-Rad,the ghetto like white boy. It comes across as hilarious because everyone finds it amussing except him. IF you are looking for a good laugh, and you like that type of humor, I would recommend going to see this movie.
