Trivia

Originally set for a US theatrical release in 2004. Then two massive waves of layoffs were sustained at Miramax and Dimension, and the infamous Disney and Miramax split reached it's height. This film thus remained in the Miramax vaults unreleased during this time of uncertainty. When the Disney and Miramax divorce was finally completed, numerous films under the Miramax and Dimension label were finally released theatrically. See more »

Nothing extraordinary...
22 December 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Underclassman" is not a particularly memorable or impressive movie. It is sort of a clone version of "Beverly Hills Cop" mixed with "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air". Now, you might think that it would make for a good combination, so did I. But the movie doesn't offer anything new or innovative that hasn't already been done or shown in the aforementioned titles.

The story is about a reckless undercover police man named Tracey who is sent into a private school to unravel a stolen car ring.

Story-wise, then "Underclassman" is adequate, just don't expect to be blown away by anything overly impressive. If you enjoyed the aforementioned titles then you will enjoy this movie to some extend. I just thought that this movie was a bit weak.

The acting in the movie was good, though. And it was nice to see Cheech Marin in the movie. Just a shame he didn't have more time on the screen. I bought this movie because of Kelly Hu, and was disappointed with the short amount of screen time she was given, especially when she was on the front cover of the DVD movie.

This is the type of movie that you will watch once, bag and tag it, and only to forget about it as it collects dust on the shelf.
