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.

Funny parody
30 May 2004 | by Jim-512See all my reviews

I am sick of "white-man demonizing" movies, and usually wont watch them. This movie, however, was a parody on the whole. It pokes fun at both sides, and with successful comedic relief. I don't know how it rates in textbook guidelines for proper film protocol. All I know is that I chuckled all the way through it, which is rare. It was funny and fun. (The mayonnaise slurping sound effect really struck my funny bone for some reason). A lot of thought went in to the details, I think. And they pulled it off without a lot of foul language and sexual content. Good job in my opinion.

The Man (I hate mayo too)
