Storyline

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 what it is
27 April 2003 | by lineciphaSee all my reviews

It was pretty funny. You have to like Jamie Kennedy though. It had a very simple plot, but for entertainment purposes, I would definitely recommend it. The whole movie is a lot easier to appreciate if you're familiar with his sketch about JXM the rapper.
