Undercover Brother

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Eddie Griffin, Chris Kattan, Dave Chappelle, Neil Patrick Harris, Denise Richards, Billy Dee Williams; Director: Malcolm Lee; Author: Michael McCullers, John Ridley; Producer (person): Brian Grazer; Release Date Wide: 05/31/2002; Runtime (in minutes): 83; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Universal

As a soul-power-obsessed crime fighter trying to stick it to the man, Griffin is a gleeful anachronism, one ripe for some satirical (and sartorial) ribbing; alas, most of the gags are as old as his wide collar. Brother may be marketed as an Afro-addled answer to Austin Powers, but it has far more in common with that franchise’s increasingly lackluster sequels.
