"Undercover Brother" fares better as a blaxploitation spoof than as silly-spy shtick.

He goes undercover as an uptight buppie to work for The Man, but his cover is soon blown, and the seductive White She Devil (Denise Richards) is sent in to use her feminine wiles to destroy Undercover Brother.

Lee (Spike Lee's cousin, and the writer/director of The Best Man). See this movie is also like Zoolander, it just embraces the wackiness wholeheartedly and it's just a fun movie.

The film stars Eddie Griffin (of TV's Malcolm and Eddie) as Undercover Brother, he of the gold Cadillac convertible and huge Afro, who uses gadgets and disguises to steal from the rich and give to the poor. Though all this movie has does is make me want Black Dynamite 2 more and more.

White man/black woman pairs don't get as much attention (either positive or negative).

There's a Double Standard in effect here dating back to American slavery: sexual relationships between female slaves and white men were (if not tolerated) left unspoken.

Scathing but not scatological, "Brother's" withering insights are equal opportunity: Here, white guilt is as satirically punishable an offense as propping up prejudice. Literally too funky to be believed, Undercover Brother is an over-the-top hilarious spoof of Blaxploitation and spy films. They include Sistah Girl (Aunjanue Ellis), a beautiful martial artist, Conspiracy Brother (Dave Chappelle), who sees white supremacist plots everywhere, and Smart Brother (Gary Anthony Williams, who provided the voice of Undercover Brother in the cartoon), who supplies the operatives with gadgets and information. Billy Dee Williams and James Brown add credibility to this hilarious parody. The spy organization is run by The Chief (Chi Mc Bride), who is constantly screaming at his subordinates. I didn't like Neil Patrick Harris' character, a lame white boy, much, but loved over the top nemesis Chris Kattan.Sophia: There's nothing romantic about it -- I've never even thought of him that way. Which is surprising, because I've always wondered about that particular myth. Just like white men and Asian women can't get enough of each other, and Gentile guys and Jewish chicks go gaga over one another (or Jewish guys and Gentile chicks), so do black men and white women. This one is a bit more controversial, even to this day in some parts of the world.
