Undercover Brother was underated

I saw this movie tonight. Unlike some other satires, this movie was hilarious. A shame it didn't do better at the box office. Austin Powers: Goldmember should have been more like this one.

I showed it to my little brother today. It is pretty damn funny.

I actually thought it was overrated. I heard many good things about it and picked it up as a blind buy, and was a little let down. Ususally i love silly comedies like this, but this one for whatever reason didn't particularly strike me. I should get around to watching it again

It gets better near the end.

Black people can't stand mayonnaise. Where did they come up with that one?

I went in hoping it would be consistently funny. I haven't laughed that hard at a movie theater since.

I rented it hoping it would live up to what I read about it, I thought it was horrible, none of the gags really got me, so I guess I am going to have to disagree, overated imo

Yep, this one really hit all the marks for me----much sharper than any of the Austin Powers movies, IMO.

<=== Black...hates mayo! :-) LOVE Miracle Whip! I don't know why but a lot of my friends are the exact same way. Weird.

I can honestly say that I too haven't laughed that hard at a theater since. I'm not sure if I would find it as funny again, though.

Any movie that can make 'Good Morning' into a racist comment gets high marks. Chappelle is gold in any movie he's in.

I'm watching it again to see if I can laugh after having seen it once to warrant a DVD purchase.

Loved the part where the girls are fighting and the guys are fighting. The girls start doing the les thing and the guys stop dead in their tracks to watch.

Even Doogie was funny.

Overrated flick, but still entertaining.

Yes, we all love the white she devil.

Eddie Griffin is a funny mofo, beats Chappelle IMO. Dysfunctional Family had me rolling every time.

I about fell of my couch when Lance went all nuts and took care of those security guards!!

I skipped it during it's theatrical run, but caught it on HBO/Starz and watched it every time it was on.
