Undercover Brother is a super hero like no other. Funky, sexy and proud to be black, he possesses a cool sense of style, a smooth way with the ladies and an enormous Afro. Dressed for action in his flares, platforms and medallion, he has a hunger for justice and is ready to get down with the groove and take care of business. A hilarious all action cross between Shaft and Austin Powers, Undercover Brother will be available to rent on video and DVD from Universal Pictures Video on 21st July and to buy on 18th August 2003.
Blasted from the past and arriving in a super cool gold Cadillac loaded with gadgets, Undercover Brother (Eddie Griffin) is recruited by a dedicated group of good guys known as the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. to infiltrate a sinister underground movement headed by The Man. Leading the evil perpetrators of Operation Whitewash, The Man has already drugged the first black presidential candidate into thinking that he’d rather sell fried chicken and is now brainwashing the rest of the population.
Joining forces with the sassy Sistah Girl (Aunjaune Ellis), only our hero can stop them but must first undergo an agonising crash course in white culture and trade in his funky wardrobe for a disguise of tennis sweaters and penny loafers as preppy nerd Anton Jackson.
On discovering the deception, the evil leader’s ruthless right arm, Mr Feather (Chris Kattan) dispatches the conspiracy’s sexy secret weapon and black man’s kryptonite, Penelope Snow (Denise Richards) – otherwise known as the White She Devil.
He’s one cool fighter on the streets but can Undercover Brother handle the action between the sheets…. the fate of brothers and sisters worldwide depends upon it.
Starring James Brown in a cameo appearance and featuring an exceptionally funky soundtrack, Undercover Brother is directed by Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man). The screenplay for Undercover Brother was written by John Ridley and Michael McCullers, co-writer of the Austin Powers sequels, and cast credits include Eddie Griffin (Double Take), Chris Kattan (A Night At the Roxbury), Aunjaune Ellis (Men Of Honour) and Denise Richards (The World Is Not Enough, Starship Troopers).
