Undercover Brother
First screened in February 2003
Director: Malcolm D. Lee. Cast: Eddie Griffin, Aunjanue Ellis, Denise Richards, Dave Chappelle, Gary Anthony Williams, Chi McBride, Billy Dee Williams, Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Kattan, Jack Noseworthy, Robert Trumbull. Screenplay: John Ridley and Michael McCullers (based on the internet series and story by John Ridley).

Twitter Capsule: Higher laugh ratio for me than Austin Powers, if prone to similar sense of a gag eventually running its course.

VOR:   Fresher than most fellow spoofs. Descended, too, from interesting cultural-critique films of 70s like Watermelon Man.
