Overview

Undercover Brother began life as an animated series on the Internet. The satirical cartoon was created by novelist and screenwriter John Ridley (Three Kings) for the website /urbanentertainment.com. Ridley wrote the screenplay with Michael McCullers co-writer of the Austin Powers sequels and it was directed by Malcolm D. Lee (Spike Lee's cousin and the writer/director of The Best Man). 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. His activities are discovered by the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. a spy organization devoted to subverting The Man (Robert Trumbull) and his henchman Mr. Feather (Chris Kattan) who use their power over the media to demean black people and destroy racial unity. The spy organization is run by The Chief (Chi McBride) who is constantly screaming at his subordinates. 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. When a popular black political figure General Boutwell (Billy Dee Williams) calls a press conference presumably to announce his presidential candidacy and instead announces that he's opening a chain of fried chicken restaurants the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D. rightly suspects foul play and recruits Undercover Brother to look into it. 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.
