Overview

Malcolm D. Lee's comedy Undercover Brother comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1, while a French soundtrack has also been recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1. Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include commentary from the director as well as from star Eddie Griffin, a blooper reel, an alternate ending, deleted scenes, a music video from Snoop Dogg, and a selection of the original short movies that inspired the feature length film. This is a fine release for what it is, but the same extras are available on a different disc that offers a widescreen transfer of the film. That version is preferable to this one.

Editorial Reviews

Hollywood Reporter - David Hunter
Led by Griffin's smartly nuanced performance and enthusiasm, the cast has a lot of fun with the material.
San Francisco Chronicle
It combines relentless energy with an aura of good nature for a formula that works.
New York Post - Jonathan Freeman
A surprisingly 'solid' achievement by director Malcolm D. Lee and writer John Ridley.
