    Has such a cheerfully zingy energy that you keep rooting for it even when its jokes turn flatter than a jump shot at a YMCA pickup game. show more

    Satires like this tend to throw a lot of stuff at the wall, and in Undercover Brother, a surprising amount sticks.

    The movie isn't just hilarious: It's witty and inventive, too, and in hindsight, it isn't even all that dumb. show more
