Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Picking up from the 2002 original, it's hard to argue that Undercover Brother 2 is a great movie. However, it is willfully silly, often funny, and only very occasionally do the scattershot digs feel mean-spirited. The barbed script feels like it has something to say at times, with race at the forefront. But the heavy-handed delivery and mixed messages make it hard to fully get behind.

The hit rate for jokes is pleasingly high, and while it's no Airplane! or The Naked Gun, it surpasses the likes of 50 Shades of Black and Scary Movie 5 (the co-director of which, Malcolm D. Lee, helmed the original Undercover Brother).
