YMMV / Undercover Brother

  • Crosses the Line Twice: Lance's gory dispatching of enemy mooks is so over the top it becomes ridiculous.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: The final fight of Undercover Brother versus Mr. Feather. And the way Mr. Feather is finally dispatched.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: If you like funk, every battle sequence has this.
  • Genius Bonus: The General's Chicken commercial offer of a free bottle of malt liquor is even funnier when you remember that Billy Dee Williams did commercials for Colt .45
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The entire bit about a black Presidential candidate suddenly opening a fried chicken fast food franchise is given a more serious undertone when some people attempted to make Barack Obama brand fried chicken fast food restaurants.
  • He Really Can Act: Chris Kattan finally employs his physical comedy skills to good use, and adds a surprising dollop of comedic timing.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Dave Chappelle exclaiming that he wants to join the Klan (see his rant in Token White).
    • Neil Patrick Harris congratulating Undercover Brother on (also) having sex with a white woman.
      • Having Neil Patrick Harris's Berserk Button being called "sissy" (though it's certainly not a kind thing to say to anyone anyway) is an HIH since he came out 4 years later.
    • Sistah Girl mockingly calls Undercover Brother "Bruce Leroy" when she sneaks into his apartment. Eddie Griffin would later star in My Baby's Daddy, with a baby character named Bruce Leroy.
    • The movie features a Black man being tricked into giving up his presidential bid to run a fast food chain. Years later, a Black owner of a fast food chain would campaign to be president.
