Storyline

Brad Gluckman or "B-rad" acts like he is from the hood, when he is white and lives in a rich neighborhood in Malibu. He is ruining his fathers election for governor, and he and his crew come up with an idea, to send "B-rad" to the hood to turn him back into a white boy. This movie is filled with laughs and is a great comedy.

A positive look at MMW.
30 April 2003 | by s_rabySee all my reviews

Being a huge fan of `The Jamie Kennedy Experiment,' I eagerly awaited the release of `Malibu's Most Wanted,' a big-screen, feature-length version of one of Jamie's character skits. Often described as a `Candid Camera' meets `Saturday Night Live' type of show, Jamie dons make-up and disguises in effort to pull pranks on trusting people. I have always considered his white rapper character, Brad Gluckman, to be one of my favorites, and always felt he didn't portray Brad, or `B-Rad,' nearly enough as he should.

I was very pleased with how the movie turned out. It was a refreshing escape from the all-too-common war movies and horror-dramas of late. You can't help but feel for the confused white rapper who thinks his rhymes are 'the shiznit' and that he's just as 'down' as anyone else he may encounter on the other side of the tracks.

If I could give it stars, I'd give it five out of 5. On a scale from one to ten, with ten being best, I'd give it a 10. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

Go see "Malibu's Most Wanted" if you're in the mood for a light-hearted, authentic comedy.

And to all of those who haven't accepted "Malibu's Most Wanted" as an awesome movie... Don't be hatin'!
