Ok, I must admit, this definitely isn't a brain teaser and it's not even anything you remotely have to think about to get.

I bought this DVD for my son along with a few others that he wanted for his birthday and I couldn't believe I was actually cracking up laughing at this movie. It's very funny! It's one of those movies you roll your eyes at and only watch because your child wants you to watch with them and then you find yourself starting to enjoy it yourself and you look at each other and laugh.

This movie is a lot of fun and has great comedic value. You might even catch yourself sayin' Wazzzup...after it's over. lol I'm glad it was a movie my family could share and one we all could enjoy.

Jamie Kennedy has shed his identity as Brad Gluckman, son of wealthy Malibu residents Bill (Ryan O'Neal) and Bess Gluckman (Bo Derek) to become LA pseudo gansta-rapper B-Rad. When his father runs for governor of California, B-Rad's unscripted appearances at his campaign rallies (supposedly to help his father appeal to the less priviledged voters to whom B-Rad claims that he relates) cause great embarrassment to his parents and consternation among the members of Bill's campaign staff. Blair Underwood, Bill's chief aide, then hires two black actors who appeared in a campaign commercial to "scare B-Rad white" by kidnapping him and holding him hostage while posing as gangstas from south central LA. They accomplish this by enlisting the help of the beautiful Shondra (Regina Hall). While there are some clever rap parodies and occasionally funny dialog in the first half of the movie, it drags a little while setting the scene for the hilarious second half.
The kidnappers, Sean (Taye Diggs) and P.J. (Anthony Anderson), are clueless about the gangsta culture they supposedly represent and thus have to prepare for the assignment by rehearsing their lines just like any other acting job. Then, things get complicated when B-Rad catches on to the scheme but doesn't realize that the script has changed and that he is in actual danger when Shondra's jealous ex-boyfriend Tec (Damien Dante Wayans) attempts to kidnap him. Snoop Dog even gets into the act as a gangsta rap version of Stuart Little.
Some of the rap parodies are very funny, even to viewers such as myself whose musical taste doesn't include hip hop. And the satire is at times right on, such as B-Rad rapping about "Living in the Bu", the varied members of his group, and the unsuccessful efforts of Sean and P.J.

You Can't Catch:

Malibu's Most Wanted

"I'm Malibu's Most Wanted ya'll!" That was a quote from the main character of the movie "Malibu's Most Wanted." The main character's name is Brad Gluckman, but he prefers to be called B-rad G. He is white but he pretends to be black. His dad, Bill Gluckman, is running for governor of California and he is embarrassed by the way he acts. So he sends him to a getto called South Central to try and get him to act civilized.

First it is a great comedy because B-rad thinks he can rap but he really can't. He goes to a club and raps, and he makes a lot of black people mad and they threw him into a dumpster with fish and pizza.

Next it has a lot of action because he gets car jacked by two black acting like gangsters. He gets kidnapped twice. Once by the guys who carjacked him. Then once by a real gang. He is in a gang-shooting between two real gangs.

Finally it has a good ending because he gets to act the way he wants. He gets the girl who opens her beauty salon. His dad gets elected governor. So every thing works out good for B-rad.

Some of us white people may want to be black. Some black people may want to be white. So you don't always get to be want you want. So don't act different, just be yourself.

"Malibu's Most Wanted" is a good movie because it teaches you to be your self whether people like you or not. Also if you follow your dreams you can be anything you want to be.

I think anybody who likes action, comedy, or a happy ending should defiantly watch this movie. Anybody 9 years old and up would like this movie. I think both men and women would like this also. People who like adventure and a lot of romance would not like this, even though it has a little bit of romance.

Lastly remember what I said, if you follow your dreams there s no limit to what you can do. Also just be yourself and nobody else, even if people don't like you.

Jamie Kennedy nailed this one on the head. "Malibu's Most Wanted" exposes a part of our society that has become increasingly annoying over the years: White kids with wealthy parents who think that just because they wear "urban" clothes and listen to hip-hop, they are somehow "street." Others have picked on Eminem for doing this, but that guy actually lived in a rough neighborhood in tough confines. He has "street" cred. Most of these other punks wouldn't know what it's like to be poor, untrusted, even hated, because of their social status or skin color. It's these same kids whose parents bail them out every time they wreck their Navigator or Escalade they mommy bought for them.

In this social comedy, Kennedy plays B-Rad, a wealthy Jewish kid whose father is running for governor. B-Rad "drops rhymes" and "represents" the best of Malibu. He thinks he's "street," all the while driving around in a vehicle with vanity plates, a fancy sound system, etc. He hangs out with his "crew" at the Malibrew coffee house. B-Rad's father entrusts his son's unusual behavior to his campaign manager, who promptly hires two professionally trained actors to "scare" B-Rad white again. Unfortunately, the dynamic duo he chose are perhaps "whiter" than B-Rad. They are played with great comic timing by Anthony Anderson and Taye Diggs. Some of the best parts of the film are when these two play out the stereotypical "white" side of hip-hop by asking the DJ at a hardcore rap club if he has any Will Smith to get "jiggy" with. Another hilarious scene involves a Korean family protecting their shop in Compton.

The obvious intention of this film is to expose racial stereotypes and make them comedic in the process.
