Unconventional times call for unconventional men and nobody does unconventional better than the man known as 'Undercover Brother'.
With a funky sense a style, a smooth way with the ladies and an absolute hunger for justice, this man of action has lived by his own rules since the day he heard his first Parliament Funkadelic groove. Fuelled by the funk, he became the man he is today, Robin Hood of the 'hood, ready to step in, give the downtrodden a hand and fight the powers-that- be. With his Bruce Lee moves, Cadillac attitude and an arsenal of outrageous disguises and gadgets, he is patiently waiting for that one really heavy mission. He knows it's coming.
Imaginative as he is, not even Undercover Brother could have concocted a scheme as brazen as the one that now threatens life as we know it. A sinister underground movement has begun unleashing a terrifying top-secret weapon: an irresistibly packaged psycho-hallucenegic drug that will reduce the entire population to mindless zombies. However, a dedicated group of Good Guys, known as the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D., has been tracking their activities and is now braced for a showdown. But they know that a fight this big means they must produce their own secret weapon: the one crime fighter cool enough to infiltrate the enemy on the streets or between the sheets.
And thus Undercover Brother (Eddie Griffin) trades in his Afro, shades and platforms for khakis, horn-rims and penny loafers to pose as preppy nerd Anton Jackson at a multinational conglomerate. But while he and his sassy partner Sistah Girl (Aunjanue Ellis) try to find out What's Going On, the evil leader's ruthless right arm, Mr. Feather (Chris Kattan), discovers their deception and dispatches the conspiracy's sexy secret weapon Penelope Snow (Denise Richards) to take care of business.
