Let’s go back to 2003 for this classic Jamie Kennedy movie starring Anthony Anderson, (before Law & Order, before Black-Ish) Kal Penn, Ryan O’Neal and more in this great cast.
The son of a wealthy politician (Ryan O’Neal), Brad Gluckman (Jamie Kennedy) tries to emulate urban street culture and aspires to be a rapper, going by the name of “B-Rad.” In order to discourage Brad from pursuing his thug-inspired antics, his dad hires two African-American actors, Sean (Taye Diggs) and PJ (Anthony Anderson), to pose as gang members and introduce the naïve youth to real ghetto life.
Things don’t go as planned when it becomes clear that Sean and PJ are as sheltered as Brad ’cause they ain’t really down.
Budgeted at 15 million dollars, the movie brought in over 34 million dollars.
