Jamie Kennedy stars as Brad "B-Rad" Gluckman, the most unwanted rapper in upscale Malibu, California. B-Rad walks the walk, talks the talk and acts like one bad mutha from the 'hood ... embarrassing his wealthy father, who's a candidate for governor. In a tough-love plan, B-Rad's father hires a couple of out-of-work actors to portray thugs, kidnap Brad and leave him stranded in the real 'hood to scare the hip hop out of him. Now, in a wild ride to Compton and back, the white rapper shows he's too real to quit, wins the heart of hottie Shondra -- and proves he's Malibu's Most Wanted.

Ryan O'Neal gets more laughs in a few scenes than Chris Rock managed in all of Head of State.

Dumb movie, but some funny moments for teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Malibu's Most Wanted is the story of a wealthy white gubernatorial candidate's son who believes he's a rapper "from the streets" ... of Malibu. Much of the humor is derived from satirizing class and cultural differences between relatively privileged white people and African Americans from poorer neighborhoods, and how the two perceive each other. The "N" word is used several times, as is other profanity. There's gunplay -- with fake guns at first, but inevitably culminating in a drive-by that turns into a machine-gun battle between rival gangs. There's a fantasy sequence in which a young woman takes off her top, and in one scene a character mistakenly believes he sees oral sex being performed.
