Malibu's Most Wanted

Malibu's Most Wanted ★★ 2003 (PG-13)

Kennedy brings his TV character Brad “B-Rad” Gluckman to the big screen with minimal success. “B-Rad” is a rich white wannabe rapper from Malibu, whose dad (O'Neal) is running for governor. When he embarrasses pop at a campaign stop, dad takes drastic action. He hires classically trained black actors Sean and PJ to kidnap Brad to South Central for a little “Scared White” therapy. Since the middle class actors have no idea how to be “gangsta” they enlist the help of Sean's cousin Shondra, who promptly falls for Brad, angering her ex boyfriend Tec (yet another Wayans), who lives the thug life. Shows flashes of the clever, bit ing satire it could've been, but fades in the end by backing off on some of the wry observations it makes early on. Diggs and Anderson click, and O'Neal is amusingly smarmy. 86m/C VHS, DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
