Nick Cannon plays a bike cop who goes undercover at a high school to solve a high profile murder in the flick, Underclassman - now out on DVD!

Underclassman - Undercover Brother

When a high school student at the elite Westbury School gets murdered, officer Tre Stokes (played by Nick Cannon) is the logical choice to go undercover and solve the crime. He's young enough to fit in with the high school kids, but his track record as a police officer hasn't exactly been great. Reluctantly his boss sends him off on the case, but Tre doesn't do the greatest job of blending in. First of all, he's one of the only black kids in an all white school and isn't worried about pushing his weight around. Plus, his crazy antics get him in more trouble than Winona Ryder at a department store!

Underclassman - Cop Cliches

Underclassman is your basic goofy cop comes out on top movie. If you've seen one, you've seen them all. But, the cool thing about Underclassman is that it kind of takes a hipper look at an old storyline. You've got Nick Cannon as the bumbling police officer, whose jokes get a little corny, but he's so cute, you'll barely remember the jokes anyway! Also, X Men star Shawn Ashmore plays one of the high school kids who Nick befriends and the two make quite the action-hero duo.

Underclassman - Criminal Cop Outs

The biggest downfall of this flick is its predictability. You can see directly around every corner, there are no twists or surprises that you can't already guess. There are a lot of cheesy one liners as well, but if that kind of comedy appeals to you, you might not be annoyed by them.

Underclassman - Bottom Line

If you're looking for a fun flick that has a lot of cheesy laughs and a cute lead character, then Underclassman is worth checking out. But, if you aren't a huge Nick Cannon fan or are more interested in a film with some substance, spend your DVD dough elsewhere.

Underclassman - DVD Features
You won't find anything super cool extra features on the DVD of Underclassman. But the cast auditions are a must-see for Nick Cannon fans and a short flick on the making of Underclassman is worth a watch as well.
