Watch The UnderDoggs
Calling all Snoop Dogg fans. The rapper, philanthropist and Martha Stewart bestie is headlining the new film, The UnderDoggs, out January 26 on Prime Video. Snoop plays Jaycen “Two Js” Jennings, a self-involved former NFL star whose selfish nature gets him sentenced to community service. There, he stumbles upon an unruly peewee football team in his hometown, trying to make a touchdown. One of the kids turns out to be the son of Two J’s former flame, Cherise, played by Tika Sumpter. The kids aren’t impressed with Two J’s wealth or former status, and they let him know it with some words and thoughts I wouldn’t expect to come out of the mouth of a 10 year old.
Despite the naughty words and a few scenes of underage drinking, this is a movie with a heart. It shows how when someone devotes theirs to another, they end up changing lives. There’s a message at the beginning of the film addressing the cursing throughout the film, and I would agree—this kids’ sports flick isn’t for your youngest children. But mature teens and up will enjoy seeing Snoop match off-color words and wit with the adorable kid cast.
Fun Fact: The movie was inspired by Snoop’s real-life non-profit, Snoop Youth Football League, which brings sports to kids in underserved communities.
