A return to form for Chris Rock

Chris Rock is a very talented comedian. He is hilarious and quite insightful. However, his career in films has been lukewarm with some big blotches like the Grown Ups movies. With Top Five, he rectifies that by delivering a smart, funny, and surprisingly dramatic film.

Good: Chris Rock really delivers a Woody Allen style film in his own way by mixing drama with comedy very well. It tackles celebrity, alcoholism, and the need to reinvent oneself with depth, but it never gets in the way of the comedy. Speaking of comedy, the movie delivers a lot of laughs with a few special gutbusters in there from some cameos. I mean, the movie made Cedric the Entertainer funny which I thought was an impossible feat. It moves at a good pace and the cast is great all around. Props to Rosario Dawson as she gave a good performance as she traded jabs with Rock and Gabrielle Union who brings some depth to a reality star character and makes her endearing.

Overall, this is a return to form for Rock in terms of comedy, but it also serves as a spotlight regarding his dramatic sensibilities also.

Some Things Work--Most Don't

Chris Rock, who wrote and directed this film, can be very funny. However, this movie wanders all over the place, and when it doesn't work it can be really awful.

Why throw in completely over-the-top, unfunny, and highly explicit sex scenes when they seem to come out of left field, and not really congruent with the rest of the story. I much preferred the chemistry between Rock and the superbly talented and beautiful Rosario Dawson, which, I thought, worked really well. Gabrielle Union, J. B. Smoove, and Leslie Jones also added well to the mix here.

All in all, as mentioned, the movie is way too choppy, with some really cringe inducing scenes, and overall a disappointment.

a few funny bits

Andre Allen (Chris Rock) is a standup comedian who became famous for a movie franchise character Hammy The Bear. He wants to stop playing Hammy and do serious roles. He tries to promote his historical drama about a Haitian revolutionary but people only want to talk about Hammy or his impending reality-TV wedding with Erica Long (Gabrielle Union). He reluctantly does an interview with New York Times reporter Chelsea Brown (Rosario Dawson) as she follows him for the day.

There are some funny moments but in general, the characters feel fake. Chris Rock never really stopped being Chris Rock except when he dives into the drinking. Rosario Dawson is lovely but I don't believe her romantic chemistry with him. I rather she be his sponsor than his girlfriend. After she reconnects with him, she needs to bring him to a meeting rather than a comedy store. When Seinfeld, Sandler and Whoopi show up, it feels like the movie is trying too hard and not terribly funny. Andre's family is funnier. There is an interesting movie here but it takes a couple of wrong steps.
