Top Five
director:
Chris Rock
cast:
Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Gabreille Union

On the release day of his latest vanity project, a former-comic-turned-artiste (Rock) is with a reporter (Dawson), walking the walk and talking the talk in New York as he thinks about life in terms of comedy, maturity, and his impending marriage. The film is littered with cameos — Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg, Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer, Jerry Seinfeld — that vary the comedic styles and content as Rock (as director, writer, and star) helms what is surely one of the best midlife crises/celebrity satire films since Alvy Singer met Annie Hall, traveled westward in search of fame only to find Jeff Goldblum acting as a mouthpiece for the industry as he casually announces, “I forgot my mantra.” Universally lauded as Chris Rock at his best.
