Chris Rock’s TOP FIVE is an impressive film that smartly handles modern celebrity, alcoholism, and personal authenticity. Rock, who wrote, directed, and acted in the film, does go for the easy laugh in some scenes, but surprises you with scenes that are sensitive and thought provoking. He has also brought together an impressive cast. But if there is any criticism, it is that Rock, who plays comedienne Andre Allen in the film, doesn’t have the acting chops to become that character—you see only Chris Rock! It doesn’t help that he blends fiction with real life by casting Jerry Seinfeld, Whoopi Goldberg, and Adam Sandler as themselves. That said, you will go for the laughs, but remember the film’s ideas.
