Adequate "com", with some "rom"

'Top Five' is Chris Rock's third directorial effort - and it is better than 'Head of State'! I love Rock as a stand-up comedian, but I feel like he still hasn't quite got it all together in terms of acting/directing. This is by no means a bad film - it's just not his, or anyone involved, best work. It's partially-autobiographical: comedian turns actor, cashes in on simple family-friendly films, gets pigeon-holed, tries to branch out into 'serious' films, flops. In reality, it's almost an Eddie Murphy biopic - hugely successful comedian, drug/alcohol issues, simple family-friendly films ('The Nutty Professor', 'Doctor Dolittle', 'Shrek'), then 'serious' films ('Dreamgirls', 'A Thousand Words').

Andre (Rock) starts off as an unlikeable, self-obsessed celebrity, engaged to an even more unlikable reality-TV "star" (Union), but is interviewed by Chelsea (Dawson) for an article and lets his guard down. The two of them conversing are some of the better scenes, as Dawson is such a great disarming actress - impossible to not love. You get some (hopefully not based too much on reality) anecdotes and a few funny moments. There's room for plenty of good actors/friends-of-Rock's - Smoove, Tracy Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, Romany Malco, Kevin Hart, Adam Sandler & Jerry Seinfeld - but none of them get enough time to do anything too funny/great.

The eponymous "top five" is the question Rock asks others to see who their favourite rappers are - purportedly to 'test' their credibility. I wish Rock has focussed a little more on his top five attributes - being funny, multiplied by five! The film has a decent romantic angle and a good ending, but it not great, nor poor.

Slowly gains momentum along the way

This movie started unevenly: odd cameos and unreal moments. The longer it went, the more I cared. Rock managed to make this character an actual person in actual moments. That's when it got funny. And worth watching. Here's hoping Chris Rock builds from here.

just make it a little funnier..

Top Five

Chris Rock's hints of amusing perspective towards the details of the world is present in each of its character and is also the reason why Top Five is one of those rare features that has a unique concept, edgy characters, funny dialogues and a twisted love story.
