Reel Talk: Top Five

Synopsis: A comedian tries to make it as a serious actor when his reality-TV star fiancée talks him into broadcasting their wedding on her TV show.

CogNegro's Review: Is it Chris Rock's best movie ever? Yes! But then again, one would be comparing Top Five to the likes of Head of State, Down to Earth and the guilty pleasure extraordinaire: Pootie Tang! Nevertheless,when ever the dialogue and pacing become a bit jejune ,Rock is able to infuse a jolt of hilarity,ethos, and even social commentary into what could have easily been another formulaic,urban "dramedy." (B)

  1. 1. Rolling my eyes at "Pootie Tang"
    2. Looking for the next possible opportunity to use "jejune" in conversation.
