Top Five (2014)


Chris Rock
Rosario Dawson
Gabrielle Union

Directed by Chris Rock

A thought provoking and funny screenplay that anyone (18 and above) can sit through and enjoy. Written, directed and starring Chris Rock as Andre Allen a comedian, whose life was plagued by many issues, enough to shoot a movie, which Rock did.

Rock covered in much detail the lifestyle of being a celebrity, the ups and downs the good times and the bad. We saw the issues Andre faced with paparazzi, the problem of trying to remain relevant and how difficult it is to be confident of yourself when you rely on drugs and booze to perform.

Rock’s, well detailed screenplay may be tagged as slow, but you cannot watch this movie and claim you didn’t laugh. There were many incidents in the movie that will get you to think, but the way Rock’s character fell for Rosario Dawson’s made me laugh as it seems too short a time for someone to fall in love with another.

They met when she came for an interview and they fell in love after talking in-depth on his life. I haven’t fallen in love that much, but I know it doesn’t happen like that, because if it did… I pity Chelsea Brown (Rosario Dawson) when Andre goes for another interview with a pretty lady.

With that aside you will love the way Top Five goes and appreciate the cameos, we had Jerry Seinfeld, DMX, Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg and many more.

Andre Allen is a comedian, who is trying to get the world to take him seriously after strings of success playing Hammy The Bear, in which he plays a cop in a bear suit. Andre decided to be clean and get off drugs and alcohol, causing him to doubt in himself and wondering if he can still be funny without the drugs. Then decided to make a new movie Uprize, in which he portrays Dutty Boukman, a prominent figure during the Haitian Revolution.

Uprize isn't well received by the public, and a reporter Chelsea Brown from the New York Times was sent to interview Andre as he prepares for his wedding to his reality-TV star fiancée (Gabrielle Union).

The interview revealed much more on the life of both the interviewer and the interviewee, sparks start flying between the two.

The movie’s name comes from when Rock asks his family and friends to list their Top Five rappers. There is a question for you:

What Is Your Top Five?
