Movie Discussion – Top Five (2014)


Director: Chris Rock

Cast: Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart

Genre: Comedy

In order to save his carrer, comedian celebrity Andre Allen (Chris Rock) spends the day interviewing with a reporter from the New York times. During the interview Andre is forced to think about the current state of his life and the future of his career.

Right off the bat I can say that Top Five is a hilarious yet incredibly sincere movie. Chris Rock delivers a great performance as the unapologetically blunt Andre Allen. I can’t remember the last time I watched a Chris Rock movie, but I was pleasantly surprised by his acting in this film. The on screen chemistry between Chris Rock and Rosario Dawson is immediately apparent. Their conversations about life, love, and everything in between give the movie a very down to earth feel. Not only does this make the film enjoyable, but very relatable also. Although it came in under the radar Top Five is a decent movie with lots of heart.
