Quotes

Chris Rock: Let's face it. White people can't box. Black people box better. Puerto Ricans... even better. It seems the lower you go on the social ladder, the better the boxer. If there's a Puerto Rican who is a good boxer, there's a Native American waiting to kick his ass.

Okay, but misses two good Rock skits!
25 September 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I thought this was an okay DVD, a good portion of the DVD is with Chris Rock as a Weekend Update correspondent. His updates on Arizona and Black VP are very good! The other skits are pretty good as well, but im my opinion this DVD missed two classic skits. First is the choice of Nat X in this DVD. They should have put the one with Vanilla Ice (Kevin Bacon) on this DVD. In my opinion that was a classic! Instead they put the one with Colin Powell (Meadows), Tori Spelling (Oteri), and Mike Tyson (Morgan).

Also the selection of the "new" version of I'm Chillin' kind of confused me. To me, I'm Chillin' is Rock (Onski) and Farley; I was a little disappointed not to see that combo of I'm Chillin' in this Best of Chris Rock DVD. But overall this is a good DVD, I just thought it didn't put in some of Chris Rock's best skits which downgrades this DVD a bit.
