Trivia

In May 2016, while he was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Tyler Perry said that the idea for his real October 2016 movie titled Boo! A Madea Halloween came from a joke in Top Five. Even though that reference in Top Five was making fun of the "Madea" series, Perry thought it was funny, and when Lionsgate approached Perry and suggested that the joke could be the basis of a real Madea movie, Perry built a premise around the fake title that Chris Rock had invented for a Madea horror movie.

a few funny bits
16 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Andre Allen (Chris Rock) is a standup comedian who became famous for a movie franchise character Hammy The Bear. He wants to stop playing Hammy and do serious roles. He tries to promote his historical drama about a Haitian revolutionary but people only want to talk about Hammy or his impending reality-TV wedding with Erica Long (Gabrielle Union). He reluctantly does an interview with New York Times reporter Chelsea Brown (Rosario Dawson) as she follows him for the day.

There are some funny moments but in general, the characters feel fake. Chris Rock never really stopped being Chris Rock except when he dives into the drinking. Rosario Dawson is lovely but I don't believe her romantic chemistry with him. I rather she be his sponsor than his girlfriend. After she reconnects with him, she needs to bring him to a meeting rather than a comedy store. When Seinfeld, Sandler and Whoopi show up, it feels like the movie is trying too hard and not terribly funny. Andre's family is funnier. There is an interesting movie here but it takes a couple of wrong steps.
