Not the film to watch on Saint Patrick's Day
17 March 2015 | by jim4glSee all my reviews

I was excited to see this film come out today. Ironically it's Saint Patrick's day and I was stuck inside the house, at first i said thank you Redbox because nothing New or promising was on TV.

I expected a movie something maybe adjacent to his other film leads like I LOVE MY WIFE or TWO DAYS IN NEW YORK and what i got felt more Art House like a Cassavette's improvised film on many levels, New York City, performers, anti-conformity, sad realism, and even some Charles Mingus music, though that's not unusual for some Chris Rock films.

Was it funny? Yes, in part. Some funny jokes and scenes were very funny, i have horrific images of Cedric The Entertainer burned into my memory. Chris Rock can be funny, I'm a fan of his to a point.

Was there a story? Kind of a weak plot story with an overpowering subplot.

Would i recommend this film? Not to most people. But it is an interesting tale of a middle aged comedian off the spotlight and his struggles.

Am i biased? Probably, i really enjoyed the Chris Rock film TWO DAYS IN NEW YORK, so my hopes of seeing another GREAT comedy of sorts was thwarted. This was little more art house than i had expected and it could've been better.
