A Well-written Chris Rock Movie; Observational as well as Hilarious
8 February 2015 | by akash_sebastianSee all my reviews

Written and Directed by Chris Rock, 'Top Five' is a hilarious romantic-comedy, filled with whip-smart observations on people, fame, identity, alcoholism (and will power). Other than Anders Holm's clichéd closeted boyfriend character (but with unique and hilarious situations), the two lead characters, Andre and Chelsea, are written quite well; they're unique and interesting, and the spark between them is undeniable. Even the supporting characters have fascinating personalities and dialogues. So basically, it's Chris Rock's writing (which is as good as his stand-ups) which makes the movie fun to watch; the movie is semi-autobiographical, and is Rock's best role on screen.

The 'Planet of the Apes'-Martin Luther King Jr. assassination analogy was quite intriguing and hysterical. The entire scene in the hotel room with the two call girls and the other guy was really a well-written situation; quite rib-tickling. Guest appearances by Adam Sandler and Jerry Seinfeld were amusing, too.

The acting is commendable and suit the characters perfectly. Miss Dawson, with her looks and her personality, is incredible in her role. The Cinderella-element in the movie was interesting, and the climax was just perfect; you can't help but have a smile on your face.
