Chris Rock is a Comedian turned actor who wants to branch out into more serious projects. Enter Chris Rock on the night of big premier on a press junket in New York & a couple weeks away from his Marriage to a no talent socialite star in the vein of Kim Kardashian which is going to be televised all over the world. He meets a reporter from the "Times" who's going to interview him. She winds up spending the entire with him during which they each share flashbacks about how they got into recovery. Really? It's obvious they're starting to fall in love when a stupid turn of events dashes their budding romance.... In the end an even dumber couple of lines of dialogue "hint" at them conquering the absurd conflict and resolving to get together. The End.
I laughed once. Total formulaic garbage. The dialogue is terribly unnatural and forced. They say working with a great actor ups everyone's game? Well Rock's (and most of the casts) complete lack of acting skills crushes everyone's game. He should tried casting his movie with ACTORS? Throw in nudity for sake of nudity. And a cast stacked with (non actor) stars that does nothing but distract from the suspension of belief. This movie garbage at it's most stereotypical Hollywood level.
Mark my words...Chris Rock's 15 minutes of fame is over. I'd be surprised if he ever works in Hollywood again. The film was not funny, not sweet, not romantic, not dramatic. It was nothing more than an sliced together series of poorly written dialogues, stupid plot points & cameos, with a bunch of nudity sprinkled in for good measure. Exit Chris Rock.
