Chris Rock’s new movie TOP FIVE hits theaters nationwide today! A group of our lovely readers and fans had an opportunity to see an advanced screening of the movie this week and everyone agrees, it is a funny movie! The movie is written and directed by Chris Rock and tells the story of Andre Allen (played by Rock), a New York City comedian-turned film star that feels he isn’t funny anymore and is looking for something different. Along comes a journalist, (played by Rosario Dawson), who follows him around and gives him a reality check and in the midst, he may just find his groove again.
This is an All-Star cast with appearances by Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan, JB Smoove, Cedric the Entertainer, Anders Holm, Jay Pharoah, Michael Che, Sherri Shepherd, Leslie Jones, Brian Regan and Whoopi Goldberg! Producers are Scott Rudin and Eli Bush. I was surprised to see that the co-Producers are Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and Kanye West; with the music being executive produced by QuestLove!
