Probably not Top Five material
19 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Still while Stand Up comedians have a tough time translating onto the big screen, this is a pretty decent effort. Helped by the ever beautiful and talented Rosario Dawson. The fact that Chris Rock kind of plays himself helps too. Why they chose the title is explained during the running time of the movie, though you'd still expect this to have a different title than what characters ask themselves (list wise).

The jokes keep coming and the viewer is like a spectator of "reality TV show". That's how it feels, but in a good sense. As in "a day in the life of ...". And he even does a short stand up routine. There's bonus material of that in the extras of the Disc. Not the best comedy there is, but more than a decent effort
