Top Five

A sellout comic actor (Chris Rock), star of a big budget action series where he fights crime in a bear suit and currently shooting a reality television show which follows preparations for his wedding, wants to be taken seriously for his next project and must examine his career and life when he is profiled by a writer (Rosario Dawson) from the New York Times. Top Five is broad, lazy, and largely unfunny satire, written and directed by Rock, who is still appealing in the lead. The beautiful Dawson comes off as incredibly irritating.
