ulsing with the rhythm of his greatest stand-up, Chris Rock’s Top Five takes things to the next level, reveling in the high and the low, and blending a star-studded comedic romp with an irresistible romance. Top Five digs under the surface of show business, politics, rap, and the exigencies of being black and famous today—holding it all up to the light in the way only Chris Rock can. Mingling echoes of Woody Allen and Dick Gregory with the energy of Kanye West and Jay Z, TOP FIVE is an original and radically new kind of American movie.

Co-directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan tried to do something more with the premise, making it a semi-scathing satire of the entertainment industry. The co-directors were red hot, coming off of Can’t Hardly Wait, and they coached a few scene-stealing performances out of Parker Posey and Alan Cumming.

Rosario Dawson Still Doesn't Understand Why Everyone Hates This Movie
Chris Rock’s Top Five is a strange anomaly. It arrived on the scene with virtually no buzz whatsoever. But as soon as it started screening, it went from “unknown” to “red hot,” and never really cooled off. In fact, up at the Toronto fest, the buzz swirling around the film triggered a massive bidding war.

Chris Rock Crams Every Funny Person He Knows Into This Hysterical Top Five Trailer
As successful as Chris Rock's career as a comedian has been, the same can't really be said for him as either a lead actor or a director. Ensemble films like Grown Ups and animated movies like Madagascar have certainly raised his profile, but let's also not forget that his record includes a number of forgettable titles. This history doesn't seem to be causing any studios pause regarding Rock's newest film, however, as the comedy is starting a huge bidding war at the Toronto International Film Festival.
