Director: Chris Rock
Starring: Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson

Comedian Andre Allen (Chris Rock) turns his back on a successful stand-up comedy career for the limelight of working in motion pictures. While promoting his latest film which is destined to be a box office disaster, he is interviewed by journalist Chelsea Brown (Rosario Dawson). A romance builds, and she guides him back to where he belongs - in stand-up comedy.

Chris Rock writes, directs and stars in this comedy which surprisingly had critics raving, but ultimately and more importantly had movie-goers staying away in droves.

Comedy is the most difficult genre to write in film or television, and Top Five exemplifies this.

The problem is that it's not funny. All the laughter is on screen where only the actors thought the dialogue they were delivering was outrageously funny.

The occasional low key chuckle was evident, but the deafening silence from the audience was overwhelming, with too many dull and unfunny moments for a so-called comedy.

Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler and Whoopi Goldberg who performed in a short comic segment and a couple of gross toilet humour sequences briefly retrieved the audience from comatose but ultimately it was too little too late.
