Chris Rock has been mostly dominating Internet headlines this week for his impressive interviews in New York magazine, Grantland, The Hollywood Reporter, and the New Yorker. His opinions have generated so much ink that it's almost possible to have missed the fact that he's out promoting his new movie, Top Five, which looks like it will connect with audiences in much the same way his comments on fame, race, and success and progress in America have connected with readers. Anyone who has been a fan of Rock's knows that on the big screen, things either hit really well or, uh, don't quite as much. This one, about a fading comedy superstar trying to stay funny and relevant while staying sober, looks like it will hit.
