I went in expecting funny, after all, Top Five is written and directed by Chris Rock, who also stars in the film, but I wasn’t expecting romantic.

That’s the selling point for me with this film. It’s a charming, ultimately, as it is funny.

Rock plays a popular comedian and actor who is trying to make serious films at the same time his fiancé is turning their upcoming wedding into a reality show event.

The title refers to riffs in different scenes when characters list their top five musicians or groups of all time.

I’m not much for lists, but I did think of my top three in terms of love and longevity: Leonard Cohen, The Rolling Stones, and Terri Clark. Don’t expect to find a pattern here.

Chris Rock and co-star Rosario Dawson have great chemistry. No, she doesn’t play the fiancé (that’s Gabrielle Union), but that’s as much of a spoiler as you’ll get from me!

Check out this entertaining film.
