Apparently even Chris Rock has noticed that his movies haven't captured the spark of his brilliant stand-up. To address that, he wrote, directed and stars in this story of a top comic with a mediocre film career (his biggest hits featured him as a fast-talking grizzly-bear cop named Hammie). As he opens up to a magazine's profile writer (played by Rosario Dawson) he begins to get in touch with his comedic roots. The film also stars Gabrielle Union, with cameos from a Who's Who of comedians. Early buzz on this one has been promising.
