More Details

Reviews:
"[T]he movie’s structure resembles the segues of a stand-up set, with a routine about what it’s like to be black and a celebrity leading into a bit about pop culture and then some material about marriage, family, and addiction..." - 12/11/2014 A.V. Club


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Rock delivers the laughs, big ones, laced with razor-sharp observations on everything from pop culture to racial politics." - 12/11/2014 Rolling Stone


"[The film has] finally given Rock the big-screen role this stand-up great deserves....As writer, director and star, he has a great deal of control, and he uses it wisely and wittily." - 12/11/2014 Los Angeles Times


"[Rock] not only makes a case for why he should be a bona fide movie star, he also proves he's a writer-director to be reckoned with." -- Grade: A- - 12/16/2014 Entertainment Weekly


"[F]ast and blisteringly funny....A romantic comedy that’s also an extended riff on art, identity, authenticity and what it means to be a black entertainer..." - 12/12/2014 New York Times


"This is a smart, savvy film with sabre-sharp one-liners, a half-dozen terrific supporting turns, one of the best scores of the year, a winning romance and a heartfelt and authentic performance from Rock." - 12/11/2014 Chicago Sun-Times
