Movie Review: 'Best of the Chris Rock Show'

Posted on

Watch Rock prowling the stage in a concert routine or talking with his hands in Lethal Weapon 4: The anxiousness of his whippet-thin body is a necessary foil to the bombastic acidity of his whip-smart mouth. So this compilation of largely nonphysical sketch comedy, taken from his Emmy-nominated cable series, veers from the pointedly loony (a street-violence public service announcement urging knives-for-guns trade-ins) to the aimlessly tasteless (the dismemberment jokes of a show titled Damn Fool). There’s little on The Chris Rock Show to stand up to his stand-up.
