Top Five occasionally finds the firebrand comic pulling his punches: a rambling, discursive, sometimes squawkingly funny showbiz satire, it finds a bridge-burning comedian (Rock, obviously) seeking artistic redemption with a turgid black-history epic. In a sense, this is Rock’s own nervous stab at rehabilitative seriousness, even if it’s peppered with hit-and-miss jokes about celebrity vacuity, sexuality and racial perception.

Rock actually does a fine job when he’s nakedly scattershot – a slapstick flashback involving Cedric the Entertainer, and a hilarious prison cameo involving DMX channelling Charlie Chaplin, both slot satisfyingly into the more shaded moments. But the overall taste in Top Five is that of an overeager cook who throws in so many herbs the flavour is actually neutralised.

Sometimes working in the locked-in, long-take talk mode of Richard Linklater’s Before cycle and often trailing off into flashback tangents, it’s hit-or-miss, full of name-checks and cameos and leaden bits that abruptly burst into funny ones. Louie-esque miniatures—like an extended bit where Andre recounts a debauched, demeaning weekend in Houston in 2003—roll into bits of broad showbiz satire and lame relationship truisms lead off into raucous group improvs.
