In the funniest movie of 2014, Chris Rock gives himself his greatest showcase to date, in a movie that’s cast every role from the biggest (Rosario Dawson, never better) to the smallest (Ben Vereen, heartbreaking as Rock’s deadbeat dad). It’s a razor-sharp comedy that gives a dozen undervalued black actors great, meaty parts to play. If only the rest of Hollywood would take notice.
