'...Along comes Chris Rock with "Head of State", a mild comedy...'

Chris Rock suffers from painful verbal constipation in this PG-13 clunker. Hollywood, make it NC-17 when Chris and Bernie run for re-election.

Although a reheated formula, Head of State dishes out a few original laughs due to in part to the writing of Chris Rock.

. . .no one has talked about prosecuting Chris Rock for his torture of a captive movie audience with his new film Head of State.
May 28, 2003
Isn't this the same sort of pandering, middle-brow movie that Chris Rock used to say really means things about in his stand-up act?
