It may be an overly simplistic fantasy, but it's a funny one, and you won't find anything at the cineplex more relevant.

The most gratifying thing is that Mays Gilliam appeals to lots of voters in the film. Not just black or white voters, but everyone who feels disenfranchised with a system in which so many of our leaders are so unlike ourselves.

[Chris Rock] knows what is funny and how to get a laugh, and there is enough energy in the proceedings to carry him through this lightweight entertainment.

Comes closer to capturing Chris Rock's stand-up persona than anything else he's done so far.

In its unassuming way, it's a most satisfying political satire.
March 28, 2003
Head of State is very funny and -- at least right now -- absolutely essential.

March 28, 2003
Not the sharpest political humor I've ever heard, but it gets my vote for the stupidest fun I've had in a long time.

It's fast and funny and easily the smartest thing Rock has done in a long while.

A pleasing and occasionally very funny movie that maintains a mild but consistent hold on its audience.

[Rock] and Bernie Mac ... provide a furious combination of stylistically different but equally effective jabs at the status quo.

None of this is terribly believable, of course, but it passes as cinematic setup for Rock's best stand-up talent: socially pinpointed humor and outrage.

As director, Rock's comic timing seems to be a bit off. But he is smart enough to often let his co-star Mac carry the picture.

March 28, 2003
A mostly likable and entertaining political spoof, albeit more slapstick than savvy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.75/5

Head of State feels rushed and half-baked ... but when Rock and Mac are rolling, the sarcastic humor comes out.
