Chris Rock runs for president.

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

Bernie is downright hysterical!

Delightfully hilarious yet awkwardly toothless

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.
March 29, 2003
In its unassuming way, it's a most satisfying political satire.
March 29, 2003
Comes closer to capturing Chris Rock's stand-up persona than anything else he's done so far.
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.
March 28, 2003
It's fast and funny and easily the smartest thing Rock has done in a long while.
March 28, 2003
A pleasing and occasionally very funny movie that maintains a mild but consistent hold on its audience.
March 28, 2003
[Rock] and Bernie Mac ... provide a furious combination of stylistically different but equally effective jabs at the status quo.
March 28, 2003
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.
March 28, 2003
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.
March 28, 2003
Head of State feels rushed and half-baked ... but when Rock and Mac are rolling, the sarcastic humor comes out.
