The film is much like the wannabe candidate foiled by the primaries. You can't help but think what could have been, if only the movie had gotten off on the right foot.

Rock is a man who continues to perpetuate stereotypes for the price of "comedy" and continues making one terrible film after the other.

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

Not merely satisfied with stereotyping whites, Rock insists on taking shots at blacks, fat people, poor people and even spina bifida patients.

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.

Rock serves as star, director, co-writer, and co-producer, so he can't point fingers at anyone else when the film loses its way.

With the whole country watching him, Chris Rock has absolutely nothing of substance to say.
July 8, 2003
Yes, and...?
June 26, 2003
Like so many of his other films, it's still not the movie that Chris Rock's fans know he's capable of making.
June 24, 2003
Another mediocre comedy from Chris Rock.
June 19, 2003
But in his acting pursuits, Rock just doesn't do well. He's stiff and uncomfortable on camera, especially when it comes to romantic or emotional scenes.

. . .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?
