The Top Seven Funniest Chris Rock Movies

3. Pootie Tang

Some people hate Pootie Tang and some people adore Pootie Tang. I just think it’s a really wacky comedy written and directed by the always amazing Louis C.K and should be consumed with a very big grain of salt. People who hate on it really need to stop taking themselves so seriously and just enjoy it for what it is.

Pootie Tang is a cult movie in every sense of the word. S***, Pootie Tang is basically the black Austin Powers with a heavy dash of Blaxploitation. Chris Rock keeps himself extremely busy in the film by playing Pootie’s daddy, a ridiculous radio DJ and local hype man JB. Chris’s out-of-control rantings are more than enough reason to enjoy Pootie Tang in all its glory. Don’t hate, y’all. Tippy-taow!

 

2. Dogma

Personally, I’ve always felt that Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is a much funnier film than Dogma, but Chris only had a very small role the movie so I only find it fair to focus on his great portrayal in Dogma as Rufus, the black 13th apostle. The second Rock falls from the heavens and lands butt naked on a random highway, he takes over the screen. Putting his unique flavor on Kevin Smith’s dialogue is kinda magic. It’s also great to see Chris really have to push his acting chops a bit. It’s seriously no easy task to pump out all that dialogue and give it that Chris Rock twist at the same time. If you have yet to see this movie, Chris’ performance is more than enough reason to Netflix that s***.

"You masturbate more than ANYONE on the planet." Love that line.

 

1. CB4

If you grew up smack dab in the middle of the mainstream gangsta rap explosion that took place in the late-’80 and early-‘90s, you probably have nothing but love for CB4’s ridiculous take on the music and the artists’ exploits.

In the film, Chris Rock plays Albert Brown, a kid with big dreams of becoming an international music superstar. Brown has the genius idea to take on the alter ego of M.C. Gusto and transform himself into a dangerous gangsta from the streets just to sell records. I didn’t know this movie was about Rick Ross?!

You can put this in the cult category if you like, but I just think we should file it under "classic." CB4 has a brilliant premise and it came out when the gangsta rap scene was still fresh. Rock is also straight up hilarious. Another great aspect of Cell Block 4 is that it was co-written by Rock himself. I truly believe that this element gives the film its unique and balls-to-the-wall flavor.

Straight Outta Locash, booyyee!
