    Was this supposed to be a comedy? It sounded more like a political statement.

    I went to laugh. Not nearly enough jokes and comedy. Simply not funny, nor is it impressive enough to be taken seriously.

    Rock can be a hilarious standup comedian, but whenever he attempts a movie, something gets lost in the translation. "Head of State" contains a few classic Rock moments, yet the majority of the film drags. The script also suffers from the "Austin Powers" syndrome -- a joke that?s initially humorous won?t be the eighth time around.

    When comics decide not to be funny, it is a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, Head Of State falls in this category.

    Though the comedy falls short of a debacle -- which is what such egocentric projects tend to be -- it isn't as sharp, fast or funny as Rock's stand-up routines.
  2. Chris Rock gets to direct himself, and as a result is finally starring in a laugh-out-loud funny movie.

    An excruciatingly amateurish production.
