QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A comedian tries to promote his newest film, a drama, all while contending with a reporter who trails him all day with questions about his life as a celebrity.
PLOT:
At one time, Andre Allen (CHRIS ROCK) was named the funniest man in America, and he had a wildly successful film franchise playing the title character in a number of "Hammy the Bear" movies. Now that he's sober, however, he wants to do serious and profound work, and his latest film, "Uprize!" is about a famous Haitian slave rebellion. But it's not getting good reviews and thus he's out doing the PR circuit and ends up teamed for the day with New York Times reporter Chelsea Brown (ROSARIO DAWSON) who follows him around from one publicity stop to the next, with his longtime friend, bodyguard and driver, Silk (J.B. SMOOVE), always close by.

A recovering alcoholic herself, she wants to know how being sober has affected his career, and is also interested in his upcoming nuptials to reality TV star Erica Long (GABRIELLE UNION) who's going to have their wedding broadcast live on Bravo. As the day wears on, she gets him to reveal things about himself, all while some chemistry begins to spark between the two.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens, especially if they're fans of Rock and/or anyone else in the cast, might show some interest in the film.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong sexual content, nudity, crude humor, language throughout and some drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
