Manohla Dargis at The New York Times, gave it a perfect 100 score! He stated: “In setting Andre on his search for self, Mr. Rock has carved out a third way, in the process creating a black character who’s fully human and a comedy that’s wholly a blast.”

Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it another perfect 100, saying: “Top Five is fully loaded. The laughs are earned, the intelligence never disappears, all the performers shine. But Rock is the diamond — raw, rough and rare.”

Jordan Mintzer over at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 100 as well. He said: ” It’s like watching a first-rate standup routine transformed into fiction, or in this case auto-fiction, as Rock has more on his mind than just making us laugh, offering up a witty celebrity satire that doubles as a love story set during one long and eventful New York City day.”

Chris Nashawaty from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a great 91 score, stating: “As brilliantly funny as Chris Rock is, he’s never been able to replicate the high-voltage danger and electricity of his stand-up act on the big screen. But in his latest film, the sharply satirical Top Five, he not only makes a case for why he should be a bona fide movie star, he also proves he’s a writer-director to be reckoned with.”

Joe Morgenstern from the Wall Street Journal, gave it a 90 score. He stated: “The film feels freshly minted because the man who made it has such a lively mind and fearless style. At a time when all too many movies are selling bleakness and dysfunction, it also feels like a revenant from Hollywood’s golden age, when an entertainment’s highest function was to entertain.”
