Watch: Chris Rock Has A Problem With Jackie Robinson Biopic '42' In Deleted Scene From 'Top Five'

You know what movie deserved a bit more love? “Top Five.” Released last December, it got lost in the holiday shuffle, and that’s a shame because it’s a genuinely funny, frank, warm, and romantic effort from writer/director/star Chris Rock. But the good news is that it’s coming to home video, and today you can check out a deleted scene from movie.

In the sequence, we join comedy superstar actor Andre Allen as he returns to stand up roots. In the movie, it’s a climatic high point, with Rock delivering plenty of zingers left and right, but this one didn’t make the cut. It finds him riffing on “42,” the Jackie Robinson biopic from a couple of years back. Mostly, his criticisms aren’t that sharp and the whole thing isn’t terribly funny, but if you ever wondered what he thought about the baseball movie, well know you know.

“Top Five” is ready to own on March 17th. Watch below.
