Chris Rock's "Good Hair"

Who can forget the part of Malcolm's book where he gets conked that first time?

Just saw a screening of Rock's "Good Hair," and it's really good, very entertaining, and if you're a black woman, on the real. Several funny moments, but one in particular since I'm in LA and he calls us out. That we saw it with a black audience just made it that much funnier.

Rev. Al laid out one of the most perceptive observations, I thought. And while black Hollywood was represented - Nia Long, Raven Symone, Megan Goode (very briefly), Vanessa Bell... - this is Chris Rock, certainly an A lister. Where was Oprah, Beyonce', Whitney, even Tina Turner?

An artful blend of culture, race, gender, history, and business wrapped up in a jack in the box that makes you laugh. Plus, that LA OG, Ice T, has the strong closer.

See this flick!
