Dave Chappelle’s ‘Sticks & Stones’ Netflix Special Receives Extremely Low Reviews
Dave Chappelle’s Netflix special Sticks & Stones stirs up controversy to say the least. From defending Michael Jackson against child abuse allegations to possibly making light of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s suicide, Chappelle didn’t hold back.
At one point, Rotten Tomatoes gave the comedian the lowest possible rating of 0 percent, before it was boosted to 17 percent and eventually 33 percent.
One critic said the film was,
“Like dropping in on a rascally uncle who doesn’t know, or doesn’t care, how much he’s disappointing you”
“Sticks & Stones isn’t necessarily a failure, it just feels like Chappelle presenting half-formed material with few jokes that truly hit hard and stand out.”
A third added,
“The set mostly misses the mark. And what is that mark? The truth. Chappelle remains one of the most vital, and certainly among the most daring, of standups… His latest hour is a setback.”
While Rotten Tomatoes isn’t a fan, it has an 8.5/10 on IMDB.
