It seems everyone is trying to get into heaven; at least those whose time is up. For Lance Barton, a struggling comedian and bicycle messenger, it’s the last thing on his mind. His due date upstairs is 50 years away. In the meantime, he’s got big dreams to pursue on Earth, such as landing a slot at the final Amateur Night Contest at the famed Apollo Theatre. Lance’s has one little problem though – he ain’t that funny. Thanks to an over-cautious emissary from heaven, Mr. Keyes, he’s going to get hit (literally) with a much bigger problem. Showing that even God has difficulty finding good help these days, the inept minion mistakenly plucks Lance from a traffic accident – before it takes place. Transporting him to the Pearly Gates, or more accurately, the velvet roped-lines of the hottest club around, the error is finally addressed by Mr. King, the streetwise, no-nonsense head angel who manages the place from his plush windowed office. Since returning to his own body on Earth is impossible, the urban dwelling Lance reluctantly agrees to a normally unthinkable proposal. He’ll occupy the body of a wealthy old white mogul, Charles Wellington, until a more suitable body can be found. Strangely enough, in a Park Avenue penthouse, servants and butlers become his new homeys as Lance works on his streetwise comedy routine for the big Apollo showdown. Living in the body of a callous old white man would be bizarre enough for Lance without falling in love with Sontee, the beautiful woman publicly battling Wellington’s company at the same time. And if that wasn’t enough, he’s got to deal with the love affair between Wellington’s wife and his personal assistant, and their plot to have him killed. Can reincarnation lead to self discovery, true love and a better stand up routine? Lance Barton is about to find out.

Film Review

With a combination of charm, wit, humor and romance; "Down To Earth" has ascended to be one of the funniest films I’ve seen in 2001. This marks the second Chris Rock movie I have seen and I must say I was impressed with his comedic and acting ability because he kept me laughing throughout the film. It is a true pleasure to take a break from the violent action films and watch a light-hearted comedy meant to entertain."Down To Earth" is a very exciting film to watch because Chris Rock’s comedy is funny and unpredictable. One the coolest parts of this film was Rock’s performance because he knew when to turn off the comedy in the more serious scenes. Furthermore, Rock seemed to fit the part perfectly because his performance looked to pulled off with little effort. This is Chris Rock’s breakthrough performance because it proves he is an actor to be reckoned with and not just a one-hit wonder.The intelligence and creativity of the writing was excellent because it was un…

Chris Rock deserves better than he gives himself in "Down To Earth." As directed by brothers Chris & Paul Weitz of "American Pie" fame, this uninspired remake of Warren Beatty's 1978 fantasy "Heaven Can Wait," itself a rehash of 1941's "Here Comes Mr. Jordan," lacks the abrasively profane humor that won Chris Rock an Emmy for his first HBO special. Predictably, he spouts swear words from A to Z, but he consciously avoids the F-word. Anybody who saw this gifted African-American comic in "Lethal Weapon 4," "Dogma," or "Nurse Betty" knows he can elicit more laughter with the F-word than Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy put together. Sadly, despite a few witty one-liners, "Down To Earth" hits Rock bottom both as a contrived comedy and an improbable interracial romance."Down to Earth" utterly destroys any good will that the Weitz Brothers generated with their landmark gross-out face "…

this is one of the only films that i’ve actually left the cinema because it was so bad.the others were, just in case you’re interested, the others were 1:"deep impact" – so boring i had to leave and 2:"dude, where’s my car?" – you can only listen to "sweet","dude" for so long. and besides i dislike that guy from "that 70s show". chris rock is a one trick pony, while admittedly that trick can be funny, you cant base an entire film on it. (the whole black vs white thing). i think chris rock needs a partner in his films to rein in his ranting. well that’s all i have to say but i’m being forced to finish this 10 lines rule. sorry ……… ………… ……….. …………… …….. ………. …… ……… ……… ……….. ……… …… ….
