Lance Barton(Rock)is a stand up comedian who cant bring it in a big audience and gets booed alot, but it all changes when he gets hit by a semi-trailer and goes to heaven, finding out that it wasnt his time to leave yet they try and find him a body.The body which selects is the 15th richest man in america 'Mr Wellington' a cut throat buisness man who is tryng to close the down Brooklyns own hospital, which the reporter Sante Jenkins hates Wellington and protest against this doing.
The reason Lance picks Wellington is because he has the hots for Miss Jenkins.Lance changes everything with the hospital for Miss Jenkins also working on material for his stand up act in the Apollo as it is about to close.We see alot in this HILAROIUS film as Lance forgets that he is in a white body, we see him driving down to street with snoop dogg in the stereo system, also see him in a black comedy club doing black comedy.
The film has a sad but happy ending, it is weird but you just have to watch it.Surprisingly this film is only PG, knowing Rock's stand up comedy acts we would all think this was going to be M, but anyway it is made out to be a GREAT family movie thats packs alot of laughs.This is a must get for Chris Rock fans and also for comedy fans,it is a fun movie from start to finish and well deserves to be in you collection.The is not many Special features on the DVD, but the movie makes up for it.
So here's the Story:
Lance Burton is a young black guy living in harlem,NY.he's trying to be a stand up comedian,and there's one places he keeps trying to getlaughs at:"the Apollo."Evertime he goes he gets booed of the stage,but he keeps trying,especially when he heres the Apollo is going to be torn down soon....But,Tat night when hes riding his bike through town,he has a close encouter with a truck,and suddenly,he's in Heaven!well,turns out his guardian "angel",took him 1/10 of a second BEFORE the bus actually hit him,and he was supossed to live about 40 MORE YEARS!!!!!!!!!!Well,lance makes a deal,he "try out" somebody elses body untill they can find one he likes.So,after looking at several bodies of people who are dead,but nobody knows that yet,Lance finally chooses weathly Mr.Charles Wellington,to be his teporary body, because of a beautiful young black woman he saw in Mr.Wellington's house...Well,she wasn't interested in him,she came to sue him!!!!!You see,mr.Wellington had recently boughten a hospital narby,and well,oh,You should just watch the Movie!!!!!!!!!!
This is an extremly funny movie,I highly recomend it to anyone who likes a good laugh!
