Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed as "the funniest man in America,"* Chris Rock delivers a first-rate performance in this romantic comedy about a man who gets a second chance at life and love. Struggling black comic Lance Barton (Rock) knows what it's like to die on stage. But when his life takes an unexpected turn - straight to heaven - Lance is sure there's been a mistake. Miraculously, he's right! An angel tells Lance he was taken prematurely but assures him he can be returned to Earth - in the aged body of a ruthless white billionaire. In this improbable reincarnation, Lance begins a hilarious quest to realize his showbiz dream...and, along the way, discovers the person he never imagined he could be. Co-starring Regina King and based on the hit film Heaven Can Wait, Down To Earth is a "bold and brilliant comedy."** *Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV **Kimberly C. Roberts, THE PHILADELPHIA TRIBUNE

Chris Rock's in his first big leading role "Down To Earth".This movie has great comedy, and stand up comedy material and cool soundtrack featuring: DMX,Snoop Doggy Dogg, Lauren Hill, Mystikal and many more.The movie was based on Warren Beatty's hit film of the 70's "Heaven Can't Wait".
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.
HIGHLY RECOMENDED

A great story based on Heaven Can Wait. It's funny, Chris does a great job. Good humor--no trash talk.

A little potty language and low level sex could offend sensitive people, however.

A very enjoyable movie. Fun to watch.

Absolutely love how Chris Rock adapted this story! The whole premise is brilliant. Chris plays a young struggling comedian mistakenly taken too soon to Heaven by a well meaning Angel. They only way they can get him back to earth is to place him in the body of another just as they die. Chris ends up back in the body of a cranky, stingy, old, rich white guy. It's laugh out loud funny and the cast of characters in this classic give outstanding performances. Wanda Sykes character in particular is hysterically funny but the whole cast is great. If you love comedy movies, this is a must see!

Okay, let's be honest, we all know these aren't Chris Rock's greatest movies, yeah, that is obvious. However, they both are funny movies starring the hilarious Chris Rock, two on one disc and for cheap, so I grabbed it, and think you should too.

I realize that this movie is a remake from an older version but I think this one is far better and far funnier in a lot of ways. Chris Rock is an awesome comedian. I got this movie for my father and he loved it.

Hilariously outrageous! One of Chris Rocks best! This movie sees him dying too early only to be brought back in an old white guys body! But here's the punch line, he's a comedian in the movie as well! I was in stitches, definately a must see if you like Chris Rock's dynamic style of comedy.

I received the DVD very quickly and it was for a friend of mine who didn't know that I did it. She was very excited that I was able to find it. She watched the movie and was very happy with it. Thanks for the prompt service.
