Storyline Heading

When amateur comedian Lance Barton finds himself at Heaven's door, he is convinced there has been a mistake. Miraculously he is right. Since returning to his own body is not an option, a heavenly agent places him into the corpse of a rich Manhattan mogul who has just been bumped off by his wife -- until a more suitable replacement can be found.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Chris Rock fans may be the audience to get the most enjoyment out of this tepid comedy. Although a PG-13 release, the language is salty enough to make it somewhat inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
There's no denying that Chris Rock is a funny man. On the stand-up stage, he blazes, eliciting many a large laugh with his fierce mix of rage and joy. But one thing few would ever say about Rock is that he's a great actor. This is not to say that he's an especially bad one, for he has been effective in small roles in Dogma and Nurse Betty. It's just that one doesn't exactly equate "lead movie star" with him, and his flat starring vehicle Down to Earth doesn't do anything to change that perception.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

The vast majority of moviegoers enjoyed this movie very much. Teens and children enjoyed it the most, but of course they're the ones who enjoy this silly type of humor the most. Young adults enjoyed it slightly more than adults and men rated it a bit higher than women.

There weren't very many low opinions, which indicates this movie has wide appeal, BUT ONLY FOR THOSE WHO ENJOY THIS TYPE OF SILLY HUMOR! If that's you, then SEE "DOWN TO EARTH"

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
A surprisingly funny movie with some pretty mild objectionable content. It's certainly not a great movie, but I would recommend "Down to Earth" to anyone looking for a great laugh. I believe the humor will be enjoyed by both young and not so young moviegoers. I counted over forty instances where the audience laughed so it should have plenty of laughs for everyone.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

It seems everyone is trying to get into Heaven; at least those whose time is up. For Lance Barton, a struggling comedian and able bicycle messenger, his due date upstairs isn't for another 43 years. In the meantime, he has big dreams to pursue on Earth, including a crucial Amateur Night Contest at the famed Apollo Theatre. Hampering Lance's dream however, is one little problem — he ain't that funny.

One day his life would change forever, thanks to an overcautious emissary from Heaven, Mr. Keyes (Eugene Levy). 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 most desirous of clubs, the error is finally addressed by Mr. King (Chazz Palminteri), the no-nonsense head angel who man ages the place.

Since returning to his own body on Earth is impossible, the urban raised Lance reluctantly agrees to an unthinkable proposal. He will occupy the body of a wealthy old mogul, Charles Wellington, until a more suitable replacement could be found. There, in a plush Park Avenue penthouse, servants and butlers fill his new social circle as Lance works on his streetwise comedy routine for the big Apollo showdown.

Living in the body of a wealthy old white man is bizarre enough for Lance without falling in love with the beautiful woman (Regina King) publicly battling Wellington's company. Complicating matters further is the love affair between Wellington's wife (Jennifer Coolidge) and his personal assistant (Greg Germann), both of whom also plot to have the old man killed.

Living in this most unlikely world, Lance discovers his true inner self, enabling him to finally tap into his potential to reach his dreams.
