This movie is hilarious. Chris Rock in the body of an old white guy. What else can you ask for? Not one of the best movies ever but its good for some laughs.

A romantic comedy
speed_on_wheelz | 05/23/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Comedian Lance Barton (Chris Rock) makes a fool of himself on stage one night and gets booed off. When biking home that night, he accidentally gets hit by a truck and is sent to heaven. In heaven, he gets the opportunity to go back `down to earth', only in someone else's body. To Lance, when he looks in the mirror, he sees himself, but when other people see him, he's Charles Wellington, the most richest man on earth, and the most unliked by everyone. Lance sees this and during his stay on earth, tries to make peace. One thing leads to another, and he gets the girl Sontee Jenkins (Regina King), who at the beginning was mad at Charles (Lance) for not caring about hospitals (or something along those lines). This film also stars Jennifer Coolidge as Charles Wellington's wife, and Wanda Sykes as the maid Wanda. Wanda was so funny in every scene she was in. So was Jennifer. Everything they did was so natural!"

"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."

"If you want to pick one movie to see of 2001 It has got to be down to Earth! If you want to see Chris Rock do his best performance. If you want to laugh all day and night Its got to be this. this is one of the funniest movies since Big Daddy and Happy Gilmore. Please see this movie."
