Down to Earth is worth seeing. Like mainstream brew, it doesnt have high potency, but it is a nice diversion.

Rock saw the untapped goldmine of humor, found when a white person acts black.

It's too bad that something with so much potential was forgotten at the box office. It's especially too bad because the film got what it deserved.

Goes out of its way to avoid being funny -- backs actors into corners, restricting them from using their natural talent.

Genial but lackluster romantic comedy.

The makers of Down to Earth were faced with a dilemma nobody would have anticipated: Boosting their star's screen time kills the comedy.

Rock, simply put, is not a skilled actor. He overacts constantly and seems uncomfortable on his feet.

Rarely has a pair of leather pants been so sorely abused in the service of low comedy.

When Rock finds his authentic swing as an actor as well as a comedian, he'll be, like, a movie god.

Almost every minute of Down to Earth is entertaining. But not quite surprising.
