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

Genial but lackluster romantic comedy.

A two-word review: Chris rocks.
February 22, 2001
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.
February 17, 2001
The people behind this movie ... wisely devote 25 percent of the film to Rock's stand-up routine.

It's pretty consistently funny, if far generations removed from anything original.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
February 16, 2001
Down to Earth doesn't really aspire to anything more, the endless guffaws are really all that counts.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 16, 2001
Doesn't feel fat or padded, like so many contemporary comedies, and its very leanness is appealing.
February 16, 2001
At its best, Down to Earth is pleasant, relatively inoffensive vehicle for Rock, who, at least, proves that he can 'carry' a movie. But next time, please, no remakes.
February 16, 2001
Mildly amusing.

Down to Earth suggests that politics and comedy are two methods of initiating social change and that, in context, both are equally effective.
February 15, 2001
The script's line of racial-humor gags is relatively inoffensive, the supporting cast is mostly quite good, and the film gradually develops its own dreamy charm.

February 15, 2001
Often uproariously funny, blessedly short and never forgets it's a screwball romance for teen and adult moviegoers.
February 15, 2001
And so, here comes Mr. Rock, invading the white folks' world with something approximating a vengeance.
