Not as good as Heaven Can Wait. The maid from the Jeffersons (Wanda Sykes) the best part - small part.

The idea was pretty ridiculous but it was funnier than I thought it would be.

The script is as lifeless as the character.

A very terrible film.

Critics Consensus is pretty much spot on, but it also felt like a thrown-together plot to get to a ten-minute Chris Rock stand-up set at the end.

not a bad movie. Chris rock puts on a pretty fun over the top performance I mean cmon. Chris rock dies and comes back to earth as a white man doesn't that sound pretty fun. although this movie could have been so much better and I mean so much better but its still a fun time waster

Down to Earth is funny in some parts, interesting in others, but mostly mediocre. I feel like the pg-13 rating restricted Chris Rock.

Chris Rock tries to keep this uninspired update of Here Comes Mr. Jordan afloat.

Lance Barton is a struggling comic who rides home on his bike gets distracted and gets hit and killed by a bus. He was suppose to survive and since his body was already disposed if he gets put in an old rich mans body. But he wants to return to his normal self and continue with his comedic career and go after a girl he fell in love with. The plot is absurd but with the decent cast you have in the movie it seems to work out well. Chris Rock was pretty funny but it seens most of the laughs came from Wanda Sykes. Eugene Levy was pretty funny too. You can always count on him for sone good laughs. So it was a pretty funny movie but there just were a few chessy parts. You know you enjoyed the movie if you laughed and you get a few good ones viewing this.

Nice for the first 30 minutes, then under the average comic movie.

this is one of the funniest films I have ever seen the best bit is at the start because the film starts with comedy.
½ October 6, 2013
A bland, unfunny comedy.
