The old saying "third time's a charm" certainly does not hold true as this remake of Heaven Can Wait, itself a remake of Here Comes Mr. Jordan, knocks into theaters instead of on death's door. From Robert Montgomery portraying a heavyweight prizefighter in the 1941 original to Warren Beatty as a forceful football player in the 1978 remake, we now somehow find ourselves stuck with the nasal loudmouth Chris Rock playing none other than a wannabe comedian. The basics of the story remain the same in this exhausted version: Man dies before his time; man gets a second chance at life; and man comes back in the body of a miserly millionaire whose wife and lover plot to kill him. Throw in endless racial jokes, cheesy and overripe philosophical wit and a lead actor who cannot act, and you're left with Down to Earth, a movie that should be laid to rest.
Cast: Chris Rock
