Down to Earth (Continued)
Eventually, a majorevent occurs and Lance is forced to switch bodies once again. As in mostcomedies, everything turns out all right in the end.
In this film, ChrisRock's talent shines. The jokes are appropriate and witty. It's easy to see thata lot of thought was put into the humor in "Down to Earth."
Ican't say the same, however, for the storyline. Except for the wholebody-switching business, the plot is very cliched. It follows a typical scenario:boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. Though it is adequate, theplot could have used a little touching-up. It's a good thing the movie's humorovershadows the poorly developed storyline, but then, this is a comedy, not anepic drama.
Overall, this movie is fairly decent and well worth spending acouple of dollars on. It's good for a laugh or two (or three), but don't expecttoo much from it.
