Down to Earth ★★ 2001 (PG-13)

Rock is called to heaven before his time by angel Levy but the only body available to send him back in is that of a 60-ish white businessman. Rock's presence and comic sensibility saves what could've been a lame time-waster but he's the only reason to see it and if you don't like Rock, don't bother. Remake of “Heaven Can Wait,” which was a remake of “Here Comes Mr. Jordan.” 87m/C VHS, DVD .
