Film / Down To Earth

A 2001 comedy starring Chris Rock as a black struggling standup comic. He's run over by a truck and goes to Heaven, where he's reincarnated in the body of a rich, middle-aged white man. A remake of Heaven Can Wait.

Some tropes found in the film include:

  • Closer to Earth: The (mostly black and/or working class) domestic staff, vs. the upper-class white characters, all of whom are pretty evil.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: The premise.
