It seems everyone is trying to get into heaven; at least those whose time is up. For Lance Barton, a struggling comedian and bicycle messenger, it's the last thing on his mind. His due date upstairs is 50 years away. In the meantime, he's got big dreams to pursue on Earth, such as landing a slot at the final Amateur Night Contest at the famed Apollo Theatre. Lance's has one little problem though - he ain't that funny. Thanks to an over-cautious emissary from heaven, Mr. Keyes, he's going to get hit (literally) with a much bigger problem. Showing that even God has difficulty finding good help these days, the inept minion mistakenly plucks Lance from a traffic accident - before it takes place. Transporting him to the Pearly Gates, or more accurately, the velvet roped-lines of the hottest club around, the error is finally addressed by Mr. King, the streetwise, no-nonsense head angel who manages the place from his plush windowed office. Since returning to his own body on Earth is ... Written by

Having spent £3.00 on renting this i must admit i do feel somewhat robbed...I havent ever seen or heard of Chris Rock before and after sitting through an hour or so of this i doubt whether i will ever hear of him again (certainly not by choice)..i have to add that this statement may be rather biased because of the fact that this is the only vehicle ive seen of his and im sure his stand up shows are in a class of their own. Personally theres nothing i could recommend to anyone in this movie..it really didnt make me laugh, it quite frankly bored me...the guy was very irritating and acting is certainly not his strongpoint as with the rest of the cast...to say this movie had a spark of originality is too leanient and its not often i dont watch a whole film but i didnt make it past the 1 hour mark. When i watch a comedy its for pure entertainment and something to raise my spirits, this certainly didnt do it for me...the plain and basic fact was it just wasnt funny!! a comedy failure 2/10
