Where to watch Down to Earth

What is Down to Earth about?

It seems everyone is trying to get into heaven; at least those whose time is up. For Lance Barton (Chris Rock), a struggling comedian and bicycle messenger, it's the last thing on his mind. His due date in heaven is fifty years away. In the meantime, he has 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 isn't that funny. Thanks to an overly cautious emissary from heaven, Mr. Keyes (Eugene Levy), 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 (Chazz Palminteri), the streetwise, no-nonsense head angel who manages the place from his plush windowed office. Since returning to his own body on Earth is impossible, the urban dwelling Lance reluctantly agrees to a normally unthinkable proposal. He'll occupy the body of a wealthy old white mogul, Charles Wellington III (Brian Rhodes), until a more suitable body can be found. Strangely enough, in a Park Avenue penthouse, servants and butlers become his new homeys as Lance works on his streetwise comedy routine for the big Apollo showdown. Living in the body of a callous old white man would be bizarre enough for Lance without falling in love with Sontee Jenkins (Regina King), the beautiful woman publicly battling Wellington's company at the same time. And if that wasn't enough, he has to deal with the love affair between Wellington's wife and his personal assistant, and their plot to have him killed.

Microsoft Store

Microsoft Store gets a makeover this year just in time for the release of Windows 11. The new store is already looking promising with reputable partners on board, including Adobe, Zoom, and Disney Plus. A partnership with Amazon also means access to Android apps that can run on your Windows 11 computer.

Got a question about Microsoft Store?

All kinds of apps are on Microsoft Store, plus a large collection of movies available for rent and purchase. There’s also plenty of popular shows you can buy with complete seasons of The Walking Dead and its spin-off Fear the Walking Dead, Shameless, and Better Call Saul just to name a few. Even the complete seasons of South Park are on here, as well as new episodes of Rick and Morty.
Buying movies on Microsoft Store can go as low as $4.99 during weekly specials, while rental flash sale can get you to rent movies for as low as $0.99. Some blockbuster movies are also offered with up to 45% off.
As part of its Windows 11 announcement, Microsoft makes a new policy change that will allow developers to keep every penny their Windows app makes. While the 100% revshare option doesn’t apply to games, it’s still something that Apple and Google don’t have right now.

Benefits

  • Supports more desktop applications
  • Android apps now available
  • Additions of Teams, Office, Edge, and Visual Studio
  • Rent movies or purchase TV shows and films on Xbox, Windows, and via Microsoft.com
