    The selling out of Chris Rock -- or Down to Earth, as he's chosen to call it -- is a sad, sad thing.
  2. 10
    The film seems to argue that Rock's real-life manipulation of the race card is little more than exploitation, rather than the essence of his incendiary comic critique.
  3. Rock is undisputably gifted and charismatic, but when Down to Earth takes his edge away, the film's energy goes with it. And without energy, no comedy can survive.
