Get ready to laugh your head off with these two scathing comedies from comedian Chris Rock! This exclusive Double Feature DVD includes the hilarious films Down to Earth and Head of State!Down to Earth: Acclaimed as the funniest man in America, Chris Rock delivers a first-rate performance in this romantic comedy about a man who gets a second chance at life and love. Struggling black comic Lance Barton (Rock) knows what it’s like to die on stage. But when his life takes an unexpected turn–straight to heaven–Lance is sure there’s been a mistake. Miraculously, he’s right! An angel tells Lance he was taken prematurely but assures him he can be returned to Earth–in the aged body of a ruthless white billionaire. In this improbable reincarnation, Lance begins a hilarious quest to realize his showbiz dream and, along the way, discovers the person he never imagined he could be. Co-starring Regina King and based on the hit film Heaven Can Wait, Down to Earth is a bold and brilliant comedy (Kimberley C. Roberts, The Philadelphia Tribune).Head of State: If you want a real political party, there’s only one man who’s wild and funny enough to take it all the way to the White House. He’s Chris Rock, and he’s ready to roll! When Washington desperately needs a presidential candidate just weeks before the election, they need someone sure to lose. They pick Mays Gilliam (Rock), an unknown local politician from a down-and-out D.C. neighborhood, to be their puppet. But if Mays is going to run, he’s going to have fun. He’s bringing in his brother Mitch (Bernie Mac), a hardcore bail bondsman, as his running mate and turning his campaign into party central. Now, Gilliam’s gaining in the polls and on his way to making history. Comedian Chris Rock writes, directs and stars in the hit comedy from Capitol Hill that proves an underdog can become top dog and that the real power in Washington is a lot of laughs.

Excerpt: Election is a 1999 American comedy film adapted from a critically acclaimed 1998 novel of the same title by Tom Perrotta. The plot revolves around a three-way election race in high school, and satirizes both suburban high school life and politics. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, a Golden Globe nomination for Witherspoon in the Best Actress category, and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Film in 1999. It stars Matthew Broderick, Reese Witherspoon, and Chris Klein, and is set in suburban Omaha, Nebraska. It tells the story of Jim McAllister (Broderick), a popular history and civics teacher at a local high school, and one of his students, Tracy Flick (Witherspoon), around the time of the school’s student body elections. McAllister’s enthusiastic involvement with various school-related functions masks his frustration with other aspects of his life; Tracy is an overachiever whose obsession with getting into a good college masks a vindictive and manipulative personality. When Tracy obtains a nomination for class president in the school election, McAllister believes she does not deserve the title, and tries his best to stop her from winning. The film gained much attention commercially and critically in 1999, mainly because of word of mouth and high critical praise. While it failed to become a major box office success, home video and DVD releases were extensively popular, and the film achieved a cult classic status. Following its release, the movie has received various rankings; Election is ranked #61 on Bravo’s 100 Funniest Movies and #9 on Entertainment Weekly’s list of the 50 Best High School Movies, while Witherspoon’s performance as Flick was ranked at #45 on the list of the 100 Greatest Film Perfor.

Sometimes it’s hard to think of exactly the right title for a book. It’s easy, of course, if you have the title in advance. You just write the book to fit. But on this occasion, my aim was to provide a wide-ranging, general introduction to the wonderful world of classic movies that thrilled audiences from 1925 through 1965. To represent 1925, I chose “The Eagle” which showcases Rudolph Valentino at his most ingratiating. For 1965, I envisaged my favorite Agatha Christie adaptation, “The Alphabet Murders”. For 1928, “Our Daring Daughters” (starring the entrancing Joan Crawford) was a natural. For 1931, it was impossible to go past Jean Harlow’s “Platinum Blonde”; and for 1933, who could refuse admittance to either “King Kong” or “The Invisible Man”? It soon became apparent, however, that a year-by-year breakdown was not going to work, because there were too many years in which Hollywood produced a bumper crop of movie treasures. Take 1944, for instance: “The Conspirators” (a delightful extravaganza, intended as a box-office follow-up to “Casablanca”), with Hedy Lamarr, Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre; “Cover Girl”, one of my all-time favorite musicals, starring Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly, directed by Charles Vidor; “The Curse of the Cat People”, starring that quintessential object of fantasy, Simone Simon; “In Society”, one of Abbott and Costello funniest outings; “The Man in Half-Moon Street”, Paramount’s elaborately atmospheric answer to “The Picture of Dorian Gray”; two entries in Universal’s justly famous “Mummy” series, both starring Lon Chaney; and “Standing Room Only”, a side-splitting comedy of manners that rates with me as one of the Ten Best ever made. So I asked myself what did all these marvelous movies have in common? They were all simply Hollywood miracles of entertainment. Here are 125 of the best vintage, brought together with full credits, background information and up-to-date reviews in this well-produced book that also includes a
