Tagline: A story of premature reincarnation.

Plot: It seems everyone is trying to get into Heaven; at least those whose time is up. For Lance Barton, a struggling comedian and able bicycle messenger, his due date upstairs isn't for another 43 years. In the meantime, he has big dreams to pursue on Earth, including a crucial Amateur Night Contest at the famed Apollo Theatre. Hampering Lance's dream however, is one little problem he ain't that funny.

One day his life would change forever, thanks to an overcautious emissary from Heaven, Mr. Keyes (Eugene Levy). 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 most desirous of clubs, the error is finally addressed by Mr. King (Chazz Palminteri), the no-nonsense head angel who man ages the place.

Since returning to his own body on Earth is impossible, the urban raised Lance reluctantly agrees to an unthinkable proposal. He will occupy the body of a wealthy old mogul, Charles Wellington, until a more suitable replacement could be found. There, in a plush Park Avenue penthouse, servants and butlers fill his new social circle as Lance works on his streetwise comedy routine for the big Apollo
