"A follow-up to "Angels in the Outfield," this time the angels, led by quirky Christopher Lloyd (Taxi, Back to the Future(s), are assisting the Westfiled High School Angels. Jesse Harper's Dad was a star here, back when the Angels really played football. By the time son Jesse is old enough to play, they have sunk to the bottom of the league. Dad dies in a tragic accident on the way home to celebrate Jesse making the team. Jesse blames himself, has quit the team, and is sliding down a precarious moral slope. His younger brother Kevin (David Gallagher) is the "true believer" and the real star of the show. He prays for Divine Intercession and receives it. The finale is, predicably enough, a game pitting the Westfield Angels against the Screaming Demons. The Announcer up in the booth at the games is well worth the price of admission. The funniest line is delivered by Westfield's coach to the European exchange student/soccer player/kicker, who is so happy to have made the team, that he ecstatically kisses the coach. In a paraphrase of Tom Hanks' great line in A League of Their Own: "There is no kissing in football!""
It's really good!

"I really like it. It is a very nice movie. I like the plot the most. What would it be like if people could come to earth after they were died? That's what it's about. That's not it. It's about football, too. That's why I like it, it puts many things together in one movie."
Still a feel-good movie

"Granted it's no "Angels in the Outfield", this sequel still has alot to offer. Based loosely upon same premise, here we have a young boy with a wish to have the family he once had prior to his father's death, he suddenly finds himself, with the help of angels, turning a losing high school football team into winners. There are a few humorous moments and some very touching scenes which show how strength, courage, and teamwork can heal. Even though I've seen it a number of times, I always get choked up at the end. Our society needs more "feel-good" movies like this!"

"Was pleasantly surprised by sentiment. Chris Lloyd is his typical self but surrounded by some top notch performances especially by the always great Paul Dooley. Overall great stuff for the family."
