Movie Reviews

One of the best romantic comedies ever made.
P. Krug | portland, oregon United States | 09/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Few things make me more sad than when a truely wonderful film like this one bombs and then goes largely unnoticed for years and years, with it being used to fill up shelf space in video stores and rental outlets, and few people even hearing about it or finding it, and even fewer actually getting to see it. It especially makes me mad when a super-cheeseball film like MANNAQUIN can find enough popularity to have a sequel made (of sorts) but not this one, which has similar plot themes (ordinary guy gets magical girlfriend) but is way, way comparing a film like MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING to forgettable trash like MEATBALLS 3.

You fall in love with the characters and the story, and the film has several hilarious moments, like when the angel charms the attack dog from next door, and then Patty's dad comes to berate Jim and then sees the angel and is charmed by her mere presence, then the moment the angel and Jim go inside the attack dog turns vicious again and attacks the dad! (Remember this is a comedy, so the guy doesn't really get hurt or anything, he just runs away terrified with the dog chewing on his pant leg.) O.K., the film's one real weakness is the singing "Love Bug" guy, who is more annoying than anything eles. Otherwise, this film is pure enjoyment beginning to end. The music score is excellent as well. I just wish I knew how to reach the people who made this movie so I could tell them myself how much I love it.

This one is every bit as good as SPLASH and deserves as much recognition as that film."

"I remember walking in the mall one day and I was pulled aside by one of those survey people. Well they asked me to look at a new movie preview coming up and asked for my thoughts and ideas. I loved movies so I had extra time to spend. THey lead me a small room and played the trailer to this movie. They asked me what I thought etc. I remember telling them that I would very much go see it. That I thought it was refreshing changes form devil related movies. It gives viewers an awsome visual of how angels can be. One of my favorate scenes in this movie, is where the angel, and Michael iswalking up to his apt. and a mean dog comes running up behind them barking and ready to attack. Then all of a sudden, the angel turnes around and with a sweet stair and a wonderful grin she "calms" the dog. It is very funny as well!!!
It has a magical heavenly quality to it that is a must see!!!!!!

"I love this movie!!! I want an angel too!!! Emanuelle Beart is gorgeous!!! This movie did not get very good reviews when it came out back in 1987, but I believe that it is a great movie! It just makes you feel good. What else is there to say!"
Cates is great, but Beart makes this movie

"As the earthbound angel, the almost-impossibly lovely Beart is enchanting. Without saying a word, she's funny too, trying to walk in high heels, and eating fast food french fries.

This was one of my favorite movies from the 80s. It's well worth owning. It makes me feel good to watch it."
