Movie Reviews

Wonderful comedy
Dr. Robert H. Getscher | OH United States | 10/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was an absolute delight. The dialogue between the angels and demons is witty and insightful. All the actors fit, and interact with punch, physically and emotionally -- girls with boxing gloves, yes! The sets and camera work are inspired fun, from tight views in a grocery store to expansive views of a heavenly night club, sexy torch singer and all. Even the movement from Spanish to English and back pushes the universality of the theme. What a wickedly comic view of good (and evil). I can't wait to share this visionary film. If you find it hard to follow, speed up your thinking, man."
Not bad!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie isn't bad. It's much better than an average 3 star rating but not a 5 star work of perfection either. Some things were a bit annoying to me. For example, I don't know why we had to switch from Spanish, to French to English and back again. It should have been completely in Spanish. So far I can't see the value of using three different languages, it's just an unnecessary complication.

I eventually understood that Heaven was a place for black and white 40's/50's glamor. However, for a moment I was a bit confused in the beginning. Things unfold as the movie carries along so if you're confused just stick with it and it starts to unfold and you'll understand as you go along.
