Too good not to be on DVD.

"Despite being crippled by a low budget and a wretched soundtrack that makes you want to ram tree branches into your ears this film won me over with its charm.

Bobby is a cool Fonz-style greaser who dies in a racing accident sometime around 1968. Once in the afterlife he's is informed that he cannot get into Heaven unless he accomplishes an assignment. Bobby agrees and 17 years later he returns in Ft. Lauderdale assigned to help a "spazolla" named Lenny. Kinda sounds like an episode of "Highway to Heaven" doesn't it?

Filled with funny moments, a good story and some unbelievably bad clothes this is a great 80's time capsule that the entire family can enjoy. My favorite moment is right after his makeover when he goes out trying to impress girls. God, I laughed for two minutes when he shot those cigarettes across the room."
Heartwarming unique comedy!

"This is really cute movie,if you enjoy movies dealing with the aftelife and loved ones who have passed coming back to help their family you can't miss this! I was a 12 year old extra when they filmed Heavenly Kid in Atlanta GA in 1984 at Stone Mountain and the Marta station, my sister also worked as a stand in for the lead actress.I thought Lewis Smith was so cute! I appear in the uncut TV version , that has alot of extra footage the new DVD version didn't include. The story begins in the early 1960's when a young handsome rebel named "Bobby" dies in a drag raceing accident.Bobby's girlfriend cries as she watches helplessly as his car crashes over a cliff.. Because Bobby didn't live a perfect life he must complete an assignment before he can go to "up town" (heaven), Bobby is sent back to the 80's to help a akward teen named "Lenny" cope with high school bullies and growing up, Bobby later finds out the teen is his own son.Bobby has a few culture shocks seeing how the times have changed since he was a teen in the early 60's, he also is crushed to find out his girlfriend has married his old rival and the story takes a bit of a romantic turn like in the movie "Ghost".There are also a few heartwarming and funny moments in this film with a wonderful Happy ending everyone will love! Lewis Smith is a wonderful actor, I remember he was friendly to everyone on the set, and later appeared in the movie "North and South" and "Wyatt Earp" etc.. I heard he is now a actting teacher. Why don't they release the uncut TV version of Heavenly Kid on DVD? There are quiet a few extra sceens that are completely left out of the new dvd version."

"I really found this movie and video very touching not only because I was an extra in it when we filmed it in Florida but just because the story and acting was great.You will be glad once you see it and will want to see it again in the future.Get it and I promise you won't regret it.
