Storyline

Anna Zador is a secretary who's been working for 6 years at Count Willie Palaffi's bank. Every day, she rides to work on her bike and places flowers on Willie's desk, but Willie (the Budapest playboy) doesn't know that she exists. "Whiskers", noticing Anna to be a sweet and beautiful woman, believes she would be the perfect wife for Willie. He insists that Marika (Willie's personal secretary) invite Anna to Willie's costume birthday party - she does so reluctantly for she wants to marry Willie. Marika, knowing Anna is low on cash, offers to help her get a costume. At the party, everyone is dressed elegantly, while Anna is in a simple Angel's outfit. Willie, feeling sorry for her, asks her to dance, but when he sees the guests laughing at them, he makes an excuse and goes upstairs. Upstairs, Willie falls asleep and dreams that an Angel named Brigitta comes to earth to marry him. On their wedding night, Brigitta loses her wings to Willie's delight. He is less delighted when her ... Written by Kelly

Such a cute movie...
11 August 2002 | by (Winchester, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I know a lot of people don't like this movie, but I just think it is adorable. There's not much I can say, but the movie is a feel-good movie I guess. The songs are beautiful, the costumes are beautiful, the voices are beautiful, and there are a lot of funny lines in the movie, especially as Briggitta learns about the do's and don't's of society. If you like musicals, I'd say you'd like this one!
