Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, when the bus is shown en route to the train station, the hubs of the wheels are dirty silver but in the next shot, when the buss is pulling in to the train station, the hubs are black. Not only that but it is not the same train station in the second shot as in the first shot. See more »

I love this movie
1 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

I am a guy, and I love "The Trouble with Angels"!

Now I feel better, I've admitted it. I remember seeing this as a kid and it made a great impression on me. The end is especially poignant and if you've never seen the movie, it can get to you. Plus, any movie that has a character named "Marvel Anne" is worth a look!

Hayley Mills and Rosalind Russell were in better movies in their career, but none I like better than this one.
