So-so comedy, but Diane Franklin redeems it.
21 January 2000 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Its been awhile since I've seen this film but I recall that it was a so-so comedy who's only redeeming feature was the fact that Diane Franklin starred in it. Basic premise is that one man and one woman are sent through History to show the value of love during a test by the Devil (or something like that). Anyway, it starts out with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (yes, we see her topless). Then WW1 when Diane proves her love by standing before her lover as he's about to get shot by a German firing squad and opening her blouse (again, we see some skin). And so on until the Devil decides that Love can conquer all.

A good film for those who saw "Better Off Dead" and wanted to know if Diane was as hot as she appeared in that film with John Cusak. Answer: she sure was. If you're looking for comedy, skip this film and try "Better Off Dead".
