Storyline

Jim is soon to be married to Patty, but when he wakes up after a bachelor party thrown by his friends, he finds an injured angel in his pool. When Patty sees her, she thinks he's seeing someone else and gets upset and tells her father. Now he has to figure out how to; cure the angel, tell Patty what happened, keep his friends from taking the angel to the papers, and keep Patty's father from killing him. It's no wonder he has a headache. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

The shaking-mad scenes were great!
13 September 2004 | by (South, East) – See all my reviews

Phoebe Cates was perfect in her shaking-mad scenes. It was just like in "Top Gun", where the air-control tower-guy spilled coffee all over himself during a 'fly-by'.

One of the funny scenes showed three of Michael E. Knight's buddies knocking at his door in the beat of a classic hit. That was unique.

The movie had touching parts as well, like when he awakens in the hospital, sees 'Angel', (Emmanuelle Beart), and finally understands she had come originally to carry him 'over', so to speak. Alas! She couldn't carry out her mission, having fallen for him ...

The movie deserves a higher rating!
