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>

What a stupid movie
30 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All the scenes between the angel Emmanuelle Béart and Michael E. Knight were great, even brought me to tears near the end. But all the other characters, with the possible exception of Michael's father, were played as cartoons. Why the writer/director would make such a decision I cannot fathom.

The angel costume/character is absolutely beautiful, wings and all, as is the lighting.

I do so wish the ending had been the opposite - personal preference. After such a build-up during the penultimate scene, I was let down.

Also wish we were allowed shorter reviews as in the past. It is difficult to come up with additional commentary when there wasn't much of value to view. When a project such as "Date With An Angel" offers employment to so many and takes such an effort on the part of the actors and crew, one would hope that the daily rushes would give a clue to the eventual outcome.
