Beautiful fairytale for everyone!, 15 September 2000
Author: cuterain from China

Date with an angel is one of my favourite, and as far as I know most of my friends love this one just as I do. I just can't figure out why such a lovely movie gets soooo underrated :(

yeah, maybe the plot is a bit simple, and maybe the special f/x is just a joke compared with "the jurassic park" and "the matrix", but this movie makes me feel good. it makes you believe that there are so many wonderful things in this world: beautiful love, funny friends and adorable angel...

If you watch this movie with high expectation, it's gonna fail you; but if you just wanna relex and get yourself one and a half hour of fun, it's a must-see!!!
