Storyline

Casey Falls is the assistant of commodity trader Peter Oak, but wants to get a license herself. When the diabolic Nike appears and promises to make her successful by use of her supernatural abilities, Casey hesitantly accepts. By correctly predicting the price of soybeans, she manages to make a career, but the price that Nike demands is high: she wants Casey's soul!

I got a chance to catch this film recently after all these years. Ray Charles plays God! Hilarious. Nancy Allen in a role that would have been great for Sharon Stone. Danitra Vance is hilarious doing her own comic twist - I saw her on Broadway some years ago, before she passed away - and comic Brad Hall from Sat. Night Live does a cool comic turn as the goofy boyfriend. Good wins over evil, and Ray Charles rules the day once again. In a nutshell, this soybean trading floor runner meets up with her guardian angel (which she thinks is the devil - it can't be a spoiler if the movie is this old) who tries to get her to corner the soybean market. Why would anyone care if the soybean market is cornered? Turns out that soybeans run the world, or so it's told in this fairy tale. I don't know, maybe I'm just not as jaded as I should be, but I loved seeing the soybean traders screaming bloody murder over their daily cash, and Ray Charles doing comedy. I wish this film would come out on DVD.
