Storyline

Terry Dean is an electronics wizard and thief. After he is released from jail, he is hit by a car while saving a little girl life. While in the hospital, he dreams that God visits him and tells him he's an Angel, and must start doing good things to make up for his past life. Not believing it at first, he soon becomes convinced he must be an Angel. Not having any Angel powers yet, he must use his own experiences and talents to make good things happen.

Goofs

(at around 1 min) The priest is shown Terry's arrest record by a police officer. The record is for an arrest on January 12, 1986, and shows his date of birth as October 25, 1952, and his age as 37. Terry would have been 33 on that date in 1986, not 37. See more »

A "cute" Movie
21 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again, the husband-and-wife duo of Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski

  • team up for a film, as they did in the Crocodile Dundee series.




At face value, this appears to be a fun and appealing family film with the likable Hogan playing an angel. Even though he's a charming "angel" with a good heart and a good sense of humor, this is no Biblical angel, that's for sure. Actually, he's an almost mortally-wounded man who thinks he died and is an angel "on probation." So what you get is the Liberal ideal of what an "angel" would be (see above) but who also uses the Lord's name in vain, cheats and lies - not exactly according to the Book. Of course, part of that is played strictly for laughs.

Overall, it's still what they call a "cute" movie. I guess you could also call it a good "date" movie.
