(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 »
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.
