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 »

Quotes

Terry Dean: I'm dead aren't I? Where the hell am I? You God?
God: You're not a religious man are you, Mr Dean?
Terry Dean: No but, I did plan to get very religious just before I died. You know, just in case
God: Yes
Terry Dean: Left it a bit late, didn't I?
God: Hmmm. Let me put it in language you'll understand. You're on probation, Mr Dean. Think of me as your probation officer
Terry Dean: Probation officer? Sure
God: I've been through your sheet, Mr Dean. You have a criminal record that started when you were none years old

Paul Hogan
24 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have completely enjoyed every single movie that Paul Hogan was in. He is a comic genius. I find it unbelievable that this particular movie is not available on DVD. His movies are not slap stick or like anything else I've seen. The things his characters do is just incredibly funny. Even years later when I remember something he did I can't help but laugh. This particular movie was funny as well as heartwarming. When he picked the fight with the guy in the wheel chair I thought I would bust a gut. But, he was just trying to prove a point. When he was shot with the gun loaded with blanks you start to worry, will he do something stupid and end up dead, or is he really an angel. My all time Hogan favorite. It has everything, romance, comedy, and will bring tears to tour eyes. I can't wait to find this movie on DVD.
