Trivia

Clarence's young appearance in this film (as opposed to the elderly Clarence originally portrayed by Henry Travers) is explained off by establishing that Angels get younger as time goes by. (Which is why Joseph although over millennia older than Clarence, appears to be a young teenager.) See more »

Goofs

A factor in the story line that allowed Clarence to be portrayed by a young actor, was that Angels get younger as years go by. This could not be possible as within the Christian faith, God and Angels exist outside of time. See more »

Cute Attempt
16 February 2005 | by (Teaneck, NJ) – See all my reviews

I remember when this was first on the Family Channel around 10 years ago. Robert Carradine, of the Revenge of the Nerds fame and of course, 10 years later LIZZIE MAGUIRE, plays Clarence Oddbody in this cute "sequel" to IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Now, it's almost impossible to make a sequel to a timeless film such as IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. They tried it with GONE WITH THE WIND and failed miserably. I normally hate sequels. I didn't mind this, because I thought that CLARENCE was a clever idea. Taking the bumbling angel, who saves George Bailey's life, and putting him in another adventure is cute. Robert Carradine gives a nice performance as the innocent angel. Unfortunately, the rest of the actors are weak. The actress playing the single mother, who Clarence has come to help, is a talented Canadian stage actress, but is too serious and tragic in her role! Come on, this is CLARENCE not MACBETH! The video games in the film are pathetic. Video games weren't that bad in 1990. But still, it's wholesome fun. It'll entertain the kids. Enjoy.
