Did You Know?

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 »

Forget this movie...very disappointing...
2 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There is hardly anything bad enough that I can say about this movie. Not only does it not have a scintilla of the spirit of It's a Wonderful Life, a truly wonderful movie to which it is supposed to be a sequel, but it has all of the required elements for a badly made movie: bad acting, bad plot--and I could go into more detail, but I would rather spare you that. Add this to very implausible story twists and glaring discrepancies of reason, and you have a painful result that will get you nearly pulling your hair out in frustration and declaring that it should never have been made into a movie at all. I'm sorry to sound like such a bad sport when normally I go all out for the values this movie is supposed to contain, but I have to be honest. Consider yourself warned.
