Frank Quinlan and Huey Driscoll, two reporters from a Chicago-based tabloid, along with Dorothy Winters, an 'angel expert', are asked to travel to rural Iowa to investigate a claim from an old woman that she shares her house with a real, live archangel named Michael. Upon arrival, they see that her claims are true - but Michael is not what they expected: he smokes, drinks beer, has a very active libido and has a rather colourful vocabulary. In fact, they would never believe it were it not for the two feathery wings protruding from his back. Michael agrees to travel to Chicago with the threesome, but what they don't realise is that the journey they are about to undertake will change their lives forever. Written by

Roger Waters (bassist and singer/songwriter of Pink Floyd fame) wrote a song for the soundtrack that wasn't used on the final cut.
The song, as Waters' noted in a recent interview on a British cooking show On The Table, loosely contributes to the theme of his upcoming 2016 solo album tentatively titled "Heartland". The song cut for the movie most likely resembles the recently aired " Crystal Clear" which Waters played live for the first time at the 2015 Newport Folk Festival.
Waters elaborated, in the same interview described the movie as a "really really bad movie...about an angel." See more »
During the first breakfast scene with Michael, both Dorothy and Frank order their eggs over easy, but you can clearly see that they both get scrambled eggs. See more »
Warm hearted flic depicting arch-angel Michael as a brawling, overweight, cigarette smoking slob who loves to dance and cavort with the opposite sex. He does have a good side, however, as he strives to set things right in the lives of a couple of burnt out losers before being recalled to heaven. Funny, well played out film; very enjoyable although somewhat irreverent.
