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

The bar brawl with Michael fighting with a pool cue and garbage can lid is very similar to many famous Renaissance paintings of Michael fighting Satan. See more »
When Michael is dancing in the nightclub, wearing a trench-coat, he spins around in a circle and his trench-coat floats up a little, and there are no wings available, but then immediately following the spin, his wing tips are sticking out from the bottom of the trench-coat. See more »
I really enjoyed this movie for what it is: A funny little film that doesn't take itself too seriously. Plot summaries are available everywhere so I won't go into details. Michael isn't about a complex plot anyway. It just builds on a great premise and takes the viewer on a wonderful road trip.
John Travolta's performance as a chain-smoking, lady-loving, bar-brawling, pie-eating angel is just perfect. And who doesn't love Sparky?
Watch this if you want to have a few laughs and a overall good time. Highly recommended.
