Most of the church scenes were filmed at Trinity United Methodist Church in Newark, New Jersey. The production renovated the church to look more like a Baptist church. After filming ended, more renovations were added to return the church to a Methodist style. In the film, the church needs a new boiler. In real life, the real church did need a new boiler. The money from the fees for renting the space helped the church buy a new boiler and ventilation system. See more »

I just couldn't get into this film, a re-make of sorts of "The Bishop's Wife." The first hour was either annoying or just plain boring, and by then I didn't care what happened in the rest of the movie. Not much happened throughout this film, anyway.
The angel in here, "Dudley" (Denzel Washington) said things no angel would say, such as "If you're up there, Lord, then....."
"If???" He's an angel and he doesn't know if there is a God? Puh-leeze. What an insult to anyone's intelligence and beliefs. Only the secular film world have a dialog like this, where "Secular Humanism," not Christianity, is worshiped, as it is in this film.
Whitney Houston looked good in here, the best I've ever seen her. Washington went around with a sappy look on his face through most of the film. I wonder if he was just embarrassed starring in a dumb movie like this.
