The ice skating scene was filmed in Portland, Maine at Deering Oaks Park. Prior to filming, the location had been selected because of the snow and ice pond in the park. However, the week that filming began, Portland had an unusual winter heat wave and the ice and much of the snow melted. Artificial snow and ice had to be used in the end and the actors had to skate on ice that kept turning to slush from the melting. See more »

A very long time ago I happened on "The Bishop's Wife" and really liked it, but it wasn't a Christmas classic and I never saw it again. So when I realized there was a "re-make" I was excited. I liked this story even better! I thought Whitney Houston was terrific and the rest of the characters (especially her mother) were also very enjoyable. Sometimes I just need a break from the mayhem and violence and this is a sweet, uplifting, old-fashioned Christmas pleasure I try to watch every year. If you like Denzel, if you like Lionel Ritchie, if you like Gregory Hines, and especially if you like gospel music, please give this movie a try.
