A 50 year old adman (Robert Urich) loses his job. Rather than facing trying to find a new job, he decides to try to make it on the senior golf tour. This causes him to neglect his wife (Meredith Baxter) and family.
Michael is a 'guardian angel' who appears when children need an invisible ('imaginary') friend until the birthday after his help worked. His charge from ages 5 to 10, would be-author Jane Claremont, is about to marry Tv series star Hugh Danderford. Now Michael appears again, but neither understands with which mission. He's in love with her, a new experience, gradually seduces her by being his irresistible, soul-mate-like self and becomes corporeal. She stubbornly claims toward him, Hugh and her best friend, a psychotherapist, to remain committed to Hugh. Written by
Alyssa Mylano plays Ivan Sergei's girlfriend in the movie. In the series "Charmed" they played sister (Phoebe Halliwell) and brother in law (Henry Mitchell - husband of Paige Matthews - half sister of Phoebe). See more »
During the last 15 minutes, Jane and Michael are standing outside talking. It is obvious they are not really outside, as there is no wind, their hair never moves at all nor does anything move in the background. See more »
Delightful premise. Eric Winter does a very good job playing an innocent child-like spirit in an adult body. He plays those scenes with zest and energy. The script has some cute scenes and dialogue based on that premise. Eric Winter and Alyssa Milano have excellent chemistry as best friends.
There are some clichés in this film: The fiancé is a selfish and vain man, who does not appreciate the protagonist's true self. The protagonist gave up on her dreams and took a safe boring path through life. Not every scene works but still a pleasant film.
Stockard Channing is a great performer, but this role does not use her superlative talent.
Alyssa Milano plays down her sexiness to play a regular career girl. She is quite good in this role.
