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 »
I thought this was an enjoyable movie. Yes, the ending was fairly predictable, as most of these type movies are, but I enjoyed it. I didn't know this was based on a book and evidently it doesn't follow it very closely and most people who've read it didn't care for the movie. If you don't know about the book, the movie is good. I did notice several goofs (I'm not giving away anything at all about the storyline, so I don't consider these spoilers): in a scene where Jane goes to a restaurant to find Michael, she speaks with the hostess and as the camera flips between the two women, Jane's scarf is around her neck and then hanging down. It goes back and forth about 5 times during the conversation. Also, the previews for the movie show parts of scenes that don't actually happen in the movie. The preview of Michael in front of the cab has the cab driver saying "we can all see you" and he never says that in the actual movie. Also, the preview shows a brief clip of Jane and Michael dancing 'the robot' in a bar, and in the movie, she doesn't get up until he is done dancing.
