Pretty good for a Tiffany film....though this is hardly a glowing endorsement.
28 April 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Tiny Tiffany Studios was a low-budget studio that came and went. Their films generally are what you'd expect from a so-called poverty row production company--quickly made and with few frills, stars or decent scripts. "Just Like Heaven" is certainly no great film, but at least it looks pretty good considering who made it.

The film is set in France. However, it's a bizarro world version of France. Some of the actors have reasonable French accents, some (especially Fifi) are more ridiculous caricatures because they completely overdo the accent and behaviors and several, inexplicably, seem about as French as a bottle of Budweiser! This sort of inconsistency annoyed me and I really wanted to slug Fifi in the mouth and tell her to shut up!

As for the story, it begins with an annoying jerk, Tobey, acting as if he owns the streets in the neighborhood with his balloon business. When a traveling show arrives, he tries to chase them off and treats the sweet lady, Mimi, harshly. However, through the course of the film, the gruff Tobey begins to fall for her...which is tough as Jean also loves her and will say anything to win her.

The film is a mildly interesting love triangle and the three stars playing these parts do an okay job. But Fifi is LESS subtle than Pepe le Pew and the film comes off as a very inconsistent and occasionally dopey film...though a nice looking one.
