Storyline

Jim is soon to be married to Patty, but when he wakes up after a bachelor party thrown by his friends, he finds an injured angel in his pool. When Patty sees her, she thinks he's seeing someone else and gets upset and tells her father. Now he has to figure out how to; cure the angel, tell Patty what happened, keep his friends from taking the angel to the papers, and keep Patty's father from killing him. It's no wonder he has a headache. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Fascination with movie subjects as I was NDE 3 hours in 1963 and met Asreal, Scorpio's Angel Of Death on the "Other" side.and became a Healer with some strange gift in my hands.
16 December 2002 | by cellinitwoSee all my reviews

If ever an angel looked like Emmanuelle Be'art,she was the one. The movie was so enjoyable and moving at times, you could shed a tear, while laughing off the couch at the antics of the "MORTALS" The movie just made you feel good to be able to watch. Why it never became a 10 star I can't figure out. The American movies will often engross you in this type of "Story" with name stars and at the end, "KICK YOU IN THE STOMACH" for effect...like Turner and Hooch, and City Of Angels and Heaven Can Wait. This "DATE WITH AN ANGEL" is one of my favorite movies of all time. I have 4000 very selected movies movies on vcr tapes and this one is TOP TEN. It should be run more often. Armand D. Maanum
