Robert Downey, Jr. has said of this film at the "Robert Downey, Jr. Film Guide" website: "Ron Underwood really attracted me to Heart and Souls. It's a character-driven film about sacrifice. The sacrifices people make for one another, and the sacrifice you have to make to find any semblance of bliss, and then there's Thomas, whose head is spinning from the realization that these souls are real, and he's going to have to bend a little to make room for them. Real fine, San Francisco, lots of money. Probably one of the best times in my life. Good movie. It's a fun movie, in which I only have to wear one costume. Even my hair stays the same in the whole movie, and the only thing I had to do was act. So that was a piece of cake." See more »

This was another winner in a fantastic year for movies: 1993. In fact, there were so many good movies in this year that films like this were buried.
If you can just ignore the typically off-the-wall Hollywood version of death and heaven and just enjoy the wonderfully-sentimental and humorous fantasy- romance-drama story, you'll be very entertained.
The story is nicely told, entertaining start-to-finish in its 103 minutes. It really takes off after Robert Downey Jr. has become an adult and the "spirits" return to him.
As much humor as in here, in addition to fantasy and drama, the final 15-20 minutes are tear-jerking.
