Storyline

The 'Angel Hope' of the title is a fictitious nun - a little like Mother Teresa, only much younger and prettier - who works at a fictitious hospital in the South Pacific. The third fictional element is a hurricane which destroys the hospital, triggering a charity campaign to rebuild it. Needless to say, there are no more plans to build a new hospital than there was a hospital in the first place. And equally needless to say, things begin to go wrong right from the start, with love and religion getting in the way of good honest greed. Written by Anonymous

Good entertainment, makes some clever points
28 November 2008 | by trondb68See all my reviews

This film is good entertainment and it is quite funny and clever. Billy Boyd is great (haven't seen much of him since LOTR, which is a shame as he is a real good actor), and Bernard Hill and Tim McInnerny are both very funny. I knew Tim McInnerny could be hilarious (from the Blackadder TV series), but I never knew Bernard Hill was such a comedian.

But don't expect slapstick humor, because except for some parts it is quite subtle. The story is good (a bit tricky to follow at certain points) and it makes some excellent points about how charity works (again quite subtle) and how you can get it your way by playing selfish egos against each other. It was fun to watch.
