Sarah Wings It and It's a Good Movie
7 January 2018 | by geheweSee all my reviews

Four excellent performances: Sarah (Lindsey Gort), Jordan (Derek Theler), Daphne Angel (Kathleen Rose Perkins) and the boy Mason (Caleel Harris). It was a fun movie and I wouldn't mind watching it again. The story got a bit convoluted/strange when Sarah came back and only the girl friend could see her. I liked the ending (happy surprise) whereas some of the reviews already posted complained. I especially loved the part of Daphne the Angel (some good lines and laughs). Also loved the boy who reminded me of the young Gus on Psych. My wife did dose near the end on the part where only the girl friend could see Sarah. Definitely a lull there but an uplift at the end.
