The film drags its feet uncertainly from beginning to end.

Unnecessary, charmless remake of Here Comes Mr.Jordan.

There's nothing worse than a pushy narrative.

There are a few laughs from Grodin and Cannon, but Beatty and Christie are like 400-pound gorillas chasing a milkweed seed.

This updated version of the 1941 film Here Comes Mr Jordan is one of the few remakes that is almost as good as the original.

This is the kind of upbeat screwball comedy Hollywood used to do smoothly and well.

It's certainly likable enough and was a big hit when it came out, but one could hardly call it an auspicious artistic debut -- a crafty commercial entertainment with a certain amount of intelligence is more like it.

[The film] has everything going for it: big laughs, populist politics, billowy sequences set in heaven, a murder plot, a climactic Super Bowl game, a supporting cast of choice comic actors, and best of all, a touching (but PG) romance.

In the hands of anyone but Warren Beatty, this might really stink, but the old scoundrel infuses the hero with such earnest and wide-eyed spirit that it's hard not to like.
