From his appearance, you would not guess that pot-bellied, cigarette-smoking and dirty-winged Michael was an angel. But when three tabloid reporters learn that there is an angel afoot they go to Iowa to meet him. For publicity they bring him to Chicago, sharing misadventure along the way.

Critic Reviews for Michael
Travolta's charismatic presence is the only positive element in Nora Ephron's flawed romantic fable marred by rough narrative spots and scattered direction, again showing that Ephron lacks the most basic technical skills.
Some moments as lovely as the smell of cookies, especially the dance number.
Travolta magic is sprinkled everywhere
A cloying and cloudy romantic comedy in which Travolta dons angelic wings. Michael is innocuously whimsical but wasteful
Magical movie about an archangel who has a great set of wings, loves sugar and makes women swoon.
