Movie Info

A well-known level-one angel looking to reunite with his level-six soulmate strikes a special bargain with God in this heavenly comedy featuring some of the best-loved stars of the golden-era of cinema. George Burns (Frank Gorshin) is miserable in heaven. In addition to not being able to smoke his trademark cigars, level-one angel George is also forbidden from cavorting with his level-six love Gracie Allen (Amy Wieczorek). Upon bearing witness to the misery of his forlorn heavenly guest, God makes a proposal to George; save failing musician Steven "Shoomie" Schoomer (Scott Edmund Lane) from completely destroying his life and earn the status that will let him spend eternity with his beloved Gracie. When George arrives back on Earth, he finds Schoomie a commitment-phobic wedding musician with few prospects and little hope for the future. After encouraging Schoomie to make amends with former best friend Howie Gold (David Proval) and embark on a madcap mission to sell a stash of smuggled Cuban cigars, George's plan goes awry as everyone from stealthy assassin Shelleen (Gorshin playing in a dual role) to Fidel Castro himself show a curious interest in the mysterious cigars.

Critic Reviews for Angels with Angles

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

An oddity as awkward as its title.

Dec 21, 2005

An otherwise lame and overly contrived comedy studded with former TV stars and largely unconvincing impersonations of other showbiz legends.

Dec 16, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/5

Thoroughly hapless and embarrassing.

Variety
Top Critic

The film overshoots its zany mark and lands somewhere closer to hell than heaven.

Dec 15, 2005 | Full Review…

...all sound and fury, not nearly as funny as [writer/director/star Scott Edmund] Lane seems to think.
