This is a very sweet movie to watch, the pleasant cinematic equivalent of light summer reading.

Still-relevant '70s comic fantasy has some profanity.

[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.

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.

Heaven Can Wait is an outstanding film.

Supremely produced, this whimsical romantic comedy served as star vehicle for Julie Christie and especially Warren Beatty, who made an impressive co-directing debut with Buck Henry; the film deservedly won the Oscar for Art Direction.

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.
