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

[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.

Heaven Can Wait is an outstanding film.

The film drags its feet uncertainly from beginning to end.

There's nothing worse than a pushy narrative.
October 23, 2004
This is the kind of upbeat screwball comedy Hollywood used to do smoothly and well.
