    Great story of a nice guy who is taken before his time. But the Angels make a mistake and before he can be put back in his body it's cremated. Now he takes a temporary body while they find him another one.

    Although the films possesses some memorable moments, including a moving final scene and strong supporting performances from James Mason and Charles Grodin, I couldn't quite believe that this was nominated for 9 Academy Awards. Some seriously dodgy sound production on the football scenes which hasn't aged well, plus a few plot inconsistencies specifically around the transfer of spirits to bodies. Having said this, it did generate a few laughs and the basic premise is strong.

    Delightfully reminiscent of certain comedies from the 30s and 40s. Grodin and Cannon give truly hysterical performances.

    Reminded recently of the cracker-jack casting; great wit and superb chemistry of Beatty-Christie

    Great performances by Warren Beatty and Jack Warden. Charles Grodin and Dyan Cannon were hysterical. Great fun for the entire family. Still relevant.

    Good cast, mediocre movie. The scenes of Warren Beatty playing football are ridiculous.

    Warren Beatty is once again miscast in his own comedy. Still, the oddball film has some fun and thoughtful moments.
