Critics Consensus

John Travolta plays an angel in Nora Ephron's maudlin Michael, a grating comedy that doesn't tap into the heavenly charms of her best work.

Movie Info

When jaded journalists Frank (William Hurt) and Huey (Robert Pastorelli), along with "angel expert" Dorothy (Andie MacDowell), travel to a small town in Iowa to investigate a story, they find Michael (John Travolta), a disheveled man claiming to be an angel. But Michael is less than angelic: he drinks, smokes and basks in the attention of women. As the group travels to Chicago, Michael teaches them about relationships, faith and miracles, suggesting that he may be exactly whom he says he is.

    Not one of Travolta's best, but I definitely liked it more than I anticipated I would.

    Maybe, i just don't like "Nora Ephron", but I get it was just that this was a flimsy film, not nessacerily intended to be bad, or that the acting was bad, but it was directed with such disregard that i wasn't sure where it was going or what it was looking for, but it was all over the place, and not getting any closer to home!
