Cute, charming, spirited stuff

A stinker, but almost worth seeing for the lovely Emmanuelle Beart.

Is there something lighter than "featherweight"?

Audience Reviews for Date with an Angel

An engaged man finds an angel and can't decide whether to marry his b***** girlfriend or keep falling in love with the angel. The idea itself is stupid so therefore the movie is stupid.

This is one of those 80s comedies that are bad and cheesy plot wise but are quirky enough to love, especially if you were an 80s child. Terrible special effects although they did do a great job with the wings and lighting to make the angel appear to glow. I love the French fry bit and Emmanuelle plays her character perfectly.

Interesting take on angels, I watched the whole thing and wasn't bored, so it was okay.
