Critic Reviews for The Heavenly Kid

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Everything about "The Heavenly Kid" is ripped off, from a sprig of music that apes the "Beverly Hills Cop" theme to Gedrick, who was obviously cast because he looks like Tom Cruise, but cheaper.

...repetitious and surprisingly dull...

December 7, 2005 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Worthy of attention from only the staunchest of '80s archivists.

November 20, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A gem as memorable as your first attempt at lacing your own shoes. One to be treasured.

Classic '80s movie. What happened to these actors? Can't believe that was Malcolm's mom.

Audience Reviews for The Heavenly Kid

A predictable, familiar, old story, but like Back to the Future, says something about the 80s. Mostly this movie is entertaining, and I liked it.
