Editorial Reviews

Aspiring composer Jim Sanders (Michael E. Knight of ALL MY CHILDREN) is engaged to spoiled rich girl Patty (Phoebe Cates of FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH). But the morning after his bachelor party, Jim wakes up hung over to discover a broken-winged, real-life angel (the stunningly beautiful Emmanuelle Beart of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE) in his swimming pool. Now, the secret of Jim's heavenly houseguest is out, and he must deal with a dangerously jealous fiancee, an exploitive future father-in-law, a group of buddies with an outrageous business plan and an impossibly beautiful angel who must balance both the wrath of God and her discovery of French fries. Can an earthbound mortal be passionately touched by an angel and still find a way to live happily ever after?

5.0 out of 5 stars Cates is great, but Beart makes this movie January 21, 2007
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
As the earthbound angel, the almost-impossibly lovely Beart is enchanting. Without saying a word, she's funny too, trying to walk in high heels, and eating fast food french fries.

This was one of my favorite movies from the 80s. It's well worth owning. It makes me feel good to watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best romantic comedies ever made. September 9, 2005
By P. Krug
Few things make me more sad than when a truely wonderful film like this one bombs and then goes largely unnoticed for years and years, with it being used to fill up shelf space in video stores and rental outlets, and few people even hearing about it or finding it, and even fewer actually getting to see it. It especially makes me mad when a super-cheeseball film like MANNAQUIN can find enough popularity to have a sequel made (of sorts) but not this one, which has similar plot themes (ordinary guy gets magical girlfriend) but is way, way comparing a film like MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING to forgettable trash like MEATBALLS 3.

You fall in love with the characters and the story, and the film has several hilarious moments, like when the angel charms the attack dog from next door, and then Patty's dad comes to berate Jim and then sees the angel and is charmed by her mere presence, then the moment the angel and Jim go inside the attack dog turns vicious again and attacks the dad! (Remember this is a comedy, so the guy doesn't really get hurt or anything, he just runs away terrified with the dog chewing on his pant leg.) O.K., the film's one real weakness is the singing "Love Bug" guy, who is more annoying than anything eles. Otherwise, this film is pure enjoyment beginning to end. The music score is excellent as well. I just wish I knew how to reach the people who made this movie so I could tell them myself how much I love it.

This one is every bit as good as SPLASH and deserves as much recognition as that film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cute romantic comedy from the 80's March 25, 2007
The first time I saw this movie I was in the 4th grade. Since then, I've had this ongoing love for both the movie and French actress Emmanuelle Beart, who was the first woman I ever had a crush on, which, if you see this movie, you will know why. But beyond the lovely Ms. Beart, Date with an Angel is totally worth seeing if you are into very cute romantic comedies.

Jim is getting ready to marry his fiance Patty, a spoiled daddy's girl, when his plans are thrown into a loop. It all begins with his friends kidnapping him for his surprise bachelor party, the moring after which he finds a beautiful angel unconcious in his pool. Jim's attempts to help the angel get home complicates his life in more ways then he has ever imagined and both hilarity and romance ensue.

Date with an Angel is totally worth watching. Both adorable and funny, it will entertain pretty much anyone who sits down to watch it. If you are looking for a fun movie to watch with the whole family or just for a night with your friends, then you need look no further than this unsung 80's gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite angelic November 18, 2005
A Kid's Review
it all started when i was watching tv. i confess that it was late in the night and i wasnt able to sleep. i was flipping through the channels when i found this movie. "date with an angel, hmm, sounds interesting," i thought. so i watched it. i sadly missed the very beginning, but saw the part where the angel falls from the sky. i had to watch the rest. although i thought that the movie could have done well without the cursing and that one part in the forest, i absolutely enjoyed it (at least there wasnt much to see). the acting was great, although i didnot like patty at all! she was a B-R-A-T. The angel was absolutely adorable and loveable and jim was quite selfless (patty wasnt right for him anyway). the ending was great just as one would hope it would be. all in all i havent seen many 80's movies, but i would ask for this one if i saw it in the store!

5.0 out of 5 stars I believe in Angels November 28, 2004
I remember walking in the mall one day and I was pulled aside by one of those survey people. Well they asked me to look at a new movie preview coming up and asked for my thoughts and ideas. I loved movies so I had extra time to spend. THey lead me a small room and played the trailer to this movie. They asked me what I thought etc. I remember telling them that I would very much go see it. That I thought it was refreshing changes form devil related movies. It gives viewers an awsome visual of how angels can be. One of my favorate scenes in this movie, is where the angel, and Michael iswalking up to his apt. and a mean dog comes running up behind them barking and ready to attack. Then all of a sudden, the angel turnes around and with a sweet stair and a wonderful grin she "calms" the dog. It is very funny as well!!!
It has a magical heavenly quality to it that is a must see!!!!!!
