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?

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.

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 better...like 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.

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.

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!!!!!!

I remember watching Date with An Angel the first time when I was only 10 years old back in the early 90's. From there on I just loved the movie. Today, this movie still rock! It's really a great movie for the family. I can't believe critics rated as a underrated movie, but somehow it slides by me as a heartwarming, heavenly-made movie about a beautiful angel sent to earth to bring a guy back to heaven. The beautiful angel is played by Emmanuelle Beart which she definately looks beautiful and stunningly. From what I heard, they had chose over 500 women actress for this role. They did a excellent job with the angel. She looks like she's real. Sent from above to Earth to bring back Jim (Micheal E. Knight), a composer whose life isn't going to well because of continous terrible headaches, also engaged to a spoiled rich girl Patty(Phoebe Cates).
Too make the story short, Jim become lucky and finds the injured angel in his pool after waking up from a bachelor party and tries to hide it from his friends, fiancee, and soon to be father-in-law. When things got out hand, his friends wants the angel as a business plan, his fiancee becomes outrageous jealous and misunderstands as a affair, and his future father-in-law wants her as a world marketing plan. In the end, Jim did past away and was brought back to life by the angel and...the angel became a human.
Date with an Angel is a great movie and I still do watch it. I heavenly recommend this movie. It has none of that oscar winning nomination or 3 hour long of boring concept with no point. It's just a movie that makes you feel how good life is. Get in DVD for widescreen and better quality.
