Editorial Reviews

Can love bridge the gap between Earth and Heaven? Moviemakers have thought so for decades. And the pursuit of eternal bliss has never been so sly, engaging or magical as when Timothy Hutton and Kelly McGillis strike up a romance Made in Heaven. Deceased drifter Mike (Hutton) arrives in Heaven and quickly falls for newborn soul Annie (McGillis), soon to start her assignment on Earth.
When Annie leaves, Mike follows, risking all to find her in her new identity with neither having memories of their previous celestial existence. Maureen Stapleton, Amanda Plummer and an array of star cameos highlight what director Alan Rudolph (Afterglow, Welcome to L.A.) calls a "good old-fashioned fairy tale of destiny and love." Watch and "feel like you're on Cloud Nine" (Joel Siegel, Good Morning America/ABC-TV).

5.0 out of 5 stars "There's more to the picture than meets the eye!" April 28, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie for the first time on TV by 'accident' and was quite intrigued by the whole thing. But, like most naive viewers, only saw what appeared on the surface. Being a life-long Neil Young fan, I was very interested in his part in it, but at that time had no idea the title song "We've Never Danced" was one of his. The second time I saw it on TV I taped it, commercials and all, and it began to grow on me. Shortly after, I had a terrible tragedy in my own life and the 'Heaven' aspect took deeper roots. A few years later at my daughter's wedding, I was completely surprised when she chose "We've Never Danced" for the father/daughter dance selection. It was on that 'ballroom floor' that the whole meaning began to sink in. Through my tears I realized that there were no 'accidents' and what was 'made in Heaven' was not the love story, it was the song. From the first note played upon the arrival in Heaven to the final composition when the band is formed, it is the song that slowly takes center stage, enters your heart, and leaves you forever enchanted. This movie is a must-see for all those who desire learning to read between the lines, only to find out that things are not always what they appear to be. "If you don't really know where you want to go, it makes no difference which road you choose." Thank-you Alan Rudolph, and thanks again Neil. Buy it now...it could change your whole outlook!

Format:VHS Tape
This Compelling movie brings much Understanding to the concept of "Life After Death" and gives us a few clues about how to get-around when we do not have bodies, anymore! This movie also shows that you do not just Quit doing all of the things you love...you simply have a Lot More Time to do them! If you have ever questioned dogmatic beliefs or had "Lucid" dreams that foretold an After-Life that contradicts what you have been led to believe...this movie is for you. If you are a person who seeks Knowledge about Spirituality, this movie is a great addition to your personal collection of images, data and theories. Or....if you are just a Romantic person, who enjoys a Great Love Story! Get your box of tissues ready and delve into this Highly Under-rated film. I would give it 5 stars, if it were a little faster-paced...but, that's just my Opinion. Most women Love this film (and guys should give it a try)! "Made in Heaven" is difficult to find, where I live, so I wonder how many people know about this Great Movie. There are many surprising scenes in this film and I believe it should be considered a Classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film got lost June 4, 2006
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
As it happens with some wonderful films, this one got lost in the crowd. Reviews were not favourable and not much noise was made over it. For me, enough to see it! The story line is basic, but beautifully carried. A must see film! On DVD would be better (hint!)

A little tid bit: For those who have seen it and wondered who played the androgynous character of Emmet, it is actually actress Debra Winger (then married to Hutton) who did a cameo and is (purposely) not billed. Look closely and you will see her!

Also, for the Amazon customer who wondered if there was a soundtrack: there was. In the US it was out on LP and Cassette. You may find it abroad on CD. The main theme song "We Never Danced," interpreted by The Motels' Martha Davis, is found on The Motels CD - Anthologyland. Amazon has it.

UPDATE: This film has been released as a Warner Bros. on On-Demand DVD-R.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calling all Believers in Fate! June 13, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
When I saw this movie, it was on tv one Saturday afternoon, and it has left an impression years and years later. From the way the characters live in heaven to the lost soul aspect of the main character before he meets his soul mate. Yes, this gives new meaning to the word soul mate. How people can connect and it is for a lifetime. This movie breaths new hope in the thought of heaven, happiness, and finding your true love. This is a movie that will keep you from moving off the couch until the end... Touching, interesting, warm and the kind of feel good movie that blends lives together. if you haven't watched it look out for the hitchhiking scene...incredible irony. Recommend it 100%.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most under-rated sleeper I've seen March 25, 2007
Format:DVD
This little known gem has been successfully ignored for too long. I am hopeful the DVD version will finally become available soon.

As with all good movies, the promotion and casting are never the real reason fo success as much as whether the story and direction can create a psycological tie to the viewer. This one excelled for me in many ways.

The exquisite soundtrack had it all. One of the first to use popular songs from a by-gone era to create a nostalgia, and the haunting "Elmo's" theme that Timothy Hutton develeoped throughout the re-incarnation portion was brought to a head beautifully in the closing scene. I was brought to tears in the reunion ending. It still gives me the chills each time I see it. This Neal Young tune "We Never Danced" was treated wonderfully.

Another fine aspect of this film that is a mystery is the casting of the character "Emmett". I believe it is Debora Winger, but I could be wrong. I assumed the character to be either Micheal the Arc-Angel or God, but certainly not the devil. He (or she?) is definitely in control of Heaven and souls. Iwas also very delighted to see the vignettes by Tom Petty, Neal Young and Ric Ocasek.

I urge everyone to see this when it becomes available.
