You'll see throughout the film an attempt to communicate that sometimes life throws curve balls, but that those curve balls should not cause one to stop exploring. To remember the good in life. Ultimately the film is about being kind to yourself and others.
The Angel theme doesn't necessarily come through very strongly for most of the film, but is present at the right moments. I'd like to think that this is how things would really be done if you were being taught lessons by heavenly beings.
Best of all, this film is family friendly, with no cursing. The starring kid actually is somewhat Charming too. I did however feel the need to take off a star from my rating, because I felt the solution to the toy factory problem was not well ironed out.
In the solution, it seems like everyone just jumps on board for no apparent reason, all because they're not even sure what they're getting. In a real-world situation, board members would have found this gimmicky and would have wanted to vet the product first, especially as the real issue with the toys was never really addressed.
Presumably recapturing lost feelings allowed the father to move forward and make better products, but we don't actually ever see this. As such, I feel this was a weak bit of writing in an otherwise decent script.
It left me feeling unattached to some of the aspects of the show. But otherwise this movie left me with a good feeling, in a Touched by an Angel sort of way. I feel it is worth a watch.
