In this romantic comedy fantasy, an angel (Emmanuelle Beart) with a heavenly body falls into the swimming pool of Jim Sanders (Michael E. Knight). Hung over from his bachelor party, his encounter with the angel has Jim questioning his upcoming marriage to Patty (Phoebe Cates), the daughter of a wealthy cosmetics mogul (David Dukes).

This movie ought to be shot. It wastes not only the idea of the angel, but also the human presence of Cates, a bright and quick actress who is required to play a simpering bimbo.

Date With an Angel intends to soar high and with its magical elements intact, and it should have. But this film is grounded by derivative plotting.

...terminally underwhelming from start to finish...

Beart will take your breath away each time she's on screen.

Cute, charming, spirited stuff

A stinker, but almost worth seeing for the lovely Emmanuelle Beart.
