Dove Review

Here is a unique story about an angel who helps people without them even knowing it, at least until the end. The film opens with an angel being dispatched on a mission and she winds up on Earth without any money. She pawns her heavenly harp to gain some cash and is soon about her mission, which is to help two young people named Len Burrows and the girl he loves named Jenny together. They can’t seem to manage it on their own. The angel’s other mission is to encourage a husband and wife to spend more time together. The husband, named Dick, loves music but hasn’t invited his wife to a concert in a long time because she turned him down the last few times he asked. What he doesn’t realize is that she wants him to ask her again. In one funny scene a man dances with the angel and asks, “Isn’t this heaven?” and she replies, “Hardly!”

This is a nice film with a nice message and we are pleased to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus, due to the utterance of a strong word and several smoking and drinking scenes. The message in this one is timely, namely to help one another.
