A firefighting pilot is killed while saving his friend’s life, then returns as a ghost to mentor his replacement and watch over his girlfriend…
Seen before? Nope.
Best performance: John Goodman’s great fun in a supporting role.
Best scene/moment/sequence: Audrey Hepburn’s cameo (as an angel, essentially) is suitably off-kilter and serene.
Review: Not really my cup of tea. It’s soppy, tepid stuff, at times rather like an (admittedly well-made) American TV movie shown on a weekday afternoon on Channel 5. Good dialogue and a decent cast just about keep it flying, though. (Speaking of which, the various aerial sequences are really well staged.)
Five warm beers out of 10.
