Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [The film] has everything going for it: big laughs, populist politics, billowy sequences set in heaven, a murder plot, a climactic Super Bowl game, a supporting cast of choice comic actors, and best of all, a touching (but PG) romance.
Fresh: Heaven Can Wait is an outstanding film.
Fresh: This is the kind of upbeat screwball comedy Hollywood used to do smoothly and well.
Fresh: It's certainly likable enough and was a big hit when it came out, but one could hardly call it an auspicious artistic debut -- a crafty commercial entertainment with a certain amount of intelligence is more like it.
