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 a very sweet movie to watch, the pleasant cinematic equivalent of light summer reading.
