Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: As warm and cheery as a mug of hot cocoa on a frosty morn. – Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Preacher's Wife is one Christmas picture that actually is in the spirit of the season. It's warm, sentimental, amusing yet serious, bringing fantasy to bear upon the painfully real. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Feb 24, 2007

Rotten: If not for the pervasive spirit of the season, something like this could easily send me into sugar shock. It's a little too nice and happy. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Penny Marshall's remake of The Bishop's Wife is very uneven -- sometimes sweet or soulful, often stiff. – Susan Stark, Detroit News, Jun 24, 2010

Whitney is amazing. This is one of the best family of all time!!!!

A must see

I love the music in this movie. The story line is alright but Whitney was amazing!

Watch it every year classic!!!!

I love this movie in both versions old and new, you need fantasy to get away from the bad news and high prices.
