Storyline

In a Heaven run like a business by a female God, poor returns from the angels are making God disappointed. She decides to set an example, by destroying Las Vegas with floods and fire. An unhappy angel (Billy Crystal), trying to find a purpose to his existence, pleads on their behalf. He makes a deal with God, that if he can locate 6 virtuous people before the deadline, Vegas will be spared. He takes on human form, but realises it's harder than he expected to find anyone with true virtue. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Billy Crystal as an Angel & Nancy Walker as God How Perfect is That?
31 January 2019 | by hdelbrukSee all my reviews

This is a typical 1970s TV Movie. There are some wonderful historical elements to enjoy here that were not evident in 1978. However, the film is still pretty basic in its story and message about love, marriage, and relationships. But what allows this movie to have true significance is Nancy Walker playing God (a pretty revolutionary idea for the time) while providing a very flip and humorous relationship with Crystal, the confused angel who learns about human emotions. Also look out for a young Arman Assante as the heavy who does a real nice job.
