Trivia

This is Kristin Davis's second Christmas movie after Three Days (2001). Interestingly, that film also centers around her character dying at the beginning and features an angel. See more »

Goofs

There is a Grover Cleveland school in Chicago, but it is on West Byron, not 17th, as Max's niece says when she invites Eve to the Christmas pageant. In addition, it is implied that Eve's brother and his family live in Oak Park, so her nephews would not be in the same school. See more »

Quotes

Eve: I would just do it all so differently if I had a second chance.
Pearl: I hear that a lot.
Eve: I just don't know how I lost track of everything that was important.
Pearl: Hear that a lot too.
Eve: You must hear everything a lot.
Pearl: Well, one thing I never hear: no one has ever said, "I spent too much time loving someone."

Angels that break the rules!
18 December 2017 | by kz917-1See all my reviews

Kristin Davis as a workaholic turned angel after an accident is directed to help grant the wish of a young girl for her uncle (Eric McCormack) to be happy once again. One of the rays of light is Shirley MacLaine as the guardian angel.

This movie hits all the right notes (Eric McCormack sings several tunes) and tugs all the right heart strings!

Enjoyable flick!
