Leila Turner (Pulliam) is a very spoiled rich kid who’s about to fail out of college.  In order to pass, the teacher assigns her to do community service at a place called “Angel House” for the Christmas holiday and have a research paper/report on her desk first day after the break.  Leila is planning on a ski trip to Aspen and is in no mind to volunteer anything.   Meanwhile Tre (Pooch Hall) is a would be musician who is now died and trying to get into heaven.  He’s been given a chance to redeem himself, and is sent back to earth to try to change Leila’s selfish attitude.  What a challenge, as Tre is, shall we say,  a bit befuddled, and Leila is one of the most spoiled kids in history.  Trying to teach her (especially given the air heads she hangs out with) is going to be a heck of a challenge. Of course the fact that she hates Tre, and Tre is forbidden to get romantically involved with a mortal client makes it hard. Dad is a businessman who is too busy to listen to his family.  Lo and behold, he’s building a strip mall in the block where Angel House is located, and they’ve been told to move out as it’s being torn down.

People either love or hate this film.  I can see why people don’t like it.  The acting isn’t the most awesome or spectacular, but Leila is certainly acting what was written, and Tre also is a good character that fits the story.  Plus, as a bonus Harry (Tom Bosley) who runs Angel House, is fantastic as always.  I enjoyed this movie a good deal and thought it was well worth watching.
