Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Travolta's charismatic presence is the only positive element in Nora Ephron's flawed romantic fable marred by rough narrative spots and scattered direction, again showing that Ephron lacks the most basic technical skills."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Travolta magic is sprinkled everywhere"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
"John Travolta's Ever-Sap - Coming Soon to a Supermarket Near You"
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Not much in the way of laughs or anything else."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A cloying and cloudy romantic comedy in which Travolta dons angelic wings. Michael is innocuously whimsical but wasteful"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"Some moments as lovely as the smell of cookies, especially the dance number."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Magical movie about an archangel who has a great set of wings, loves sugar and makes women swoon."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
