Cybill Shepherd plays a pregnant woman whose husband is killed before their baby is born; once he gets to heaven, he begs for a chance to come back to her and his unborn child. The twist is that he returns in the form of Robert Downey Jr., boyfriend to Cybill's daughter (Mary Stuart Masterson). When the daughter brings him home from college, he gets his memory back--and starts coming on to her mom. Sounds like a Jerry Springer show--"Help! My dad has been reincarnated as my boyfriend!"--but this Emile Ardolino film actually has a passable amount of charm and wit, once it gets into gear. It gives you a sense of just how funny and charming Downey can be, given the right material. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If the idea of the father/daughter relationship is distasteful to you, then give this one a miss. The way it's handled it didn't bother me personally. Not a particularly memorable film, but perfectly serviceable watching if you want a bit of fluffy escapism on a quiet evening in. Everybody is terribly nice and too good to be true, the house they're living in is impossibly lovely, and a short little scnene of the afterlife, in a place above the clouds where the souls of the deceased are recycled is rather memorable with an official tapping away on a then outlandish device which looks uncannily like a particularly funky tablet any child might have today.
Picture and sound of the DVD are okay, perfectly adequate for a film from the 80s. Not on a par with a modern HD production or a remastered version of an older film.
