    Just as an angel, it's soft and delicate. There aren't too many big moments, but along the way you do develop feeling. You can likely thank Nora Ephron for that.

  1. This kind of angel stuff is classic Hollywood fare, especially at Christmastime. Thus, it's all the more wonder that director Nora Ephron has missed and mishandled so many of her cues.

    Michael doesn't set up big drama or punch up big moments. It ambles.

    It's a little too low-key to be an effective romance and a little too soft to be anything more ambitious. Ultimately, it's neither offensive nor horrible; it's just another unspectacular, uninspired entry on Nora Ephron's erratic resume.
