Kino Lorber has announced the upcoming release of director Tom McLoughlin’s underrated fantasy romantic comedy, Date with an Angel (1987) on Blu-ray. Stars Michael E. Knight, Phoebe Cates.

Jim Sanders (Michael E. Knight) is getting ready for his upcoming marriage to rich, spoiled Patty Winston (Phoebe Cates). But after a wild bachelor party he wakes the next morning to find a beautiful winged woman (Emmanuelle Béart) floundering in his pool. It turns out that the gorgeous woman is actually an angel. While trying to convince Patty he is not cheating on her, and to save the angel from being discovered by the media, Jim starts to fall for the otherworldly being.

Cute, charming, spirited stuff.

Siskel and Ebert gave it two thumbs down. Rotten Tomatoes is mostly the dreaded green splatter. IMDB has it on a scale of 5.8 out of 10. Ignore the critics. If you saw this film as a kid growing up in the 80’s you would truly appreciate its fun and heartfelt fantasy. Emmanuelle Beart radiates and steals every scene she appears in.

    I saw that movie on TV I think back around that time. This woman was absolutely beautiful. Here, 40 years later I have still been thinking of her from time to time.
