There's something very forced about the writing and it's hard to judge what is more annoying, Hoffman's turgid dialogue or Thompson's embarrassing performance. This kind of movie really needs at least one likeable or relatable character. Two or three chuckles and a terrific cameo by Adam Driver.
Cosy film which I mistakenly watched several days after Christmas. Grant goes through the motions, and it's testament to his unique and immense skills that his angel character stays (barely) the right side of creepy. Niven is very good and steals every scene; Loretta Young is not.
