Critic Reviews of "Heaven Can Wait"Washington PostAugust 30, 2016
This is a very sweet movie to watch, the pleasant cinematic equivalent of light summer reading.TIME MagazineJanuary 24, 2014
[The film] has everything going for it: big laughs, populist politics, billowy sequences set in heaven, a murder plot, a climactic Super Bowl game, a supporting cast of choice comic actors, and best of all, a touching (but PG) romance.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Heaven Can Wait is an outstanding film.Chicago ReaderMarch 21, 2007
It's certainly likable enough and was a big hit when it came out, but one could hardly call it an auspicious artistic debut -- a crafty commercial entertainment with a certain amount of intelligence is more like it.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The film drags its feet uncertainly from beginning to end.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
There's nothing worse than a pushy narrative.Common Sense MediaMay 03, 2016
Still-relevant '70s comic fantasy has some profanity.Radio TimesJanuary 24, 2014
This updated version of the 1941 film Here Comes Mr Jordan is one of the few remakes that is almost as good as the original.EmanuelLevy.ComJuly 26, 2008
Supremely produced, this whimsical romantic comedy served as star vehicle for Julie Christie and especially Warren Beatty, who made an impressive co-directing debut with Buck Henry; the film deservedly won the Oscar for Art Direction.TV GuideMarch 21, 2007
There are a few laughs from Grodin and Cannon, but Beatty and Christie are like 400-pound gorillas chasing a milkweed seed.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJuly 09, 2006
Frivolous and amusing in spots.MovieholeJune 11, 2005
A comedy classic.....if you've never seen it, you have to ask yourself...why?
