A romantic comedy with a topnotch performance
from Timothy Hutton, Made In Heaven is a beguil-
ing film for the whole family. The story begins
with the untimely death of its hero and his
arrival in heaven. After some initial adjust-
ments, he meets Annie, played by Top Guns
enchanting Kelly McGillis, and falls in love.
But even in heaven, the course of true love is
never easy. Annie is a new soul due on earth
and Mike must risk everything and return to
earth to find her. Sharply directed by Alan
Rudolph (Choose Me, Welcome to L.A.), the film
moves with a subtle comic rythym. Laced with a
wonderful supporting turn from Maureen Stapleton
and a brilliantly disguised performance by one
of Hollywoods hottest actresses (whose identity
will remain a mystery), Made In Heaven also
boasts several surprise cameos. The pursuit of
eternal bliss has never been so sly, engaging
or magical as it is in Made In Heaven.
How in Heaven did they meet? How on Earth will
they find each other?

Another lost gem of the 80s. With cameos by
Tom Petty, Ric Ocasek and Neil Young (explaining
the above average soundtrack.)
Weve seen another copy of this floating around
probably from a tv airing that has major tint
adjustments, unnecessary brightening and a great
deal of zoomed and cropped picture. Enjoy this copy
as it was originally intended for home viewing.
