Heaven Can Wait (1978) Review


How's this for high-concept: Star football player is accidentally swiped by angels before he's supposed to die, then is inserted into the body of a bazillionaire. Football player then launches the rich guy into a crusade for worldly good and, along the way, trains to become a football star. In the hands of anyone but Warren Beatty, this might really stink (see our review of the 1943 original), but the old scoundrel infuses the hero with such earnest and wide-eyed spirit that it's hard not to like. Julie Christie is badly miscast as the love interest, but it's Charles Grodin who steals the show in a smarmy role.
