  1. Star Lord's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Il paradiso può attendere (titolo italiano). Bel film, non male. Peccato che nella traduzione italiana abbiano utilizzato il termine "capitano" per tradurre Quarterback. Un tantino incompetenti. xD

  5. Aardsy's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Standard fare. The original is better.

  6. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    What would this film be like without Dyan Cannon and Charles Grodin?

  7. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    One of my Sunday afternoon guilty pleasures, probably due to my falling in love with Julie Christie when it was released. It has the feel of a vanity project but there are some nice touches, even a little bit of heft thanks to a typically sensitive performance from Warden. In fact all the supporting performances are good (Grodin excellent) so Beatty can get away with being the least charismatic person on the screen.

  8. Thomas's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Dated quirky rom-com, Beatty doesn't quite manage to carry this film convincingly but the on-screen chemistry between him and Christie makes up for it.

  9. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Dated, daft & quite dull. The story itself is a fine premise, Beatty returning from the dead to find maybe he was missing the point all his life, but the execution is a slack & sloppy affair that lacks any propulsion. Beatty & Christie for all their charisma & beauty shuffle around each other like a couple of coat stands. There's some light humour but the whole film feels cheap & ill-conceived.

  10. Ramzi's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    An enjoyable, fairly light film that doesn't go after redemption or second chances as its premise could suggest. It takes a while to find its rhythm but eventually settles into being funny and occassionally touching. Charles Grodin's performance steals the show. Very nice score.

  11. Michael King's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Decidedly average comedy that really doesn't do justice to 'Here Comes Mr Jordan' of which it is a remake. Truthfully Warren Beatty didn't have the talent to carry such a film, hope he asked James Mason for some acting lessons. Funniest thing in this film was Dyan Cannon's bedroom decor.

  12. First Lady Dré's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

  13. Gareth Jones's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Oh it's all very silly and like an episode of Quantum Leap (which I do like!). That said, I did enjoy watching Warren Beatty even though the whole thing was a bit ridiculous.

  14. Mark Commode's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    very nice film, funny times with julie christies face

  15. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Bit creepy but kind of nice to watch. Like a happy predecessor of Fallen, we are the same spirit just moving in different bodies. Always in the eyes “do I know you?” Perfect acting masters and music score.

  16. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Heaven Can Wait is yet another offbeat entry into Beatty's canon. It might not have the sense of urgency seen in Shampoo, the social consciousness of Bullworth or even the liberation values propelled by Bonnie and Clyde, but it stands on its own by breaking rom-com conventions and offering entertaining thoughts about life and death. A great cast helps cinch it.

  17. Ethan's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    A decent comedy from Warren Beatty. The faults in this film can be forgiven due to it's contributions to the making of Reds.

  18. peaches and plums's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

  19. Riesca Amallia's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

  20. Cesar Vega R.'s rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

  21. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Heaven Can Wait

    Probably as perfect a romcom as you're likely to find...Beatty is fine, Julie Christie is lovely, Jack Warden is great...they're all upstaged by Charles Grodin & Dyan Cannon
