Sweet , Funny, and Poignant
Dad Jason (Judge Reinhold) is a bigshot psychologist with a booming literary career. This leaves him little time for his daughter, Sam, the product of his now defunct marriage. When his ex-wife dies, however, Jason must take care of his daughter himself. Her arrival at his very modern apartment complex means an interruption of his status quo with women and work. Sam is sad and sulky until her guardian angel starts meeting with her at intervals. Will Jason and Sam, with the help of the angel, learn to live with each other?
This wonderful family movie has some very sweet and poignant moments. The girl portraying Sam gives a very realistic performance and Reinhold charms and disgusts like an alternating current. There is a wonderful parade of good-looking women popping in and out of Jason's life, too. Recommended for those who love bright happy endings, after much turmoil.
