Synopsis: Likeable winged creature treks across the American heartland. Oh wait – that’s the Synopsis for Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird!
Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Would-be ghosts. UFO voyagers. A chicken that pecks out Moonlight Sonata on the piano – blindfolded! They’re the kind of stories that keep the National Mirror in the nation’s shopping carts.”
What Did I Learn?: Angels aren’t the cleanest of supernatural beings.
You Might Like This Movie If: Just like Michael, you know you can never have too much sugar.
Really?: 1) So… thousands of years earlier, Michael fought Satan, and nobody thinks to ask him about that anecdote? 2) Funny how those wings aren’t very noticeable underneath a trenchcoat.
Rating: Michael is an enjoyable, and surprisingly heart-warming little road movie with a lot of nice moments and a fine cast (including the late Bob Hoskins as a sleazy tabloid mogul). That said, the jokes are somewhat hit-and-miss, and the third act is a bit weak. 7.5/10 stars.
