|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Four disparate San Franciscans die in a bus accident in 1959, and find themselves inexorably linked with a baby who's been
born at that same exact moment; what's more, only he can see and hear them. A great showcase for Downey--whose body is inhabited, at various times, by his heavenly friends--though Woodard is equally good, as usual. Fans of mushy, sentimental, old-fashioned Hollywood fantasies (like us) should enjoy this fable, which hits all the right notes; others beware. Based on a 9-minute short-subject by the coauthors of this script. Look fast to see Bob Newhart's son, Robert William Newhart,
impersonating his dad. Panavision.
