Almost an Angel

Almost an Angel

Movie: Almost an Angel
Director: John Cornell
Produced by: Ironbark Films, Paramount
Released By: Paramount
MPAA Rating: PG

Australian star Paul Hogan just couldn’t seem to come up with a hit comparable to his 1986 international hit Crocodile Dundee. Hogan’s Almost an Angel was a nice try, but no cigar. The star plays a lifelong thief who suffers a potentially fatal accident. While “in limbo”, Hogan is visited by God. When he recovers, Hogan is convinced that he’d been returned to the land of the living in order to do God’s work. He turns over a new leaf, coming to the assistance of wheelchair-bound Elias Koteas and his pretty sister Linda Kozlowski. At first suspicious of Hogan, Kozlowski is finally won over by his new-found sincerity. So lightweight that it threatens to float away at any moment, Almost an Angel is held together exclusively by Paul Hogan’s star appeal. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to insure a box-office success.
