Send your spirits soaring with THE PREACHER'S WIFE, available for the first time on Blu-ray with a new digital restoration and enhanced picture and sound. Academy Award(R) winner Denzel Washington (Best Actor, 2001, TRAINING DAY) and world-renowned artist Whitney Houston star in this uplifting film, brimming with laughter, romance and an inspiring soundtrack. When a charming angel named Dudley is sent to Earth to help a young minister and his beautiful wife revive their marriage, the last thing anyone expects is for Dudley to fall in love with the preacher's wife! Enjoy every magical twist in this delightful romantic comedy, featuring 9 songs by Grammy Award(R) winner Whitney Houston, including Billboard's Top 10 hit "I Believe In You And Me." It's divine on Blu-ray!
This tedious remake of the classic Christmas movie The Bishop's Wife falls on its face by significantly altering the careful design of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert E. Sherwood's story for the original film. In Sherwood's version, a rather wooden, inept bishop and his lonely wife unknowingly take into their lives a heaven-sent angel who aids the former and ends up falling in love with the latter. In this unnecessary update, an inner-city preacher (Courtney B. Vance) and his estranged spouse (Whitney Houston) are visited by a celestial goof (Denzel Washington), whose unsolicited offer of help is enough to galvanize Vance's character to fix his own problems. What that means is this: by the second act, there's no reason to have Washington's angel in the story. Even his infatuation with the missus isn't enough to warrant his hanging around this movie; the change is a colossal blunder by director Penny Marshall. Vance ends up stealing the film from Washington, but it's a Pyrrhic victory; for the most part this movie just seems like a series of random scenes between opportunities for Houston to belt out songs. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Contrary to what the reviewer that Amazon.com used has to say, I loved this movie. Maybe it's because my love of gospel music. Maybe it's because I'm a hopeless romantic. Read morePublished on Dec 4 2002 by S. McElligott
