Michael is a ‘guardian angel’ who appears when children need an invisible (‘imaginary’) friend until the birthday after his help worked. His charge from ages 5 to 10, would be-author Jane Claremont, is about to marry Tv series star Hugh Danderford. Now Michael appears again, but neither understands with which mission. He’s in love with her, a new experience, gradually seduces her by being his irresistible, soul-mate-like self and becomes corporeal. She stubbornly claims toward him, Hugh and her best friend, a psychotherapist, to remain committed to Hugh.
User Reviews: I see a good many movies on DVD and I have lately ventured into the rom- com field without much happiness or success. Movies in this genre are really intended as date movies that the girl drags the boy too so she can live out some fantasy time. This movie is supposed to be a fantasy from childhood come to life, but there is very little life in it. The imaginary friend who comes to rescue the lead character just as she is about to marry a self centered actor is likable enough, since he isn’t obnoxious, but just about nothing else about the movie makes sense. Why is the imaginary friend able to stay in the real world beyond his supposed departure time? How did he know to come back? Why is there a little black kid popping up and advising him on the rules of imaginary friends?
If he has come back to rescue this girl, why doesn’t he say so straight out? Oyvay! Who cares? Dumb and sappy, this movie really stinks. At least it follows one of the key unwritten rules of rom-coms: everything happens in New York City. You can have rom and you can have com, but if you want both, its gotta be in the Big Apple, right?
