Almost an Angel(1990) pairs up the popular 80’s movie couple Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski, best known for their roles in the Crocodile Dundee trilogy. (Yes it was a trilogy, the released a third one in 2001. Didn’t see it? Me either.)
Anyway after the first two Dundee movies, and with an apparent budding romance going on (Hogan and Kozlowski were married in 1990) and looking to cash in on the popularity of the two, we find the movie Almost an Angel.
In this movie a small time crook named Terry Dean (Hogan) is convinced he was sent back by god to do good. He meets up with and befriends a bitter wheel chair cripple (Elias Koteas) that happens to be the sister of woman (Kozlowski) that runs a center for children. He uses his “skills” for good to help save the shelter from closing as we watch the tension of a potential relationship build between the two.
As a romantic comedy, this is not on the level of When Harry Met Sally. It isn’t even on the level of You Got Mail. But for a bit of an offbeat humorous story, there are far worse ways to spend some time, than to watch the chemistry between Hogan and Kozlowski on the screen.
